Palais Princier - Cour d'Honneur

Le sol de la Cour d'Honneur, réalisé sous le présent règne, forme une composition géométrique subtile où se mêlent galets et dalles de pierre. 
Face à l'escalier en marbre de Carrare, inspiré de celui de Fontainebleau, des fresques parent la façade ; elles représentent notamment " Le Triomphe de Bacchus " et " Les Divinités de la Mer ".
D'autres fresques ornent l'élégante Galerie d'Hercule; entre les portes et les fenêtres se tiennent des personnages mythologiques. C'est de cette galerie que le Souverain apparaît à tous les Monégasques réunis dans la Cour d'Honneur, lors de circonstances importantes, telles que avènements, présentations d'une future princesse ou d'un enfant princier.
