It's located on top of the main hill with lots of stairs leading up. But believe me - it's worth climbing up. The architechture is great and the watching the guards in front of it is a strange experience. Another very impressive thing about the palace is the view you have to the city and to the ocean.

A great experience. There is no queue if you would like a tour of the palace and you are given an audio guide which you can listen to at your own pace, it also means you can repeat things you missed. The tour is short but you get so much information, would only take about an hour to an hour... More

Absolutely breathtaking!!! You have to go and visit this, try and catch the changing of the guard if you can. You can stroll around the square and do just about anything, definitely do it!

The Palace Square is the highlight of the old quarter and the highlight of the square is the palace. A beautiful multi building and era facility dominates the square and is the center. If you don't have much time, make it a priority to at least visit the square and see the palace. I love the coat of arms and... More

There's no queue and you receive an audio guide so you can do the tour at your own pace. It brings you around some of the rooms telling you the history of the room and pointing out important furnishings and items. The staff/security were friendly. Sadly no photos were permitted and you could only visit a small portion of the... More

Building is beautiful but I was disappointed with the tour as you only see a fraction of the palace cost was €8 no queue and staff were friendly.

The Self paced tour with audio guides is worth doing. The tour will take approximately one hour and takes you through one wing of the palace. The audio provides a detailed description of the rooms and its contents. Worth doing tour but no photos allowed.

It was quick to get in, with friendly and helpful security staff. The visit was guided by a personal headset, with an easy to understand / informative dialogue. Most of the rooms were very interesting. Good value for money.

An amazing place to be. Seize the opportunity to visit palace inside which is wonderful and very elegant. If you can afford it pay a double ticket of nineteen (19) euros both for palace (5 euros) and oceanographic museum (14 euros)

Although one of the best audio tours, only a fraction of the palace is opened to public. Its okay if you want to visit the palace while you are in Monaco, but not something I would recommend to travel miles for. P.S.: Students, please do take you ID cards as you get 50% discount.
