Prince's Palace (Palais du Prince), Monaco-Ville

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Take an audio tour of Prince's Palace (Palais du Prince), occupied for more than 700 years by the ruling Grimaldi family. Built on the site of an 1191 Genoese fortress, the palace is still well fortified--it was frequently besieged over the centuries by Monaco’s larger and more powerful neighbors. Imposing from the outside, the royal family's only residence also displays wealth and opulence in its interior, furnished in the style of Louis XIV. Explore the state apartments, where you can see intricately painted 16th-century frescoes of mythological figures, and see the throne, draped with a red velvet awning and topped by the crown. The palace is only open to the public for a few months a year, so check the website for details.

  • Members of the Royal family during a vacation, purchasing tickets for the Heavenly Palace and parts within. When I saw the brunt of Royal buildings on the left side of the building to sell tickets separately. Souvenirs that went into building the Royal Palace admission tickets, or the Royal Palace + car Museum/Royal + Maritime Museum after buying a ticket, such as the Royal Palace at the entrance to the position on the left of the line. After passing through the search for a free audio guide rental, Korean and English. The Royal Palace, photos, recording, cell phones are all disabled.

  • Beautiful surroundings and beautiful views over the port and where the formula 1 driven word. You should also watch the changing of the guard every hour.

  • Neat palace. In my opinion is the view over the city more impressing however.
  • While visiting the aquarium they asked us if we wanted to visit it just adding 50 cents more. We accepted and the visit in this palace was great. A lot of things to see and the audio guide explain a lot of information. If you are lucky you can also see the change of the guard which is beatiful to see.
  • Very nice tour of the castle but rather short. I understand that it is an active residence, but from the outside I have to admit that I would have expected the tour to last longer. Other than that, the explanation headset is very good, giving loads of information. The only downside is that you can't take any pictures while inside the palace.
  • FANTASTIC!Tre Tre Tre Bon!!!PERFECT⭐️ However, the country is noisy fuel-poor cars and full of bikes. If high interest imperial family in environmental issues, as well as we need even if a lot of money for the imperial family maintenance, may be set to electric cars and electric bikes can not run only country. The city is wonderful beautiful scenery, but Values are old, stress full disappointed country.
  • One of the most beautiful views I've ever gotten was on top of this hill.
