We then headed up the steep incline to reach Le Roche (The Rock). This is the small area of Monaco that is restricted unless you have Monaco plates or local French plates on your car. Up here you will find the Exotic Gardens, the Oceanography Museum, and the Princely home of the Grimaldis. This area has very narrow streets and little shops tucked in all over. We walked around this area, visiting gifts shops and taking pictures before heading up to the gardens. We watched the sun set behind the hills and mountains around Monaco.
Coming down was much easier than coming up. On the way down we stopped to admire the city again - since nightfall there were thousands of lights everywhere. We could see the famous Monte-Carlo casino off in the distance.
