A Monte Carlo Summer - la Gare


Monaco has a fairly new railway station. You can enter from various levels. Here is the view as you come down the escalator from the highest level - we are looking at the harbour from the St. Devote corner.

To get up or down involves escalators and lifts and happily, views like this. I look this standing on the moving escalator so am surprised the view remained pretty much in focus.

This is a fine shot from the railway station. On my recent visit in April, the weather started out sunny and bright but by the time we returned, via this station, to the cruise ship, there was a full blown gale upon us. Oh well, c'est la vie.....

A wonderful combination of artful photography and a view of a place. Really puts me there. Cheers!

What a welcome to Monte Carlo. Most airports or train stations don't offer a million dollar view like this. Good shot on a moving escalator!!

Mai Oui. Not knowing any other way, I have climbed every stair from bottom to the top!
