Vieux Monaco, Monaco-Ville

(4.4/5 based on 600+ 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.

  • 摩納哥公國地方小,公車很方便,很準時,可以搭1號公車前往皇宮,但搭車要注意,要看公車所標示的終點站,否則會等公車等錯邊,搭錯方向。 下了公車,穿過小巷走五分鐘,就到了王宮廣場。王宮建築並不雄偉,但四周的圍牆卻也顯露威嚴。王宮開放時間是4月到10月上午10點到下午6點,要買門票。但開放日期會更動,這次10月中來已經關閉,要明年才會開放。廣場兩邊也都可以俯視海岸景色及遊艇碼頭。王宮入口前方有衛兵亭,裡...  more »
