Vieux Monaco, Monaco-Ville

4.4
#4 of 6 in Historic Sites in Monaco
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.

  • The most beautiful part of Monaco with gorgeous views of the 2 ports and the "terrible" high-rise buildings. During the changing of the guard is the square in front of the Palace is overrun by tourists. at night it is deserted. On the rock are also the "Chapelle de la Miséricorde" the Cathedral and the Oceanographical museum to visit.

  • Very nice. Small and cosy. Unassuming.
  • This far turn without visiting the Palace of Monaco, by the way, my advice is if you both get tickets Combo car collection and the Palace at a more affordable price gajic you
