Mediterranean cruise 2006 - Villefranche (Nice)

In this port we took an excursion to Monaco and Monte Carlo.
There were gorgeous gardens in Monaco. I don't have nearly the green thumb needed to have this kind of garden in my backyard.This is the palace. The flag was raised which should have meant that the prince was home; however, the tour guide said that he was very lax about that tradition so no one really knows if he's in residence or not.This is the cathedral in Monaco where Princess Grace and Prince Rainier were married. It was much smaller than it appeared on TV.

Princess Grace's grave inside the cathedral. Her grave marker is written in Latin.
And the casino -- while I would have loved to go play in there something tells me that I wouldn't be able to afford the cheapest blackjack table.
