The audio guide is thorough, if a little long. Definitely recommend a visit. Get the joint ticket with the oceanographique museum

The square is not very big but is a big attraction. There are lots of shops and restaurants down these small corridors. It's great!! You get a wonderful marina view from the palace square. Had the pleasure of seeing the "changing of the guards". It's not as extravagant as in London but it is nice to see and experience. I... More

he view is beautiful. The tour is not long but quite interesting with an audio guide suitable with most European languages. However, it's not really an activity for kids. It is the sightseeing spot to go to in Monaco.

The palace has a great view of the marina and essentially most of Monaco, so even if you don't take a tour of the palace it's a great place to take good pictures. It's very clean and the tour of a palace isn't too expensive, but it's pretty short, so in hindsight, I can see why it's that way. The... More

At very first I need to apologize for not being able to get inside of the palace due to the time I was there (already too late). Still and without having visited the inside of the Palace, I can fully recommend to be there - stand in front of it, wait till the night falls and the lights illuminate the... More

Worth a trip to see, the streets to go through to get to the palace are beautiful, the shops very ornate, and the chocolatier is definitely worth a visit

The highlight of Monaco for us was to visit this palace and let the history seep in. We had a commentary via headphones and followed the set route. No photos are allowed inside you have to consign everything to memory, but in a way it was nice not to have cameras poking everywhere. The state rooms with the location of... More

What a beautiful place to visit. Whenever our friends come to visit, they always want to see Monaco and the royal palace. We went this week at dusk and it's actually quite magical to watch the sunset in the grounds. If you can get there to watch he changing of the guard it's well worth a visit. Truly beautiful

Loved the view from here over monaco. Enjoyed the village streets with quirky shops and restaurants. It was very crowded at change of guard and didn't see much but wasn't disappointed.

Audio guided tour around part of the palace detailing the history of each room which is interesting. The audio guide kept our five year old very interested. Enjoyed the tour and very reasonable price.
