Long live the cause of freedom (1)
Hope you enjoyed your 2nd long weekend last week, because you'll have to wait another month for the next official holiday.
As for unofficial holidays, we're all looking forward to the Grand Prix in just 3 weeks, when many businesses close. Now's the time to decide if you'll stay for the party, or get away for a relaxing weekend. If you're stuck in Monaco but want to avoid the race (not everyone is a petrol-head), take the opportunity to try places a short ride or walk away from the centre. Beach restaurants such as Lamparo and Cap Marquet in Cap d'Ail, and K Beach in Roquebrune are all open and well away from the noise of cars.
