The Palace Guards, Monaco-Ville

(3.4/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
For a charming display of pomp and ceremony, visit The Palace Guards. The guards protect the entrance to the Prince's Palace, where the royal family of Monaco still resides today. During the changing of the guard, you can watch the white-clad guards showcase their rifles in a talented display of military pageantry. Listen for the sounds of the drums and trumpets approaching, and appreciate the regularity of the guards' spacing and marching in perfect order.
