We found the tour with the audio guides very interesting, without them we would have just been looking at the various rooms without knowing their history. I must admit I tend normally to skip some of the commentary but the guide is provided well with reference to what events had or do occur in each room visited. The only downsides... More

Gorgeous place to visit, and very good value at €8.00 per adult. Very informative with just enough information. the grandeur of the Throne Room is spectacular. Palace was busy, but they were well able to cater with the crowds

If your around the palace at 12 noon choose a spot near the front and watch the changing of the guard. The Palace inside is okay, but I wouldn't visit is again. The views over Monte Carlo from the Palace walls is definitely worth the walk up the hill.

We walked from the harbour in Monte Carlo up the hillside and through well kept gardens to the Palace. The shade from the trees as we wound our way up the steps and pathways was welcome in the July heat! Once at the top, there are a selection of shops and places to grab a bite to eat and drink....

Enjoyed touring the palace and learning about this small and unique kingdom. We all loved seeing the ornate rooms and furniture.

We watched the changing of the guard outside the palace. It was quite short and nicely done, but the thousands of other tourists overwhelmed it, and like the changing of the guard in London it wasn't particularly special. Only worth it if you want to be able to say you've done it.

Historical, interesting, the 8 Euro entry fee is worth it. Audio guides are used within the palace to guide you through the history which was great. Great views across the harbour too. Quieter in early to mid morning. After mid morning and in the afternoon it gets extremely busy

We hopped on a train to Monaco Ville. It was just more or less half hour trip from Nice, France where we were based for a week. Fascinating country. So small and yet so rich. Sports car and trendy stores are in sight everywhere. My hubby and I were in such awe. Little cafeterias are discretely tucked in. We took... More

Love the palace. It's so beautiful and great to photograph day or night After a late night movie at the outdoor cinema we took a wander to the palace to show our friends. Was a bit chaotic as some stages had been erected for the 10th anniversary celebrations the next day. Still magical and the trees were all illuminated red... More
