Riviera Lectures: Monaco (part 2)

Thursday, December 8 from 2:00 – 3:30pm online via Zoom

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Pamela Morton to lead this two-part series on the spectacular stretch of coastline situated between the Maures mountains to the west and the Alps to the east. This talk will focus on Monaco, a miniscule sovereign state near the Italian border, which has long been a dream destination for visitors. Known for its glitzy glamour, gambling, and wealthy tax-dodgers, this “jewel of the Mediterranean,” in addition to yearlong sunshine and mild climate, boasts a spectacular seaside setting offering stunning panoramic views from its rocky cliffs. Add to the mix the intrigue involving a few swashbuckling monks and the high-profile marriage of a Monaco prince to a Hollywood star (Grace Kelly) and you have the elements for a lively tale of romance and adventure. This second lecture explores the sites and history of this fabled principality including a look at its oceanographic museum and casino as well as its richly decorated palace. Registration is $18 per person.
