More Monaco cards

No cards today again :( Only 1 card this week!!! Better luck for next one.
No cards in my mailbox but i still have a lot of cards in my postcard box. Today we've more 2 Monaco cards.

This is a view of the port and the palace. Is amazing the quantity of yachts at the port, i think some of them are bigger than my house :P

An aerial view with the Stade Louis II stadium. "It serves as a venue for both football, being the home of AS Monaco as well as the location of the annual UEFA Super Cup match, and athletics, where it plays host to the IAAF World Athletics Final.
The original Stade Louis II was opened in 1939 as the home of AS Monaco. The new stadium was built in the early 1980s, close to the site of the old stadium on land reclaimed from the sea, opening fully in 1985. It presently has a capacity of approximately 18,500 all seated, which is quite large relative to the population of Monaco (ca.32,000), making it possible to fit around 60% of the country's population, making Monaco the only country capable of such thing. The Stadium is named after Louis II, Prince of Monaco, who was the Sovereign Prince of Monaco when the original stadium was built. It features prominently in the early versions of Pro Evolution Soccer." - in:
