As you're staying near the airport, I would recommend taking the airport express bus, which will save a lot of time. It also runs in the evening for your return. Current timetable and prices are on www.niceairportxpress.com.

When you board, ask the driver to drop you at the Jardin Exotique as you enter Monaco. Take in the views (and visit the gardens if so inclined) then pick up bus number 2 from the same spot. This same bus will take you to the Casino, the port and terminates on the Rocher. Buy a EUR5 unlimited use day ticket and you can use the No 2 as your own hop-on, hop-off bus.

If you finish your sightseeing on the Rocher - lots to see up there and lovely views over the port - walk down the Rampe Major from the Place du Palais or return on Bus 2 or 1 as far as the Place d'Armes below, where you can pick up the Airport Express bus for your return.

You can fit all this into a couple of hours without too much trouble.
