Vieux Monaco, Monaco-Ville
(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.

  • The old city (the rock) is very pretty and has remained typical of the Côte d'Azur. It's very small and with that of the shops and restaurants for tourists.

  • The descent of the Palace to the port is a journey full of charm and fantastic views. Everything in Monaco is beautiful.

  • This part of town is pretty small, but it is interesting to go through something old, but at the same time elegant.

  • Very nice. Small and cosy. Unassuming.
