Information about ports/marinas

Hi everybody,

I would like to initiate a new topic for all the poor soules out there (like me) who only know about e.g. the IYCA and Monaco from pictures and hearsay.

My idea would be to gather some information on how to best arrive at the ports/marinas, how to get best access, which time of day is best to go, where to park the car and all this kind of stuff that helps ignorant yachtspotters to enjoy a stress-free first-time visit to the world's yachting hot-spots.

I would really enjoy comments of our well-experienced and highly-regarded yachtspotters out there.

Maybe we can start with IYCA, St. Tropez, Nice, Monaco ...

Thanks to everybody in advance!
