With an extra day with a car after the Italy trip and before heading off to Switzerland, we spontaneously decided to take a day trip to Monaco and Nice, France. Just a few hours drive from Milan, we arrived in Monaco and it was 20 degrees. Monaco is known as the place with the highest GDP per capita, the second smallest and most densely populated country in the world.
After a few hours in Monaco, we quickly made our way to Nice to catch the sunset on the French Riviera. We didn't get much of a chance to explore the city but boy, was the beach beautiful.
