Sailing the Italian riviera

So 30th July we departed Valletta for Monaco and arrived there on the 1st August early morning and were kept busy by provisions and last minute setups. We moored in the corner next to the cruise line jetty next to Niarchos m/y Atlantis II.

We did not tarry long here either and left the same day for Bonifacio where we arrived on the 6th. At Bonifacio we anchored for the day to admire the stairs and the fortifications from times gone by.
