The memory of a trip to Monaco (part 1)

In travel plans, a visit to the state of Monaco was not made in advance. But, since these places were nearby, we decided to visit as many attractions in the district as possible.

After the death of Honore V, power passed to his brother, Florestan I (1841–1856), a great admirer of literature and theater, completely unprepared for government. Continue reading
