Fort Antoine was built in the early 1700's and rebuilt after being destroyed in WW2. Most cruise ships will ancho offshore in Monaco and the tender boat will drop you off right near the Fort. We walked up through the defensive positions, theater and gardens to the Prince's Palace of upper Monaco-Ville in about 30 minutes taking our time. I... More

The theatre is built in an old fort, around the theatre they have created a tiered garden.We started from the bottom and took the stairs up. There are various viewing platforms on the way.

In walking back to the harbor from the palace, we found this garden area. The Theater looks like a very nice place to see a small event (small theater). We enjoyed the grounds but nothing really to go out of your way for.

We found the fort area on our way walking up from the Cruise ship terminal which is just below the Fort and large rock it is located on. There are a series of switchback steps to let you go up and down the side of the rock. At the top, you are only a few blocks from the Oceanographic Museum,... More
