Vieux Monaco, Monaco-Ville

Categories: Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
With narrow, winding streets virtually unchanged since medieval times, Vieux Monaco, the city's Old Town, encompasses many of Monaco's most famous and historical attractions. Variously known as Le Rocher, the Rock, and originally Monoikos, the Old Town dates back to the 6th century, when it was colonized by the Phocaeans. Wander steep, quiet streets that are too narrow for modern vehicles, and take in the views from this vantage point above the sea. Containing Palais Princier, Saint Nicholas Cathedral, Oceanographic Museum, Chapelle de la Misericorde, and Fort Antoine Theatre, the Old Town offers a chance to explore the city's history within a setting of medieval beauty. Be sure to wear flat, comfortable shoes, as the streets are steep, and it's quite a climb.

  • We had lot of fun walking through the old town, 10 minutes walk from the train station. There are shuttles bus which avoids the rise on the rock! But if you prefer option walk, the climb allows to discover the views of the lower town and the port and the arrival on the Central esplanade fortifications, we discover the Palace prncier then you can get "lost" in the prettiest streets each others

  • The most typical and monumental area of town, with squares with monuments, but also narrow streets full of charm, of shops and catering. The descent of the Palace to the port is a journey full of charm and fantastic views.
