The Palais Princier isn't open all year round but is a very rewarding visit. The exterior of the Palace, viewed from the square looks a bit Disneyesque but don't be misled. The interior of the palace is a stunningly beautiful Renaissance creation and immaculately maintained, everything gleams, from the chandeliers to the marble floors. You are given an audio guide...

We had limited time and the reviews I saw were mixed. However, how often do you get to go in an official state palace and there was no line, despite crowds everywhere else. Don't remember the per person price but our family of 4 was 24 Euros which was well worth it. It is self guide which allowed us to... More

The audioguide tour with Albert de Monaco's voice guiding you is fun. But unfortunately, only a few rooms can be seen. And taking pictures is strongly forbitten : you will have for sure a "Mata Hari" spy lady observing you all the way to make you understand that you cannot take any pic!!! Do not expect to spend more than... More

Fabulous architecture and luxury inner decoration. People can see how royal family of Monaco lived. It's a very unique experience for visitors from outside Europe.

The palace is quite small (understandable for such a small country) but still worth a visit. An audioguide is included in the entrance fee. It's a nice walk up to the palace with good views of the harbour. While there, don't miss a short walk in the old town.

This is really nice and includes an audio commentary by Prince Albert. My only complaint? This focuses on the only the beginnings of the principality and personally, I would have liked to see the modern rooms...much like Buckingham Palace.
