Sea and rich people: where else to find a better combination than in Monaco! A real Monaco yachts parade can be admired throughout the year in the Hercule Port, beside the local yearly yachting events. From imposing, big-sized ones to neat, small, jewel yachts.

And remember, you are following a royal route; the pharaohs and Queen Cleopatra cruised the Nile!
