The Prince’s Palace of Monaco Welcomes The Public

The Grand Apartments of the Prince's Palace have reopened to the public for the bustling tourist season. Visitors can now explore the lavish lifestyle of the Grimaldi family over the centuries and learn about the remarkable restoration of the Palace frescoes.
The Grand Apartments of Monaco's Palace stand as a testament to the opulence and refinement of the Principality's rulers over the centuries. Adorned with intricate details and magnificent halls, each room narrates Monaco's rich heritage and regal legacy.

In contrast to numerous royal residences globally, often closed or open only on rare occasions, the Palace of Monaco warmly welcomes visitors daily until October 13th, granting them firsthand access to its majestic interiors.

Guests can admire the magnificent decor and fine furnishings that have adorned these halls for generations. Enhanced with ornate chandeliers, gilded mirrors, and priceless artworks, these rooms emanate an aura of grandeur and refinement.

Additionally, visitors will have the opportunity to witness the remarkable Italian Renaissance frescoes spanning over 600 sqm of the Palace.

Concealed for nearly five centuries, the frescoes were unexpectedly revealed during restoration efforts in 2015.

With the support of Prince Albert II, the monumental endeavor to restore the 16th-century frescoes found in the Galerie d'Hercule and the Grand Apartments has elevated the Palace of Monaco to prominence in the annals of world art history.

This achievement is not only due to the importance of the discoveries but also to the pioneering and innovative approach to sustainable restoration. This methodology prioritizes the preservation of artworks while conserving resources.

Admission fees to visit the Grand Apartments are €10 per adult, and €5 per child.
