We'd like to wish team Monaco all the best at the 2012 London Olympics, which start tomorrow.
In addition to the Olympic Games, a local sporting event is also about to kick off. It's the start of the French football season, and if you want to watch Monaco FC playing at home in Stade Louis II, we've created a handy list of matches for you.
Monaco's newest Italian restaurant, Address, is open for business. When we passed by, we were advised to phone ahead to be sure of a table, as there are only a small number of covers. You'll find the menu and extensive wine list on the restaurant's website, which promises fine Italian food, unique dishes and an intimate atmosphere. Let us know what you think if you get there before us.
Another place to watch out for is the restaurant previously known as Taverne in Beausoleil. Located on the corner of boulevard de la Republique, opposite Savannah Bar, the Grano de Oro is due to open in September.
