Place du Palais, Monaco-Ville

(4.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Bordered by colorful mansions, the officers' barracks, and the imposing façade of the Prince’s Palace, Place du Palais offers a glimpse into the history and of Monaco's royal family. Heralded by the blaring of trumpets, the tattoo of drums, and the stamping of feet, the square hosts the daily changing of the guard. Examine cannons and cannonballs from the period of Louis XIV, and admire the geometric designs in the square's multicolored surface.

  • Huge square, with a beautiful panoramic view of Monaco. There is the Palace of the Grimaldi, with your honor guard, their war cannons, and alleys full of souvenirs shops, bars and restaurants.

  • 王宮前面的大廣場 偶而可以看到守衛踢正步換位置 或者是換哨期間 也可以在這周圍看到一些砲台 當然也可以看到竊國的先人像  more »
  • That is the staple of Monaco. Do not miss the changing of the guard every day at 11:45. A bird's eye view of the city and the sea
