Sightseeing from Verona to Provence

Taking in Portofino, San Remo, and Monaco

sunny 29 °C

We have been on the go for the past few weeks, cramming as much in as possible before our imminent departure. So apologies for the lack of blogging. These are the highlights of our three day journey from Verona to Provence, back in the first week of July.

This is us outside Monte Carlo Casino. The whole place was a bit rich for us.

Q. Where do you park your boat when you’re out at sea?

A. Your boat.

And your helicopter?

And your car?

A. In the nearest disabled spot you can find.

Clare smuggling a cannonball?

We also drove through Portofino.

My advice – don’t bother.

Back in San Remo we headed out for dinner. To our surprise, dad was on the menu:

Upon deciding the gambling was too rich in Monaco, we headed out to the salubrious San Remo casino. We did quite well. Managed to win our money back in no time. (Clare quickly confiscated the necessary chips.) As dinner had now been free we decided to play on with our left over stack. After a little while we thought we’d cut and run. We asked the dealer to cash us in for a $50 euro chip please. He counted it up and did the noble thing and gave us $100.
