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. Plan your visit to Place du Palais and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Monaco-Ville vacation generator.
