Calling all musicians! The Mairie is looking for acts for the Fete de la Musique (21 June). You'll have to hurry tho' as the closing date is tomorrow. Send your application with an audio/video of the music and your phone number or email, to Espace Leo Ferre, 25-29 ave Albert II, 98000 Monaco. Phone +377 93 10 12 10 for more information.

On Monday France dropped the need to wear masks on public transport, but note that here in Monaco they're still required.

Transport by taxi may be easier during the high season (1 May to 31 Oct) as the Government has announced an easing of regulations for French drivers wishing to operate in Monaco. The number of licences has been increased and some constraints are being reviewed. Full details on the Government website.

If you're taking the train leave early and check out the photo exhibition at the Parvis Sainte-Devote main station entrance. It ends 31 August, is called "Un prince en mouvement" and is part of the Albert 1er centenary celebrations.

For those who prefer walking, Decathlon is organising a 5km "Ecorando" on Saturday to collect litter along the Monaco-Cap d'Ail coastal path. It sets off at 9:30 from the Decathlon store in Fontvieille, is expected to last 2 hours, is free but you need to register on the Decathlon website.

After all that exercise get over to the Monte Carlo Market which is promoting Corsican food on Saturday. Open 8:00 to 14:00.

And finally...
