It is hard to explain how luxurious and rich the Principality of Monaco is, but this surely stands out once on the principality's streets. The view consists of high skyscrapers, mazes of underground streets, galleries, and very narrow junctions. In the last decades, some sea area were dried out and turned into neighborhoods: La Condamine – a port – and the Princess Grace Rose Garden, not too far from the stadium and airport, were once occupied by the sea. The less spectacular but surely the most fascinating and historical area remains the old town, which is located on the Rocher promontory and is surrounded by the ocean. You can find spotless neighborhoods with plazas and fountains that work as a background for Palais du Prince, the Grimaldi residence built in the year one-thousand. The flight of steps that connects the port to the Palace and the front plaza where you can assist to the change of guards are definitely one major attraction. The Palace is accessible only when the prince is absent.
