Heralded by the blaring of trumpets, the tattoo of drums, and the stamping of feet, the square hosts the daily changing of the guard.

  • After parking our car in the city centre, we walked along the corniche, strolling through the "Japanese" garden then mounted to the rock of the Palace by the gardens which are beautiful and offer beautiful panoramas. If one goes to Monaco it is essential to discover the Palace and its place, the view is magnificent. We have unfortunately not had time to visit inside. Externally it is already very beautiful. I imagined this great Palace. We had a very good time.
