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.

  • In the spring, a wonderful balm for the soul is the small round on the Rocher, the picturesque wall along, with stunning views to the port of Fontvieille. The gardens to the Oceanographic Museum are in bloom and release their full fragrance. Also, there are not too many tourists, so more leisurely, you can visit the Cathedral, which is on the way. She has her very own vibration. The beautiful way release the look down, on the sea again sea. You can not lost, but you can only enjoy. Most tourists "don't dare" to full down, but would rather remain before the princely Palace.

  • Just as is the case of the old town of Nice, Monaco where most of the city's sights and delightful old town section. The only luxury and grandeur of the rest of the city, watching a cute little here you will see the air in the town of Ak. Clean streets, quaint little cafes and gift shops, parks, and fabulous views of Monaco and the Mediterranean is a must-see for the region.

  • The city is not very great, once parked, I recommend to sightsee on foot. In half a day you can explore everything.

  • Very nice. Small and cosy. Unassuming.
