Today we have a tour booked so its an earlyish start to the day. We were picked up at 9 and headed off to pick up the rest of the small tour group, which included another 2 Aussies on their honeymoon from Canberra, 2 Americans from Arizona and an old French couple. We made our way north to Monaco stopping at a little medieval village called Eze, was such an astounding drive on the way there, lots of cliff villages and sparkling blue waters. Eze itself was such a beautiful quaint little cliff top village, it had been built into the side of the rock wall and was not accessible until recent times (early 1900's). We had a short photo stop there and then made our way onto Monaco, once there he took us on part of the F1 circuit and to the worlds first legal Casino. Monaco is a principality all unto itself it is the second smallest country in the world. The casino wasn't open but we got to have a look at the outside and saw a Lamborghini parked out the front which I got to have a sticky beak inside it. It was time to move onto the Grimaldi palace, former home of Princess Grace and her current resting place. We got there just in time for the changing of the guard. I don't know how those blokes keep a straight face with all the drumming and marching etc etc lots of hoo haa for nothing really, imagine if we all did that when we changed our working shift lol. The palace itself was nothing spectacular but it was in an amazing spot right on the cliffs and had a gorgeous garden and view of the township. It was sad to see princess graces grave but was nice to see her beside her husband after so many years apart. After spending an hour wondering around the gardens and palace it was time to head to St. Paul after dropping the French couple back at nice. St Paul is another medieval town but its set back from the water, it was used to hold the surrounding areas money so it was kept safe for this reason and is perfectly preserved. It was so amazing walking these small alleyways and cobbled streets thinking back to all those years ago. Quite an amazing and beautiful spot. We then headed back to the water to visit Cannes, I wasn't as impressed with Cannes as much as Nice, it was good to see it but where they hold the film festival is certainly nothing special. We got to see some famous handprints eg Angelina Jolie, Gregory Peck, Nicole Kidman etc. I guess it's a talking point that I've been there but I'm glad we chose to stay at Nice. We then went onto our last stop of the day which was Antibe, now Antibe is the last town that 150years ago was French, so it was fortified to protect it from the Italians and then when the Italians gave Nice to France the fortifications were no longer needed and they went to ruin. The ones near the water are still well maintained and form a beautiful part of the busiest marina in Europe which houses some of the worlds mega yachts on their visits. A really nice spot. Well that was the end of a long day but a really good one. Back to the hotel and to find somewhere to eat. I was craving some seafood so we headed towards the beach and found a lovely little Italian restaurant where Trent had a massive pizza with chicken, mushrooms, ham, creme fraiche and cheese and I had the seafood spaghetti which had mussels, clams, prawns and fish in it and it was so yum. End of a big day and time for bed. Off to Geneva or Milano tomorrow.
