Speaking of Monte Cristo….Château d’If, the fortress and prison where the fictional Edmond Dantès was imprisoned in Alexandre Dumas’ novel The Counte of Monte Cristo. It was interesting to go by and learn more about the history of the fortress and the actual prisoners that were housed there. There are two cells named after Edmond Dantès and Abbé Faria which actually had the tunnel going between the two rooms! I don’t know about you, but it was really exciting for a nerd like me 🙂
