The Contiki European Encounter

Day 13
 7 August

By now I am used to spending all day in the bus.  We left Florence early so that we could get to Nice as early as possible.  We stopped in Pisa to see the leaning tower and arrived in Nice about 4 pm.  We drove past the pebbly beach and had an hour to change before heading to Monaco for a look at the Palace and a dinner where I tried quiche for the first time and Dave tried duck pate.  After dinner we headed over to the old Lowe's casino where I lost $100 playing blackjack in a matter of 10 minutes and another $20 lost on the slots!  But it was certainly an experience to gamble in Monaco and to see the Ferraris parked in front of the hotel. At night we had a beer and 2 small pizzas at a little bar near the hotel before heading to bed.
