Great to have a walk around the port looking at the boats & Yachts, also some great places for a drink or to enjoy a meal.

Whilst luxury boats bob around on the blue Mediterranean waters and the sweet smell of wealth bellows from around the corner in Monaco, Fontvielle is sadly lacking in the glamour from its neighbour. I personally feel that the buildings reaching towards the waters edge are...More

We didn’t actually go down to the port. We appreciated the views of it from upon high. The views were amazing and looked so upscale. I think unless you have a boat or yacht would it actually be beneficial to go down there.

Away from the big harbour round he Corner, Fontvielle is super impressive when viewed from the old town across to the mountains. A cute harbour, with much smaller vessels than the town harbour, well worth seeing from above.

If there is such thing as the poor part of Monaco (there isn't) it's Fontvieille. With it's crystal clear rocky shores teaming with little fish, its picturesce capitanieria, and it's popper sized yachts it's beautiful approachable port. Best walked at sunset or viewed from the...More

You can't really go wrong with any views of a port but this smaller offering in Monaco literally around the corner from the bigger harbour can be readily seen as you walk through the relatively elevated gardens which then allows for better photos to be...More

The smaller port de fontvieille harbours a selection of slightly smaller cruisers to those seen in Port Hercule. That said, there are still some gorgeous vessels moored here. It is also much quieter. Take a stroll and grab some good food in the neighbouring restaurants,...More

Strolled here from the cruise dock as it's the only part of Monaco we'd not previously visited and really enjoyed the peace and quiet compared with the main harbour. There are stunning views of the old town. From the harbour we took the coastal path...More
