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
