Classic Wheelchair Friendly Monte Carlo Shore Excursion

Budget friendly option using accessible transportation!

Experience Monaco firsthand by combing a picturesque stroll in Monaco-Ville with a visit the famous Monaco Casino! This tour combines an accessible walking/strolling tour with wheelchair friendly public transportation, which means less distance to cover at a more affordable cost than the same tour using a private accessible van.

Start your day by meeting your local tour guide at the cruise dock and enjoy a short stroll from the pier. You’ll spend the first part of your day exploring the heart of the medieval quarter while enjoying the spectacular, picturesque backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea. In Monaco’s charming main square, the Place du Palais, you’ll get to see the Prince’s Palace, home to the House of Grimaldi since 1297.

Your accessible Monaco tour continues as you pass the beautiful St. Nicholas Cathedral, a young church by European standards (it was consecrated in 1875). The church is the burial site of the royal family, including the American actress-turned-princess, Grace Kelly.

Escorted by your friendly tour guide, you’ll explore Old Monaco-Ville and the historic architecture found here. See the spectacular Monaco Cathedral, capture the breathtaking façade of the Oceanographic Museum and Palais du Prince (Prince’s Palace), and enjoy a unique opportunity to watch the Changing of the Guards (only available in the morning). There will also be time to grab a snack or refreshment at one of the accessible cafés in the area.

Spend some time at leisure before your private guide will escort you to Place de la Visitation, where a wheelchair accessible bus will take you on a drive along the portion of the Grand Prix Motor Race circuit. You’ll also have time to see the magnificent Hotel de Paris and the famous Casino.

As your tour comes to an end, you’ll once again board the accessible public bus and head to Place d’Armes. Here you’ll enjoy a leisurely stroll along the picturesque harbor, before returning to your cruise ship.

Important Notes:
– If you would like to gamble at the Monaco Casino you’ll need to bring your passport, and shorts and tennis shoes are not allowed. Casino does not open for gambling until 2pm.
– This tour is available from the Monaco cruise dock.
