Title: The Hercule port |Monte Carlo | Monaco


User's Notes:
The marina in Monte Carlo is one of the area's highlights! Whether you just enjoy the view or have a chance to go up one of the yachts, there is something relaxing and calm in the experience. You can think of how great it would be to sail into the sea, even if just in your imagination:-)

User Selected Text:
Hercules Port is a natural bay at the foot of the ancestral rock of the princes of Monaco.It is one of the few, if not the only deep-water port of the French Riviera.<br /> It was used as a trading port by the Greeks and Romans but had the disadvantage of being poorly sheltered from the easterly winds. This prompted the erection of two piers in the early twentieth century which went some way to providing better protection.
