  • For only 5 minutes you can see the changing of the Palace Guard. Dressed in white, the guards present a simple yet traditional ceremony. The time of return is 11.55 pm. Arrive early and save your place, as there are many tourists at the site.

  • A low key show of a military tradition, but one worth seeing. As lots of reviews say it's not like the Buck Pal equivalent, but still good. Timing great and in perfect sync with the bells chiming. Be ...  more »
  • The statement starts at 11:55 daily and lasts a little less than a half hour. Uniforms are original. The choreography is much lower, but it still produces its effect. It's free and fun, even if the show is very structured. You can buy corresponding gadgets in the Monegasque shops.
