You may prefer to simply stroll in the square and admire the designer boutiques, or try your luck with the slot machines at the Café de Paris Casino.
A guided walking tour leads you up the hill and through the narrow streets, past the Oceanographic Museum and the cathedral containing the tombs of Princess Grace and Prince Rainier.
Between July and Mid-October, the Prince's Palace is open to the public and you will step inside for an interior visit, followed by some free time to explore on your own. Admire the exterior façade as your guide describes the palace and the lives of those who occupy it.
Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.
Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience. The Monte Carlo Casino opens for gaming at 2pm. Casino entrance fee is
