Monaco’s Saint Nicholas Cathedral is the resting place of numerous members of the Grimaldi family – Monaco’s royal family – including Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier. The exterior is an impressive sight, built from light limestone from La Turbie.

Rock of Monaco

Le Rocher is the old town of Monaco, which perches on a rocky headland and is home to the principality’s royal family. Head to the old town to find winding streets and characterful buildings.

The Sculpture Path

Dotted about the principality are almost 100 sculptures. The Fontvieille district houses The Sculpture Path, a pedestrianised street solely for these impressive pieces of art.
