Monaco was a dream come true to me, Grace Kelly's home. And the palace, oh well, just perfect, it's like a fairy tale place, everything is perfect there and clean.

Walked from the train station to the palace and arrived just as a changing of the guard was in progress. Great views from the surroundings. Trinket and cap shops proliferate on the narrow streets, along with small cafes and street food. There are an uncommon number of beautiful women walking around Monaco, which is an uncommonly beautiful place anyway.

It was quite a climb but well worth it. Could use the on/off tourist bus. The views from the grounds are quite stunning.

somehow curious to cross borders just walking on a street, that little gem Monaco, elegant, precious and so normal. felling good, just a sensation of something different but good, I feel kind of the same in Manhattan. hard to explain, let say is a bit of magic.

Incredible views after climbing the numerous steps up to the palace, but unfortunately once we were there, we were unable to go in there. The streets are the area surrounding it are lovely, and feel very 'french', but overall, would only visit for the views.

If this was the only reason to stop in Monaco, then one can pass. It is nice and quaint with streets literally cleaned every day but you cannot visit inside. It almost feels like an attraction made for tourists only despite being an actual historical building. Nice views of the districts of Monaco including Monte Carlo but for me, it... More

This was a must for us on our day trip. We caught the hop on hop off tour bus, great way to get around Monaco. We made sure we got here for the changing of the guard, 11 oclock .What a great performance. The place was really clean and you had great views over Monaco. Really recommend this place.

Historial building, no glittery decorations, just nice and clean. You are not allowed to visit inside, but the building and the surroundings are well worth the trip up there anyway. The old town on the castle hill is in great contrast to the rest of Monaco.

This is a great way to have fantastic views over the city. It is spotlessly clean and very picturesque. Lots of little shops and place to eat. Highly recommended
