Nothing amazing, just your usual huge european palace with a changing of the guard but if you are here in Monte Carlo of course check it out. Walking just a little bit away from palace gives incredible views though of the harbor and the city

The Palace is situated on a hill. A bit of a walk but spectacular views all around on the way up. Punctuate the walk up by stopping and taking some lovely shots of Monaco. We were unable to see the changing of the guards...we were there the wrong day. Lots of boutique-like stores around the Palace. From the Palace, walk... More

The square on which Prince's Palace sits is perched on top of the hill where there's magnificent views of the entirety of Monaco. The harbour in Monaco is called Port Hercules. Cause there’s gonna be plenty of big yachts and big cruise ships making port. This cathedral just around the corner is where the wedding of Grace Kelly, the Princess... More

Just fine. Not much to see there, though there are surprising many amazing secret spots to discover, if you are smart..

The Prince's Palace of Monaco was home of the Grimaldi family, it's perfectly located in one of the highest parts of the city with a beautiful view perfect to spot the whole harbor and city, Be there for the changing of the guards, it's a must!

We were brought here on a guided tour and so were in time to see the changing of the guard at noon. A little band marches out and there's a lot of ceremonial presentation of arms and the like.

We queued in the hot sun to enter the palace reception where security was tight and unfriendly. We picked up an audio guide and ambled through the rooms where the history of the first family of this Principality was told. Most of it was interesting. I found the artifacts relating to Princess Grace of particular interest, particularly the old photos.... More

Coming here requires a little bit of effort but it is worthy. Although we were not able to enter in the palace, we found it very beautiful.
