Winter vacations in Monaco: where to go with your kid

Despite the recent extension of the existing sanitary measures in Monaco, you shouldn’t be upset that they happen at the same time as winter vacations. Though the social and cultural life of the principality has suffered from coronavirus, the government made a lot of effort not to introduce a quarantine for the second time. Therefore in Monaco there are still places to go and things to do in this period of winter vacations. HelloMonaco offers you a selection of how to spend your vacation time in Monaco and where to go with the children.

 «You & me»

It is a show that is entertaining, melancholic, funny, romantic, impressive, magical, dramatic, and exciting all at the same time. Without words or music, only silent gestures and a few props, this show uniquely presents scenes of everyday life. Floriana Frassetto, you & me’s artistic director, founded Mummenschanz in 1972 with Andres Bossard and Bernie Schürch. She can still be found onstage with her troupe every night. Her extensive experience lends a very personal nature to the show, and the wonderful lightness of the you & me program resonates long after the end of the performance! 

 When: March 6 at 15.00

Where: Grimaldi Forum Salle Prince Pierre
