Jardin Exotique - Le Rocher and Fontvieille


We are looking out from the Jardin Exotique, looking at le Rocher (the Rock) on the left. Le Rocher is also known as Monaco-Ville and is the oldest part of Monaco - here you find the Palace, the Cathedral and the Oceanographic museum.

On the right, you see part of Fontvieille and its small port. Fontvieille with its modern buildings is on land reclaimed from the sea. The main port - Port Hercule - is on the other side of Le Rocher.

Looks like the Monaco we've all seen on the tv. Perhaps I'll be able to see it in the flesh sometime soon.

Extraordinary view of this marina and the sea looks calm and magnificent!

Wow, very nice view! Must be great to have that as a view when you look out the window.

Wow! Amazing view!

This has obviously been a natural haven for centuries. The setting is incredibly spectacular. But so much of it is man-made now, it's a bit frightening.

What a beautiful shot, as usual.

Absolutely incredible. Frame it and hang it!

C'est magnifique Monaco. J'y ai fait une chute il y a quelques années et je me suis retrouvée à l'hopital "Princesse Grace" où j'ai tout de suite été soignée. Malgrè cela (c'était au début de mes vacances pendant le festival de Cannes) j'en garde un très bon souvenir et j'espère y retourner un jour.
