The Principality of Monaco is reigned for more than 700 years by the Grimaldi family. When I first came eye to eye with their palace, it was still inhabited by a happy family: Prince Reinier, his gorgeous wife Grace Kelly, their son Albert and the beautiful doughters Caroline and Stéphanie. How cruel life can be! A few months after my visit Gracia lost her life in a car crash which also seriously injured Stéphanie. Afterwards Steph was looking her way in life, got a short carrier as a singer ("Ouragan") and some wrong friends, Caroline married a couple of times (one husband killed in a boat accident) and Albert - now ruler after the death of Reinier - is a bachelor with many girlfriends (and even children...).
Monaco is a must see when visiting the south of France.
For some more tranquillity -we're all getting older, aren't we - I went to the jardin exotique in Eze, It is situated at the summit of the Col d'Eze, around the ruins of an old castle. Great views!
