La Rampe Major is an uphill footpath which leads to the Place du Palais in the heart of the old town of Monaco and of course, to the Rock of Monaco which is the highest point of view of the whole Principality.
It is also the oldest and most direct route to Monaco-Ville where you can find all the most iconic landmarks of the Principality of Monaco. Some people might describe the route as arduous, however, the views that accompany this footpath will make you want to reach the top even more where you will witness a phenomenal panorama of the region.
During the 13th century, the ramp was used as a means of communication between the plateau and the Prince’s Palace. Today, it is a pedestrian route approximately 3 km long with red paved stairs that combines good exercise with sightseeing.
Easily accessible from the port, take the road of La Rampe Major and let it guide you through the best views of the Principality and its lush surroundings.
