Near the cruise ship dock you will find the Fort Antoine fortress. It was built in the 18th century on the northeastern part of the Rock of Monaco. While heavily damaged in 1944, it was rebuilt under Prince Rainier III in 1954 and it’s interior is now home to an open-air theater. The walls, watch towers, and gun emplacements remain. As you walk up the many steps, there are flat areas with pyramids of cannon balls as a reminder of its military usage. The fortress’ cannons were used to announce the births of Princess Caroline, Prince Albert and Princess Stephanie. This is worth a visit.
