Culture, cuisine and everything in between
The Casino… The Grand Prix… The rich and famous. The world’s second smallest country certainly comes with a huge name. Just along from Nice on the Côte d’Azur, Monaco packs a lot into a small space.Book now
With 316 days of sunshine a year, it’s no wonder Menton has been producing lemons ever since the 15th century. And what better way to celebrate this than holding an annual festival dedicated to the citrus fruit.
The Fête du Citron started as a small flower and citrus fruit exhibition back in 1934 and has grown in popularity and size ever since. It now fills the streets with some 250,000 visitors each year.
Enjoy the floral processions, citrus-themed floats, and abundance of entertainment on offer. It’s one of the most important events on the Riviera - after the Nice Carnival - so not to be missed. The festival takes place from 15 February – 2 March 2014.
The most prestigious of all Formula 1 races is held in Monaco each May. The race has been held here since 1929 and has attracted stars of entertainment ever since.
The race goes through the town so there is plenty of opportunity to see the cars speed past. The best spot seems to be on the K1 grandstand located in the harbour, there's also a big screen here for you to watch the rest of the race.
Tip: It's very, very noisy so don't forget your ear plugs!
