What did I do in Monaco?

13 Jul 2017 What did I do in Monaco?

Monaco is a destination full of surprises and for me was my country #97. It is only eight miles to Italy and seven minutes by helicopter to Nice. This country is half the size of New York City’s Central Park and is focused on sustainability. During my first visit, I saw the first organic gardens in 300 years, the Formula E race with electric cars and enjoyed fine dining and stunning hotels.

Where to eat in Monaco?

I was fortunate to dine at many marvelous locations! I loved Maya Bay, Cipriani and Eat Me!
As well as Chef Marcel Ravin’s Blue Bay
 
and Elsa where I ate right on the water. The food, service and setting were an incredible treat!

Where did I stay in Monaco?

I loved staying at the marvelous Monte Carlo Bay Hotel and exploring the lagoon.

At the Fairmont Monte Carlo, my garden room had a view of the Casino de Monte Carlo and from Nikki Beach I could see the famous Fairmont hairpin turn.

I had a wonderful walking tour with Fatoumata Froissart Diallo from Fair and Fairy and explored the city learning about the history and the future of this country.

How did you travel to Monaco?

I flew to Nice, France and then had a helicopter transfer to Monaco. It is a seven minute ride and on the way back to Nice; I was the only passenger. Thank you Monacair! I loved my flight.
