Monaco is light, color, action. Hills. Down, up, down, up. People, but not too many. Pastels. High rises. Ornate villas. The smell of that green palm plant behind the church in the old town. The sea kayakers. The gardens. The vantage high above the harbor.
Compact, but rich in culture. Glamorous, but inviting. Intriguing. Exotic.
All bathed in the brightest, bright light.
