Vacation Day 8 – Monaco

After church in Italy, we loaded up the car and drove towards Nice, France. On the way we stopped at Monaco…”a Sunny Place for Shady People!” Monaco’s total area is 2.05 km2 (0.79 sq mi) and is famous for Monte Carlo Casino and The Grand Prix. We had a great time visiting the Monaco Oceanographic Museum (Jacques Cousteau’s Aquarium) and walking around the streets.
