The plaza is beautiful and you can stop by and see the royal guards making their movements. After that, take a deep breath and go see the view of the city from both sides of the plaza. Simply AMAZING! I can’t describe it with words!

This is a lovely square bordered by the Prince's Palace, the military barracks, and other beautiful buildings. The square is high up so views of Monaco below are wonderful.

very much value for money and enjoyed the tour complete with hand held audio guide. Well worth the entrance fee but disappointed the car collection museum is not here but located down the hill in the city.

A downer for us is that photography is not permitted. The rooms are so elegant and impressive, it takes more than a tour to digest it all. The sumptuous fabrics on the walls and ornately detailed furnishings are in the style of Louis the XIV...More

We visited the area and visited the Prince’s Palace. We tried to go inside but apparently you can only see the exterior. I should have figured that when we saw the palace guards. It’s a decent looking building but thought it would be more ornate...More

You can buy it on the day. Please buy the combined ticket which is for the palace and Oceanography museum. Some rooms are usually being restored so you see only a small section and it is quite a quick walk through but... More
