Stop the World...


Monaco is so small, with many buildings, yet it has so many lovely gardens. This waterfall is in a garden just behind the Heliport in Fontvieille and very near to the Princess Grace Rose Garden. A small bridge crosses this water - a good place to stop and ponder the world when you want to get off it.

I hope not too many people read your lovely comments and see that beautiful waterfall or I am afraid it will be real crowded with us all sitting there contemplating peace and joy.

lovely refreshing photo,

Is this near "La grande laveuse", the sculpture of "The washer"??
When I was there it was contaminated with foam... Someone must have put soap into the water! Not very funny for the fishes...

Barbara, yes, it's the other side of the bridge. I took photos when the water was full of soap suds. Bad news for the ducks and fish.

We stayed in Fontvielle for a week (actually, at the Marriott across the street in Cap d'Ail) and we walked through this area during our one visit to Monaco 8 years ago, but I never saw this spot. Oh well, I guess our absence helped provide the desired solitoude for others.

i agree with you about the gardens. I especially liked the garden walk on the bluff overlooking the sea from the oceanographic institute towards the cathedral.

Idyllic. Found a place like this here as well, this afternoon, 100 meters away from the tourist bustle.
