Dramatically situated beneath the Princes Palace on the cliff that is Monaco Ville, Fontvielle is a charming oasis after the noisy chaotic building site which is modern Monaco. There are around a dozen fairly unpretentious and reasonably priced (particularly at lunchtime) local restaurants and bars....More

This is a lovely place to walk and talk and to take in the beauty of such a place. We were on our honeymoon and this was ideal for us!

I suggest anyone goint to Monaco, to go see this port because it's really nice and has great views over some fantastic boats and you can see bottom/top the castle. Great also because you can live it a bit more thanks to less people around

If you want to stay off the beaten path or eat in a restaurant that is somewhat off the beaten path in Monte Carlo, then consider Fontvieille.....quiet, tranquil, and very scenic, great place to stroll around, plenty of restaurants to chose from, but without the...More

If you want to get away from busy Monte Carlo the Port Fontvielle is just the place. The yachts are not quiet as big as the main port but pretty impressive anyway. You are just over the road from the Princes car collection which is...More

my husband and I will be staying in Columbus Hotel, Fontvieille in October. We are trying to find out about any bus service that runs to this district from Nice airport. The airport express has stopped running here as of June 2015 so their nearest drop to our hotel seems to be Place d'Ames which looks quite a walk according to the map. Has anyone any suggestions please, would be very grateful.
