Marvel at treasures never seen in America in this exclusive tour of Prince Rainier of Monaco's 13th century palace.
In 1956, America was transfixed by royalty when one of Hollywood's biggest stars, Grace Kelly, married the dashing Prince Rainier of Monaco. Their castle, a 13th century structure on a tiny peninsula jutting into the Mediterranean, was perhaps the most magnificent royal palace in the world.
AMERICA'S CASTLES® journeys to the exclusive principality for a comprehensive tour of this unique palace. Originally built as a fortress, it was gradually transformed over the centuries into a lavish palace, filled with great art and luxurious furnishings and decor. Historians and scholars trace the history of the castle from its construction to the present day, and extensive footage shows Grace and Rainier enjoying their magnificent home. And visits to the private chambers reveal treasures never before seen by the public.
PRINCE'S PALACE is a remarkable tour through the history and splendor of one of a truly royal retreat and a fond look at the love story that unfolded within.
