Monaco Green Days is taking place from 15 July to 15 August 2018. On the program this year: free city tours, garden tours, a treasure hunt and a chance to win prizes!
Created by the Tourism and Congress Department, Monaco Green Days is aimed at tourists visiting the Principality who want to experience Monaco in a new and fun way.
Entertainment in the open-air. On those summer evenings under a starlit sky there is nothing to beat it. Open air concerts have a special ambiance whether in Monaco or in Hollywood. Monaco has something unique though. It has an open-air cinema in the most beautiful and extraordinary setting. If you have not visited there already, go and experience it for yourselves. First of all, it is in the most delightful surroundings. Seascape, starlit sky – and believe it or not, an attractive high fortress-like historic stone wall sits behind the giant 200 square metre screen.

It is so spectacular that it is a natural for TV commercials, with Superman flying above the sea. Rising from the water as if by magic high in the air is a flying ace with a Jet-Pack spraying water. A thrill to watch, a thrill to do. Leonardo DaVinci might be a little jealous even. He drew flying machines; he even drew military tanks but as yet no-one has found a Leonardo drawing from the 15th century of the Water Jet Pack.

Harry Winston Jewellers is known for their exceptional emerald pieces. The necklace being offered on auction at Artcurial‘s summer Auction on July 18th and July 19th is no exception – or rather it is an exception in that it stands out among the thousand or so beautiful items being auctioned.
Emeralds so regal and so meticulously crafted with diamonds into a necklace that the emeralds seem to dance in the air unaided. It would be difficult not to be green with envy, no matter how gracious the onlooker. Did you know that Harry Winston as a child jumped at the chance to buy a green stone, apparently of little value, in a pawn-shop window. Legend has it that he and not the pawn-shop knew the real thing when he saw it. It turned out to be a valuable emerald. And his love affair with emeralds continued unabated into a gem-studded future.
Exhibitions and a concert! The program promises to be rich and varied at Monaco’s Exotic Garden this summer season. Here’s an overview of this summer’s events.
