With the team of television Novi Sad I was the guest statelet Monaco. We recorded TV movie about this country, which, in the splendor, for centuries there is the territorial environment of France. For a tour of the Palace where they live Grimaldi - rulers of Monaco, and, of course, and Monte Carlo, we chose one of the very last... More

What a wonderful experience. The military band played "Uptown funk" and Katy Perry's "Fireworks" as part of the guard change. Well worth watching.

Facade has a pink glow at night and there's a tremendous view. The palace is set in the upper part of the ville. The Changing of the Guards offers a great photo opportunity. Amazing views down to the sea and marina. Lovely tour of the Palace with audio for only 8 euros. The walk up the hill is pleasant and... More

The audio guide gets you around the palace at a fair old lick . It was interesting to see the interior of the palace and the price was reasonable [we had a combined aquarium/palace ticket.]

The trip to Monaco is worth it for the views and walking in the quaint town. The palace tour was not all that impressive. Yes, there is history facts in the rooms they allow the public to see but what lacked was a true sharing of the era of Princess Grace and her Prince. A few paintings and busts are... More

It is a long walk up the hill but if you get the combined ocean museum and palace ticket it is quite resonable. You can see the usual pomp and ceromany with changing of the guard at certain times. Great views down to the coasts. Only certain areas are open to view, guessing the prince does not want you bursting... More

€8 per person lets you into this self guided tour of the monaco palace and we enjoyed it. You can self pace it which is a great benefit as some things interest varios people more or less. We really enjoyed it and would recommend same to anyone with an hour or two to spare
