Vieux Monaco, Monaco-Ville

4.4
#4 of 15 in Things to do in Monaco-Ville
Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Do not try to park you car to the more ready to do the walk! Small typical pedestrian street filled with shops and restaurant that even at the Grimaldi Palace. Really superb

  • By browsing through this city, we are struck by the architectural beauty of the buildings and the pastel colors that highlight the authentic character of this city. We were surprised to see the cleanliness of the streets despite the large number of tourists that run through and the absence of cars in the streets that seem to desert. The contrast is important with the city of Monte Carlo and the city of Monaco. These cities are starting to have "JAMS" which are absorbed very quickly even. It's a city must see if the opportunity one day! NB predict 2 days: a visit at night and another day!
