NEWS! I've had enough of hiding from COVID and so, from October 11th, I'm back on my travels again, this time attempting an experimental cycle ride from northern England to the south of Spain WITHOUT A MAP OR COMPASS (and not cheating by sticking to the coast or using a previous route or anything). I'll navigate by the sun, if I can see it, and other natural features if I can't (natural features that, erm, I've yet to learn about, but don't worry, I've got a book to teach me along the way). You can find more details on my Primrose-Smith.com site and follow my ride and find out the places I've visited (even if I won't know where those places actually are) on my Europe By Bicycle Facebook page.
This ride's for charity. Samaritans help those who are lost in a different sort of way, an especially useful service for those suffering during these difficult times. If you want to be lovely and donate to them, please visit my JustGiving page.
Cycling in Monaco
Monaco In A Nutshell
Monaco isn't so much a touring option as an oddity to tick off and then escape westwards into lovely Provence or eastwards to the equally attractive Piedmont. Still, if you're impressed by often tacky, conspicuous displays of wealth, you'll love it.
Where and When I Went
24th April 2012
There's a harbour with some big boats in it. Now back on your bike!
Monaco's Road Quality
Stunning. Their tunnels have roundabouts inside. Mental!
Monaco's Accommodation & Costs
Ha! I didn't stop. In 2013, TripAdvisor told me that a night at the Hotel de Paris would cost €522. It'll be more now.
Given its international nature, I'd have thought you'll be alright with English.
France. That's your lot.
Reasons To Go To Monaco
To weep either jealously or at how the 1% choose to splash their cash, to blow a fiver in the casino (better bring a change of clothes).
