Petit Futé's opinion on GRAND APARTMENTS OF THE PRINCES PALACE

Plate millesim 2022

To visit the large apartments of this private residence, allow about forty minutes. The building was built at the end of the 13th century, in the early days of the Grimaldi dynasty, on the site of a castle built in 1215. It was then developed and embellished during the Renaissance. Every year, an impressive procession of tourists rush to discover, for the duration of a visit, a part of the intimacy of the Princes of Monaco through their large and sumptuous apartments. This is an opportunity to see the beautiful Italian-style arcaded gallery adorned with large murals, the princely salons and the Throne Room, which has hosted major events and receptions since the 16th century. You can enjoy the splendour and luxury of the decoration of each element, such as the courtyard of honour, with its Carrara marble staircase, or the Palatine Chapel. From the square of the Palace, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city and the port. The changing of the guard of the carabinieri in their famous local uniforms, white in summer and black in winter, takes place every day at 11:55. The Palace also contains the Chapel of St. John the Baptist, which is not open to the public. Built between 1654 and 1656 by the Genoese architect Jacques Cantone at the request of Prince Honoré II, it was, for the record, entirely restored during the reign of Prince Charles III (1818-1889). Note that the apartments are currently being completely restored.

Très beau palais
Lieu incontournable si vous allez à Monaco. Essayez d'arriver suffisamment tôt pour voir la relève de la garde, il y a foule !

Intéressante visite pour les grands et petits. L'audioguide nous donne quelques renseignements , mais ce n'est pas complet. On aimerais en savoir plus sur les tableaux, les meubles...
L'exposition sur Bosio est superbe.

Cette partie du palais accessible au publique est richement décorée. La visite des appartement est possible pendant les journées du patrimoine monégasques (souvent décalées par rapport à celles qui ont lieu en France).

Très beau palais! Les enfants ont beaucoup aimé découvrir ce cadre si particulier! Un peu cher pour les adultes toutefois...

Une visite audioguidée très intéressante au cœur du pouvoir monégasque, attention photographies totalement interdites !
Vous pourrez découvrir les parties historiques du palais, et apercevoir les appartements privés de la famille princière

Ces appartements sont tout simplement somptueux, malgrès la foule surtout en été. Les facades aussi valent le détour.
