23 Hours in Monaco: Walking in the Rain

16 02 2014

The rain got worse as the afternoon progressed on my one-day visit to Monaco.  I was, however, undeterred and kept going in the rain.  The way Monte Carlo is structured kind of helps even in bad weather.  The train station, for example, though would appear rather complicated for a first-time visitor, is built on a cliff and is split into many levels connecting streets at the top, middle, and the bottom of the cliff with platforms, passages, elevators, and escalators.

You have to know on which platform to walk in order to get to the right exit at the other end.

After I left the station, I went to the palace ground to have lunch and walk around the old town of Monaco.  By the time I came down from Le Rocher/The Rock on which the neighborhood stands, my feet were soaking wet I just had to change into something else.

Heavily reduced prices, too.
