Nice views of the bay from the top, you can't visit inside the Palace, there are a few guards at the entrance.

Whilst in Monte-Carlo on a business trip with colleagues we had a free day. A walk along the Harbour then up to the Palace for 11am to see the changing of the guard. The views were beautiful. A visit around the shops in all the narrow streets around the old part of Monte-Carlo to buy those tacky souvenirs! A visit... More

Very nice building in the midst of a large square. The palace is located near many apartments as well as churches and a museum. Unlike other palaces that are hidden away from the public in the countryside or other private locations, it's amongst the public.

You will certainly pass by the palace when visiting the old city of Monaco, but there isn't much to see of the palace from outside

Having been to Buckingham Palace & Versailles earlier on our honeymoon trip, my wife & I weren't overly impressed with this Palace, as there was nothing special about it and the walk up to the top was quite long. Don't get me wrong though, the Palace looks big and the guard ceremony is still worth the trip up if you're... More

We are from Philadelphia, home of Princess Grace Kelly, so this was the highlight of my European tour. The headphones were great for the boys, ages 11,10 and 8. We loved seeing the changing of the guard ceremony. Would like to have seen more information about seeing the gardens and where or how to see them.

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

Came here when on our holiday . A slight walk up the hill however great views over the harbour , port and the town. Great places for pictures. Also you will be able to see the guards outside.

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
