Are you planning to spend a few days of your July vacation in Monaco?
Don’t forget that Monaco has much more to offer than just glamour, Mediterranean beaches, yachts, and the casino. In fact, it becomes the center of culture in Europe during this time. Artistic and cultural events take place all over the city, and there is something for everyone.
If you love music, we recommend attending the concerts offered by the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra in the Cour d’Honneur of the Prince’s Palace. This year’s edition is inspired by the celebration of the centenary of the birth of Prince Rainier III. And, don’t forget about the Monte Carlo Summer Festival which brings together stars from all styles of music.
Art collectors and enthusiasts will be drawn to ArtMonte-Carlo, a contemporary art fair held at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. Art galleries from all over the world gather to exhibit and sell contemporary art, from paintings and sculptures to installations. This event is characterized by the quality and originality of the works presented, which are carefully selected by a committee of experts.
This year’s ArtMonte-Carlo hosts a special exhibition titled “Monet en pleine lumière” (“Monet in Full Light”), dedicated to the Impressionist painter Claude Monet, which can be seen from July 8th to September 3rd. It offers a fresh look at the artist’s work, celebrating the 140th anniversary of his first visit to Monaco. The exhibition brings together one hundred paintings that trace his work during his stays on the Riviera and includes more than 20 exceptional works exhibited together for the first time, very close to the places where they were painted. The exhibition puts the Master’s work in perspective around his quest to capture light.
And, of course, we cannot forget the spectacular fireworks shows offered in the Monaco bay throughout the month.
Come to Monaco and discover everything this vacation destination has to offer this July! With a wide variety of cultural and artistic events taking place all over the city, there is something for everyone.
