There's plenty to say about Monaco. Even If I visited for the first time during the first week of August I came back several time during the whole semester I spent in France, afterall it was about 1 hour-train-trip away. From all the times I went to Monaco there are four times that I remember the most:
The first one is obviously my first time there, there is plenty in Monaco to impress you. We traveled in group and the first you see is the Gare or train station, which is in my opinion one of very high standard. After that we got to see the city which has amazing views from almost everywhere you stop to take a picture. Monaco is probably the smallest city to have a Ferrari agency and of course we just have to take pictures of the cars in there.
In the centre de ville, I got to see aquatic museum, a very nice church of which I didn't enquire too much, a magnificent view from the highest point in the city and of course the Palace Museum. I was lucky enough (and later paid for it) to get to watch some guys throwing flags and doing some cool tricks with them. Or course, since I decided to stay and watch them I missed the train i was supposed to catch and had to take the next train home. In this next train we got to meet to guys from the UAE and one from Turkey, they all seemed very friendly once we got to talking, mostly about football and of course, traveling.
The second time I went to Monaco was just a few hours before we went to Paris(this was near the end of August, I guess). I knew it would be a long trip so I wanted to buy some post cards from there to write and send along the way. I clearly remember that even if i was getting sleepy and pehaps I did fall asleep for a while on the train, when I arrived to Monaco you could see it flooded by people because the European Super Cup match between Liverpool and CSKA Moscow was that day! There were supporters from both clubs chanting through the trainstation the British slightly more liquored up than the Russians but I really loved the ambient and the mood they were setting, too bad I couldn't stay for the match.
The third time I remember the most is also football related as some mates and I decided to go watch the Champions League match between Monaco and Betis.
The fourth time I remember the most is when I went, once again, on my own. The main reason i went there is because I wanted to buy another backpack (a Puma-Ferrari one) so I could take as a carry-on for my plane back to Mexico.
