We had a wonderful day in Nice, complete with tubing on the Med and a walk down memory lane with Maren, but it was back on the bus with our driver, Salvatore, and tour guide, Richard, as we headed to Monaco for a part of the day and then continued on into Italy and the start of a two-night stay in Como.

On the way out of Nice, we stopped at an overlook and saw the most AMAZING view of Nice and the Mediterranean Sea. The team stopped for a quick pic and then it was off to Monaco. After a winding and twisting ride, we finally arrived to a beautiful seaside city-state with some huge yachts and breathtaking views.
We spent a few hours in Monaco, shopping, eating, snapping photos and watching the guards in front of the palace. It was a really great place to stop, even if it was just for a few hours.
Back on the bus we went for the four hour jaunt to Como, Italy, where we will spend the next two nights. Como is named after the lake that it sits on. We didn't have a whole lot of daylight to sightsee Como (that is on tomorrow's agenda), but we did get some great dinner and gelato for dessert.
Tomorrow will bring a bus and boat tour of Como and our second game of the tour against the Italian All Stars.
