It is fun to get a glimpse into the how the Royals live. The square is nice but the palace tour was great. They have portraits of the family going back hundreds of years and the... read more

We were lucky and managed to see the changing of the guards which was cool, the palace itself is very pretty, stunning views of the Monaco and monte Carlo from either side.

A lot of history in this palace. Very historic and beautifully maintained. To think that princess Grace once adorned these walls. The changing of the guard at 11:50 is one of the most impressive ceremonies I have seen. A charming day spent at the palace and grounds.

This is a great audio tour to experience! I loved seeing the beautiful furnishings that looked to be the original pieces of the castle through the years and not just something stuck in there to fill a time slot in history. Well worth the 8 Euros to visit!

Prince's Place is a must see , the tour is supplemented by an included audio guide. The rooms visited are in pristine condition and are furnished exquisitely Cost is 6 Euros with Monaco discount booklet. Be there at 11:55 to see changing of Guard although only small in number nice to see. The best 6 Euros in Monaco

We booked a tour that included the Prince's Palace while on a cruise and it was one of the highlights we enjoyed the most. It is not Buckingham Palace in size, pomp and splendor(though It did have a mini changing of the guard). However, the impeccably groomed grounds, panoramic views, the well preserved historic rooms, the burial places of Princess... More

When in Monaco, just go there! From there you can see all you need to and it's close to the ocean museum. It's also sorrounded by nice parks and gardens.

This area was easy easy to walk up to and was so beautiful when you reached the top. The area was very clean and pristine and the guards in their sentry boxes were very smart. To walk round this palace was so lovely and peaceful. There is a small eating place here. There is an old quarter where you can... More

The palace is pretty from the outside but the interior is spectacular. When visiting Monaco you should not miss a visit to the palace. The tour takes about an hour with an audio guide provided.
