Monaco Yacht Show is in town again and open until Saturday evening. Besides the stalls and vessels in Port Hercule, there are other events taking place around the Principality.

At Nobu in the Fairmont, chef Jerome Lorvellec is working with Joshua Treacy of Nobu Istanbul to prepare a special fusion menu of Japanese and Turkish cuisine. Daily 19:00-23:30, +377 97 70 70 97, nobu.montecarlo[at]

Also at the Fairmont on Saturday, Club Vivanova is organizing a lunch with Eurolink Systems (ELS) to launch the Beluga Drone for the yacht market. If you're involved in the industry and are interested in developing the brand in the region, email club[at]

Vivanova is also hosting a networking party on Friday evening at Twiga in the Grimaldi Forum, and there's a photo exhibition at the Stelios Foundation.

Unrelated to the Yacht Show, on Saturday the eastern end of Larvotto Esplanade will be officially named for Josephine Baker, the French-American entertainer who was a friend of Princess Grace and who's buried in Monaco Cemetery. She'll also be inducted into the French Panthéon in November.


Buses are free on Sunday for the Journee du Patimoine/Matrimoine, which this year features women.

Cruise ships haven't yet returned to Monaco, but they're still travelling the Med. Twenty-five Scandinavian vessels, which usually moor up in the Principality, will be taking turns to anchor in Villefranche up to the end of October.


Over in France shopping centres in the region no longer require visitors to show a health pass, but masks are obligatory until 30 September.

In Italy tho', from 15 October the "Green Pass" will be required for 23 million public and private sector workers. The Government is hoping to encourage more people to get vaccinated before the cold weather arrives.

Here in Monaco numbers have been low for a couple of weeks. The Centre Scientifique de Monaco (CSM) is offering free antibody tests by appointment. This will not only indicate how strong your immunity to Covid is, but will also enable CSM to track the different variants of the virus, and help plan for a potential rebound of the disease in winter.

And finally...

Voting for the Golden Foot awards is open online until 31 October.
