A great photo of old Monaco!
In addition to the extensive ferry schedule to Corsica and Sardinia, the port of Nice offers regularly scheduled day trips by boat from Nice to St. Tropez, Cannes and Monaco. The boat takes you there early in the morning and returns late in the afternoon, leaving you a full day of leisurely touring at your destination. Getting to Monaco along the coast on the no 100 bus (which runs very frequently) would have been a very scenic way to do it, taking the train would have been highly speedy, comfortable and efficient but lackluster, using a car would have been unnecessarily stressful, and finally taking the helicopter would have been extravagant and probably would have ruined me. So we decided to take the boat to Monaco and make an entrance through the Mediterranean sea. As the boat captain later humbly admitted on the loudspeaker system, we made the only intelligent choice.
