An afternoon in Monaco

Returning Home....

The day after, we returned to Monaco.

From Mónaco


After the lunch at Cafe de Paris, we went for a stroll in the surroundings.

We went by these beautiful stairs....

From Mónaco


to the harbour...

From Mónaco


to enjoy the gorgeous view of the Mediterranean Sea...

From Mónaco


see the boats...

(No, it wasn't Love Boat...;-)

From Mónaco


(Yes, I became "in love" for this one...;-)

From Mónaco


and, finally, the luxuriant gardens ...

I enjoyed your afternoon in Monaco :-) Especially since it's grey and rainy here in England. What did you eat at Cafe de Paris, please?

Dear Japra,

I regret I didn't take a picture because it was such a beautiful and delicious salade!! It was a daily special. It isn't in their site menu kaart. It was with cheese, figs (I love it!) and vegetables.

Huuum, Margarida, In the next stop, I was looking for George Clooney, but I didn't find him, Well, I'm sure he was nearby...;-))) We must keep the hope !!!

Hallo, Arwa

Thank's for your nice comment! Well, I have so much to learn yet ;-)
Yes, I enjoyed Monaco! The light and the sea!! Wonderful! Beautiful, beautiful gardens!
I need to come back to see the Palace and the Cathedral.

Fotos fantásticas...e que saudade.
O sol e os jardins são inebriantes, o Casino é lindo, a curva intemporalizada pelos ralies, tudo fantástico. Já fui há uns anitos, não me lembro do nome do hotel, em Nice. Na época não escrevia alguns detalhes que agora aprecio.Tive imensa pena de não visitar o Museu de Chagall, este ano era para voltar a Nice para ver Chagall e ir até à praia mas surgiu a viagem a Budapeste que não conhecia.
Visitei a casa de Matisse. Vim deslumbrada... O Mónaco foi mesmo o que mais gostei. :)
Obrigada!

Chagall...gosto muito! Gostava de visitar o Museu tambem ;-) Bem lembrado, bem lembrado...
Beijinhos ;-)

Sara said...

Belas viagens e belas fotografias! Numa altura em que o Outono já se instala por cá, sabe bem apreciar locais e momentos ainda plenos de Verão.

Um abraço!

Sara, isto hoje por aqui esta assustador. Grandes trovoadas e chuva a cantaros...
Beijinhos!

Oh la la, you are at our most favourite spot: the Cote d'Azur. When I close my eyes I can recall clearly the view we had from the house where we stayed several times overlooking the Bay of St Tropez. We used to say to our dog: Tu est le chien le plus sage de St Tropez. Any place along the coast is so marvellous.
Thank you for joining my blog! On return I am your number 80 and I am intrigued by the long list of Dutch events you have listed. So, I will be reading a while ;-)).
Have a wonderful day!
Jacoba

PS Make sure that you go back to my blog as the link to the museum is now working. Also, Sypesteyn holds a nice autumn programme if it is not too far away from you!

Olá Sandra, que fotos maravilhosas, infelizmente não conheço o Mónaco, mas está na minha lista de locais que gostaria de visitar.

Beijinhos

Sandra,
I think that Monaco is an elegant, smart and "chic" city. The gardens, the buildings, the sea, the boats, all is really beautiful and perfect!!!
Again, the photos are very beautiful!!!!
Beijinhos!!!!!!!
