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.

  • You have to see it to believe it. All the buildings are tall. I mean ALL! You keep looking up because you expect some buildings to be lower. Very limited physical space so they have to build up. And i...  more »
  • The Principality has a tourist part which can be visited without going into museums, perfectly in one day, and will have made a visit to Monaco very economic. Overlooking the sea, the well-kept is everything, its streets, its gardens, cars and luxury yacht, shop windows, etc, are very significant, although personally I recommend add visits to the Oceanarium, the classic vehicles Museum and the Palace, and can make run us something short day.

  • 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
