#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on March 18th and March 19th
It’s Friday evening and it’s time to get ready for the weekend. And HelloMonaco prepared as always our suggestions of selected events.
On March 18, 2023, the Office National des Forêts (ONF) is organizing in partnership with the Principality of Monaco and the municipality of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin a free event, by online reservation, on the theme: “Good health and well-being”, the objective being to make the general public aware of the importance of the forest.
Departing from Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, participants will be able to discover the richness of the natural and cultural heritage, from the seaside town to its village perched at an altitude of 225 meters, before reaching Mont-Gros via a hiking trail to admire a breathtaking view of the Principality and the Mediterranean.
During this 1h30 walk, ONF agents will introduce participants to the actions implemented thanks to the partnership between the ONF, the municipality of Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and the Principality of Monaco set up in 1986, following devastating fires, in order to protect the forests, their biodiversity and the reception of the public through the creation of trails, connected walks, panoramic viewpoints or even the installation of an insect hotel.
During this walk, activities on the themes of food in the forest and health in the forest will also be offered to participants.
The play “Rose au bois dormant” (“Sleeping Rose”) will be on stage of Théâtre des Muses from Saturday 18, at 2.30 p.m. and 4.30 p.m., to Sunday 19 March 2023, at 11 a.m.
A modern version of the famous tale by the Brothers Grimm, whose codes are for once shaken up with humor and poetry. “At the dawn of her sixteenth birthday, she will prick her finger on a spindle and die,” exclaims the ugly fairy Nepenthes, casting her bad spell at Rose’s baptism. This is without counting on the fairy Mimosa, extravagant godmother of the child, and the help of prince Christian, cowardly with a big heart.
