Create an itinerary including Fort Antoine 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.

  • Built in the 18th century as a fortress that was damaged in 1944 and then rebuilt as a theatre in 1953. The architecture of the military is retained with the watchtower and pyramid of cannonballs.

  • A very serene place to find some peace, with an amazing view.
  • This is a must check out destination in Monte Carlo. It has been turned into a very nice park. Expect to spend a few hours there depending on how fast you can walk, there are a lot of stairs and uphill walking.
