Experience the magic of Christmas in Monaco
Many people are wondering about the traditional Christmas festivities in Monaco, in this exceptional year of 2020. Young and old alike can rest assured! The magic of the festivities will liven up the Principality, not without a few amenities. Sanitary restrictions mean that the festivities must be organised in such a way as to ensure that they rhyme with intimacy.
Discover a selection of the most beautiful activities to celebrate Christmas in small groups.
Monaco's Christmas Village: a reduced size, for the pleasure of the little ones
The Christmas market will not be held this year, as the health situation does not allow it.
The Village, on the other hand, will be well maintained in a reduced format. It will bring life to the Port, to bring joy and happiness to the children of the Principality. Indeed, they will be able to enjoy four attractions, including a new merry-go-round which will give the youngest children in particular a fairy-tale caribou ride.
Gourmet breaks in Monaco: the magic card
Enjoy Christmas, with the gourmet breaks of the Rock! The most beautiful hotel buildings will place Christmas under the sign of gastronomy. Rediscover the magic of the mountains, around a refined and gourmet snack, in the heart of the patio of the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, redecorated in a chalet for the occasion. You can also enjoy delicious moments at the Hotel Hermitage Monte Carlo, with its Christmas snacks: a pastry buffet and cooking workshops for little ones will be on the menu.
Christmas illuminations in Monaco: a spark of happiness
What would Christmas be without its thousand sparkling lights? Since the end of November, some emblematic places such as the Place of Arms, already glitter in the colours of Christmas. And the festivities will continue throughout the month of December, for the pleasure of the eyes.
From 3 December, the Monaco Sea Bathing Company will in turn be illuminated, followed by the main streets and squares of the city. In total, no less than nineteen scenographies and several hundred motifs will animate the city, in the streets and on the buildings. Enjoy this show during a family outing, to be done on foot or by car.
A beautiful, festive and original way to rediscover the Principality's exceptional architectural heritage, its life and its districts.
Although the festive season of 2020 may not have the splendour of previous years, everything has been planned so that young and old alike can celebrate Christmas in small groups and get together as a family. And nothing will prevent Father Christmas from joining in the festivities, to the delight of the children.
