Architectural Building Landmark
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.

  • The Palace is beautiful but the audio guides that they give you are out of date, really. You have to hold them by your ear and you have no choice of speeding it up. Also, be careful not to wear anything too revealing or you might not be allowed to enter. Filming is prohibited inside.
  • Great view to the city and the port. Nice local shops and restaurants around the palace. You can get there either walking up from the train station or better just take a bus from the city's transportation system.
  • Monaco is all about great views, luxury and great weather and this is the perfect example of it. If you are a lady make sure you bring your nicest most comfortable shoes for the all the walking you'll be doing.
  • If you are planning to visit Monaco then i must suggest you to go at Prince's Palace of monaco. That place is boy just wonderful by it's architecture design but it have really historical value.
  • Nice Palace with a stunning view over Monte Carlo.
