First stop is the Cathédrale de Monaco where all the Royal weddings etc have taken place, the most recent, a year ago, the marriage between Prince Albert and Princess Charlene. I watched their wedding on tv, so it was wonderful to see the Cathedral, the steps, roads, etc in real life ! 🙂

Memorial of Francois Grimaldi guised as a monk with a sword under his frock, walked through the gates, and siezed the Rock of Monaco in 1297 – from that time on, the Principality of Monaco was ruled by the Grimaldi family
Cannon ball sculptures ..
Magnificent view from there …
Part of Grand Prix circuit is where the red and white barriers are placed – a go-karting circuit for now ..
