Bond…James Bond. Visiting a world famous casino in Monaco

Monaco is one of those cities where it is so fabulous you don’t feel like you belong. You think to yourself, do people really live here? It is remarkably beautiful, the money is always flowing, and the setting is magical. In the picture below, this is one of the casinos. It is not an American type casino in the same way- very few games to play and there is an entrance fee of somewhere around 10 Euro. There are no photos allowed inside, but you can see people snapping them on their phones. There is a high roller room in the back but that wasn’t our style 😉
