Monte Carlo Casino and a Day in Monaco

We began the day with a leisurely breakfast and then strolled around the city exploring the beach, dipping our toes in the mediterranean, and then went to Nice, France for a few hours.

 When we came back we got ready for a night out going to the very chic Yoshi for dinner after visiting the famous (and infamous) Monte Carlo Casino.  The casino was worth visiting just for the history and the architecture given that it was built in the late 1800s and remains much the same today.

 The frescos on the ceilings and the plasterwork even have nods to the casino within them.  Yoshi was a Michelin star Japanese restaurant and everything we ate was beyond compare. The chefs were so friendly and the atmosphere and design were both works of art.  I definitely recommend visiting both Yoshi and the Casino.  Yoshi was connected to our hotel, Hotel Metropole, which makes it a great option if you’re staying there as well!  You can check out my thoughts on Metropole here.
