Fort Antoine Theater, Monaco-Ville

#8 of 10 in Nightlife in Monaco
Concert / Show · Theater
The Fort Antoine Theatre is a small amphitheatre on the Avenue de la Quarantaine in the Monaco-Ville ward of Monaco. The fort hosts open air plays in the summer months.
The theatre was originally constructed as a fortress in the early 18th-century before its destruction in 1944. Prince Rainier III had the fortress rebuilt as a theatre in 1953. The parapet of the fort is provided by pittosporum hedges. The militaristic nature of its architecture has been retained with a bartizan and a pyramid of cannonballs at the centre of the theatre.

  • Brilliant viewpoint over Monaco. I believe the Fort is sometimes used for theatre so may not always be accessible. However, if it is, it is an excellent spot for photos looking back at Monaco and its harbour. I would recommend coming here both during the day and at night to see Monaco lit up.
  • Nice place for taking pics. In summer great live music
