Monaco-Ville Walk (Self Guided), Monte-Carlo

Familiarize yourself with Monaco-Ville, the oldest part of the principality of Monaco. Stroll along its pleasant jumble of cobblestone streets, past characterful buildings, small boutiques and souvenir and craft shops. Stop for a drink and a bite to eat at one of the delightful little cafés and restaurants. Among them is a generous smattering of Italian eateries, their sumptuous aromas filling the neighborhood at lunch and dinner time.

Monaco-Ville is a compact area, exuding beauty and charm and is a wonderful place to spend some time. It is where the visitor can get a good feel for old Monaco, before the modern skyscrapers were constructed and the luxury yachts and super yachts dropped anchor in the bay and port. While you are in this part of Monaco, go and see Saint Nicholas Cathedral.

This Roman-Byzantine-style place of worship was built in 1875 and is where many deceased members of the ruling Grimaldi family are buried, including Prince Rainier and Princess Grace, the former Hollywood actress Grace Kelly. Step inside the gorgeous looking building to admire the rich religious art and décor, such as an altarpiece that dates from the early 16th century. There is also an Episcopal throne in white Carrara marble.
