It’s already Friday! It’s time to put work aside and do something fun with your family and friends. And it looks like it’s going to be quite an athletic weekend in Monaco.
Though AS Monaco’s incredible adventure in this season’s Champions League is over, the Red & Whites have made it into Europe’s top four and will now look to clinch the French league title, as they prepare to host Lille at the Stade Louis-II on Sunday evening. The match is scheduled for 14 May at 21.00 at Stade Louis II.

Open to European and non-European teams, the Championship is the biggest event aside from the 470 World Championships in 2017.
A strong fleet of Olympians and elite racers are competing alongside some younger and newer teams in this post-Olympic year. The European Championship title will be awarded to the top placed European teams, with prizes to the non-European teams.
And of cause the event, that all the Principality was getting ready for… is the the 2nd edition of the Monaco ePrix will take place on 13th May 2017.

Another event for kids 6 years and older is a show “Touh” by and with J. Chartier and L. Bartolini on Saturday 13 May, at 6 pm and 9 pm and Sunday 14 at 4.30 pm in Théâtre des Muses.
Follow the footsteps of one of the greatest archaeological mysteries of history, that of Emperor Touh. Several historical facts leave researchers perplexed. Why Antarctica appears on a map 200 years before its discovery? What hide the 3000 pyramids found in the Egyptian desert thanks to the Internet? Did Leonardo da Vinci place a secret in his painting of “Saint John the Baptist”? This is what Ema and her brother will discover in spite of themselves.
Before dying, their father leaves them a notebook, proof of the existence of this secret but obviously, they are not the only ones to be interested. Pursued, they embark on a fabulous treasure hunt in the four corners of the globe, solving the puzzles in search of Emperor Touh. A frantic and perilous journey, a true adventure film! Tickets are available at €16-€29.
