Default Monaco Day-Please Comment

Only about 6 weeks until our med cruise! I'm planning Monaco and am looking for any comments or advice.... especially wondering if someone can help me plan the order of our stops in Monaco because I have not got a clue where anything is in relation to anything else. We want to see the Palace, Cathedral, Monte Carlo Casino, walk by the harbor and a nice shopping area and maybe see one of the gardens. How does this sound? I'm hoping to walk the entire route because I hear that the total area of this little country is just 1 mile (just over 2 kms)! Merci beaucoup!

We want to see the Palace, Cathedral,These are on the Monaco side and the narrow littl street are filled with shops and some good restos. Monte Carlo Casino, walk by the harbor and a nice shopping area and These are on the MC side and so are the $$$ shpos as well as some nice shops in the underground mall near the American Casino.You can take the local bus or the little train to get a lay of the land.There is a lot of info on this board re Monaco.maybe see one of the gardensSame side.. How does this sound? I'm hoping to walkThis you can do,but it is teep in some places,but walking down from the Moncao side to the little harbor is really nice.You will find your way around really easy..if not just stop and ask. the entire route because I hear that the total area of this little country is just 1 mile (just over 2 kms)!

cleobella- Monaco is a beautiful DIY port, short distances and easy to walk. With a good map & tourist info obtained from web you can easily find your way around. We were there twice with Oceania/overnite and docked in the harbor along side the many yachts & walked back & forth to the ship.
