Took a day trip from Nice to visit this beautiful Cathedral and was glad that I did. It is very beautiful outside and when you enter, it is very peaceful and serene. It is tastefully decorated with lots of beautiful stained glasses and other religious artefacts. You can view the tombs of Royalty that have passed away as well. The... More

A lovely building full of history. The graves of the royal family are interesting and everyone crushes to see Grace of Monaco which is easy to spot with the pretty flowers on it. The stained glass and side chapels are amazing. Please take just fifteen minutes to visit, it is worth it and FREE!

this was part of our tour of Monaco & Monte Carlo on a trip from our cruise ship moored off Villefranche, we came to Monaco on the train, which was far cheaper than the ships arranged tours! The railway station in Monaco is below the city and a vast curved cavern of a place... There is a policeman to every... More

The cathedral was really nice and well kept, but didn't have the history of many other cathedral you would find in France. If you are interested in seeing the resting place to the royalty of Monaco and Grace Kelly, then it's worth a visit. It's close to the aquarium, so you can knock out both in one afternoon.

Lovely cathedral. Highlight is Grace Kelly's tomb - me and my mom are huge fans. A lot of people do miss her tomb since there are no guides inside the cathedral. Just make sure you go past beyond the altar, on the floor, it's the one marked Gratia Patricia - usually with lots of flowers on it.

Really enjoyed walking around the cathedral. Good to get away from the touristy side of Monaco and walk around. Very tranquil and beautiful.

If you're in the old town, don't miss visiting the cathedral. Princess Grace & Prince Rainier III have their resting place here. The architecture and decoration are impressive. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

An imposing and impressive building where Princess Grace was married and is buried, as it would seem are are all the Grimaldi/Ranier royalty. Fabulous architecture with several alcove alters for many a saint and it was quite moving to be able to look on the final resting place of Princess Grace. I was very taken with the marble floor under... More

It was very moving and somewhat saddening seeing the final resting place of Princess Grace and her Prince.
