  • If you are passing in Monaco, he should not miss the meter of the guard at 11:55 but above all be in advance because it can get crowded. It's a real pleasure to see these guards so well dressed, no changing of the guard, and that hard a ten minute.

  • We went here with our tour group. The guards change at 11:55. It only lasts for about 5 minutes. Nothing super special.  more »
  • Historic spectacle in beautiful uniforms. You must have seen the changing of the guard. But yes about the tight chains go on the road, since it is viewed more than evil...

Where to stay in Monaco-Ville

The quiet, pedestrianized streets of Monaco-Ville house many historic buildings, bars, and restaurants, but little by way of accommodations. You can possibly find some apartment rentals in this old center of town, but little else. Most visitors stay up in Monte Carlo, or down in Fontvieille.
