From Saint-Tropez I travel with my camera to Monaco to show you the beauty of this little principality which is known of the glitter and glamour and the Grimaldi’s. I am dreaming in Monaco of the beautiful views, the old town, and the unique atmosphere.
Dreaming in Monaco
I think I visited Monaco six times in my whole life and each time it is different. It is not a place which I want to visit each time I am on the French Riviera. There a lot of beautiful other places which are higher on the bucket list.
