What's new


Happy New Year! We hope that 2018 brings you health, happiness and peace.

Schools reopen on Monday, the Christmas Village closes this weekend, but the ice rink remains until 11 March, as does the free fall simulator that's installed behind the pool diving board. For 49 euros (39 euros for under 12s) you can see what it's like to fly through the air without the need to jumping out of a plane. For more information and reservations visit the website SkyDream.

Back on solid ground, the sales started in Monaco on Tuesday and continue until 15 February, whilst the Casino supermarket in the port is open 24/7 until 8 January for your late night food shopping.

A new sports centre managed by the Mairie is scheduled to open in spring. It's next to the Stade Nautique in the space vacated by Monaco Fitness Center Guy-Mierczuk. Entry is expected to be 25 euros, with weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual subscriptions available. The Mairie's facebook page is asking the public for suggestions as to a name for the centre, and if you have any ideas, email them to communication[at]mairie.mc before end of business tomorrow.

And finally, Monaco provided a New Year celebration away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. In summer some rather more ancient royalty will be visiting when the Grimaldi Forum's summer exhibition brings us the Gold of the Pharaohs. You can reserve your tickets already for 6 euros at the ticket office.

(1) This week's quote is by Helen Keller, and in full states "The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision. Our newsletter today remembers French educator Louis Braille, born this day 1809. His vision led him to invent a system of reading for the visually impaired that bears his name.
