After a few days in Barcelona, we jumped on a Celebrity Cruise — our first stop was Nice, France.
Such an adorable little city! We also visited the medieval hilltop town of Eze…
And then it was on to Monaco – where we walked part of the route of the Grand Prix
(The world famous Monaco Grand Prix was just a few days before we arrived, so we got to see all the guard rails and street markings for the race!)
You can’t be in Monaco without pretending you are James Bond and visiting the world famous
Monte Carlo Casino. (Matt played a few slot machines and doubled his money! How cool is that?)
We also visited the Palace of Monaco and watched the changing of the guards….
After a full day ashore, we ventured back to our ship and awoke in a new city: FLORENCE!
We said hi to Michelangelo’s statue of David…
And enjoyed a beautiful walking tour of Florence – with it’s 14th century basilica as the center point…
We enjoyed an amazing lunch in a wine cellar….
of Wild Boar and Homemade Pasta. (delish)
Alright, I’ll give you three guesses to the town we visited after lunch…
