Weekend in Monaco with #hello_monaco

For the many people this weekend will revolve around Easter Sunday, one of the most festive events among Christians worldwide, for others it will be marked by the starts of the Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters 2017, either way it is going to be very interesting.

Easter holiday in the Christian world commemorates Jesus Christ’s resurrection from death, as written in the Christian bible.

Many Christians worldwide celebrate Easter with special church services, music, candlelight, flowers and the ringing of church bells. Among traditions are Easter eggs and the Easter Bunny, both fertility symbols, holdovers from the feast of Eostara. Easter Sunday marks the end of lent, when the whole family gathers around Easter table. Many restaurants in the Principality offer special events and menues on the theme of Easter. Some of them are:
