Bling-bling

The principality of Monaco has its own railway station. It is hidden well beneath the glamourous outside world, but of course features a healthy dose of bling-bling. Monaco even owns a few trains, easliy distinguished from their SNCF-sisters by their red livery. We used public transport to visit Monaco – not a fancy car.
