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!

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.
