The Palace looks like new! It has guards marching in front of the entrance. It is the residence of Prince Albert de Monaco.

We caught the local bus 100 from Nice to Monaco, a great choice and it costs only 1.50 € per person one way. It runs every 15 minutes and the trip takes about 30-45 minutes travelling along the coastline. We were there only a few...More

The palace itself is beautiful to behold. Our driver had to park a short walk away and direct us on foot to visit the site. It's located on a courtyard accessed by many narrow streets with many vendors and shoppes. There is limited auto access...More

I went to the palace during the changing of the guards, and that was really cool to see! It was a bit of a walk up there, but I'm pretty sure there are buses as well. The palace is really pretty and the area around...More

We thought the palace would be like the casino as far as the grandeur but the rooms seemed old and small. The history is nice and the audio tour is helpful...but it was 'OK'. The views are pretty from up top. Make sure you take...More

We went late in the afternoon, if I recall it was around 5pm in August. There was no line up at all, we walked right in and the palace was not crowded. Check for closing times. We spent about an hour and a half exploring the... More

Hi, it is a hop on and off train. The first station is at the front of the staircase of the aquarium. There is a sign there with the train timetable and its stops.
Hi, Could you please tell me the website that you used to buy the combination ticket of Princes Palace & Oceanographic Museum as I can't seem to find it anywhere? Thanks A.

Hi, no need to buy them online. You can get the tickets from the Princes Palace it is more easy But I remember there wasn't any combination tickets just each attraction you should get for it a ticket.
