Commence your walking tour passing by the monumental stone Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium, inaugurated in 1910 by Prince Albert I. Continue strolling through the narrow streets, then proceed to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception where Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace Kelly married, and which now contains their tombs. Next, continue on to the Palace Square, which is dominated by the magnificent residence of Prince Albert II. Guests will then enjoy some free time before continuing the descent from the old town. Next, drive on a portion of the circuit of the Grand Prix to Monte Carlo, one of the area's signature attractions.
