Monte Carlo, Monaco home of the glamorous palace Casino De Monte Carlo, with 700 years of Royal history, the gem of Monaco is tucked between the French medieval villages of France and the stunning Alps of Switzerland. Here we sit drinking wine at the famous Café de Paris watching the full moon light up the Mediterranean Sea. I am inspired by the 19th Century architecture of the Grand Casino. In the front lies a beautiful fountain that is surrounded by tall moving palm trees swaying in the sea breeze. The wonderful trance is broken as I hear the engines revving as they like to top off the scenery with the glamorous, most impressive cars in the world lined up in front of the palace. You can almost feel the excitement of the grand prix that runs right through these streets of Monte Carlo.
