But he isn't wearing anything at all (1)
Easter is here and there's plenty to keep you occupied if you're staying in Monaco. Tomorrow is Good Friday, with a traditional stations of the cross procession at 12:30 from Place d'Armes to the Cathedral. On Sunday and Monday there are plenty of restaurants open, and if you're looking for a special gift, you may still be able to get hold of a Faberge inspired chocolate egg. Check our Easter guide for more ideas.
Printemps des Arts continues with performances of a Sibelius symphony, Bach's Art of the Fugue, and a further selection of Bach's work.
The first ever LikeBike show also takes place over the Easter weekend, with around 90 exhibitors and some high value cycles. Among the designer 2-wheelers and cycles made from wood, bamboo and gold, there's a pedal-powered aquatic bike and a self-propelled machine with a price tag of 55,000 euros.
Finally, we say farewell to the Louis XV restaurant, which re-opens today under the new, rather unimaginative name of Alain Ducasse at the Hotel de Paris. The 3-star Monaco institution has had a makeover, with new interior design and table decoration by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku. Changes have been made to the menu too, although the kitchen team remains the same.
