Here’s some photos from one of the Most Expensive Countries in the World – Monte Carlo ( also called Monaco). It’s famous for street Formula 1 Race, Expensive Cars, World Famous Casino, High End Fashion shops and beautiful location.

I spend about 4 hours in Monaco. It takes about 30 minutes drive from Nice to Monaco by bus.  No separate visa is required if you already have France Tourist Visa ( Schengan Visa).

1. It’s a beautiful Day in Monaco. People are going for a jog in Mid-Afternoon.
