    Silly question, but can you drive through Monaco/park up a MoHo for a while in Monaco?

    Will be travelling as part of trip to Italy soon and fancy a drive along southern French Coast before turning for home. Always fancied seeing the place.

    Tight, may be easier to get a train in - public transport is good there. There is a multi-story car park you can get into (well it is Monaco!). We are 2.8m tall and were fine, length may be an issue if you are >>7m

    Yes you can, went three years ago in a converted ldv van , went round some of the race track and along the front, quite a sight among the rollers and Ferraris, couldn't find a park without a height barrier but asked a copper where we could park and he sent us round the back of the casino, and there was plenty on street parking, we parked up and walked into town no problem, but finding the van after took us a while(y)

    We did not park up but Ed just because he could drove the Motorhome around Monaco and as much of the circuit as he could, with a large smile on his face I should add.

    Sorry ,only been to Monaco in hire car . But the public transport in the area is very cheap ....I think it was only €1 from Menton to Monte Carlo when we were there . Unfortunately the Menton Campsite is now only open to Tents and was not all that great when it was open for motorhomes . Many motorhomes stop on the Italian side of the border and from there you can walk into Menton to access bus and rail connections. It is a bit of a hike but worth it.

    We stayed in San remo and just caught the train to most places, but we did Monaco as we were on our way back

    A bit further actually diano marina, and very good camp it was too, can't remember it's name but could find it if anyone needs it, right next to the station, but not noisy and only about 5 min walk to the sea and shops
    Edit
    Actually have found it now http://mobile.campingmarino.it/it/gallery.asp
