Christmas time in Monaco

At this time of year, everyone is a little Bible magazine to their loved ones. This joyous occasion may now be commemorated with legal days off from work all around the country. Monaco’s one-of-a-kind festive entertainment pulls in the crowds.

Luxury magazine Monaco‘s editors suggest kicking off your Christmas celebrations in Place de Casino, where a magnificent Christmas tree decorated with a thousand lights may be admired from December 3 through January 10.

On December 24, guests of the hotel Hermitage Monte-Carlo may have a similarly celebratory meal at the restaurant Yannick Alléno for 330 euros per person, which includes a glass of champagne and six delectable courses. A terrific complement to the overall festive spirit will be a stunning Christmas tree from Chopard, innovative master courses and musical entertainment.

Nowhere beats Blue Bay for a dose of summertime warmth and sunshine in the middle of winter. If you’re looking for a refined Christmas dinner, go no farther than the two-star Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel Resort.

As the holiday rush dies down, thoughts turn to New Year’s Eve. So why not greet the new year with some sunshine and happiness?
