The way in

The entrance to the small harbour of Fontvieille. You can see another photograph of this harbour, posted a couple of days ago - HERE. The rocks on the left are part of Le Rocher, the oldest part of Monaco where you'll find the Palace, the Cathedral, the Oceanographic Museum and beautiful old streets.

Oh, that water looks just so impossibly blue and sparkly! Very inviting.

Isabella, it's so blue, isn't it? But yes, that's how it is. Only thing I would say is that if I take pics around midday there is a hardness to the colour - as in this photo. I didn't change any colour tho - in fact I tried to lighten it just a little.

What a view!

What is that little fort like building in the centre ?

The building in the centre is the Capitanerie, which is where the yacht owners go to arrange their berthing. Thanks to my friend Laura - a mine of information on Monaco - for telling me this.
