The Monaco Oceanographic Museum was super cool for me, my husband and my 3 kids! We saw amazing sea animals and learned a bunch of interesting stuff about the ocean. The museum had fun things to touch and play with, making it a great place for kids. The big tanks with colorful fish were our favorites. Also it’s possible to eat at the restaurant on the rooftop which has nice turtles and A playground! Plus, the museum has an awesome view of the sea. We had a blast and definitely recommend it to other families!

This has been thus far on our trip (England, France & Italy) my favourite tour. Our guide was professional and very considerate. The destinations were breathtaking and without this tour we wouldn’t have had the privilege to enjoy them. We loved every place we were taken, especially the perfumes! We bought several brands from the factory to a beautiful store in St Paul De Vence (loved this town). I highly recommend this tour…it has been my current highlight! Thank you!! 🙏

It is 100% worth buying the tickets for exploring the Monaco, although it is short trip around the town (about an hour) it is better than just walking as it could be tyring. This recommendation is based on 1 days visit, if you are staying in Monaco for 2 days than it is OK just walk everywhere.
