Saturday, April 20
Enter into the Easter spirit from the moment you arrive in Monaco. What could be more iconic than a trip to the Casino de Monte-Carlo to get things started? Take your family to visit the Casino Atrium with its impressive, spring-inspired pop-up display entitled: In The Name of the Rose. The display pays homage to SAS Princess Grace and Karl Lagerfeld, godfather of the famous Monaco Rose Ball. The design features a subtle interplay of dice and mirrors.
Dine at the Café de Paris Monte-Carlo and soak up the Monaco atmosphere as you and your family enjoy the ongoing festivities. You’ll be able to look out over the legendary Place du Casino, renowned as the beating heart of Monaco. You can watch the parade of luxury cars as they file past the Casino de Monte-Carlo and the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo while you sit on the terrace enjoying brasserie fare and traditional ice cream.
Once you’ve dropped off your luggage at one of our 4- or 5-star hotels, why not head to one of the resort’s heated swimming pools: enjoy a few lengths beneath the glass roof of the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, take a dip in the salt water Olympic-sized swimming pool at Monte-Carlo Beach or head to the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo. Life really is beautiful by the water!
Once you and your family have browsed the new luxury boutiques in One Monte-Carlo, head to Mada One for a pre-dinner drink and snacks, where Michelin-starred chef Marcel Ravin will delight you with his range of modern, sophisticated light bites inspired by different world cuisines. Then why not continue your evening with a meal at ÔMER, the new restaurant from chef Alain Ducasse. The unique menu takes inspiration from across the Mediterranean, and you’ll be able to enjoy a whole range of different flavors. Or you could take your family to an AS Monaco basketball match at the Gaston Médecin arena, before relaxing ahead of Easter Sunday! You could take your family to Monte-Carlo Beach and enjoy some of the hotel’s sport and leisure facilities in the spring sunshine.Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & ResortMonte-Carlo Beach

You can’t celebrate Easter without going on an Easter egg hunt! Head along to the Blue Gin bar at the Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort for their annual Easter egg hunt. Everyone’s welcome and this year the hunt has a circus theme, so make sure you pack fancy dress outfits for all the family and get ready for a morning of fun!
The Belle Époque dining room at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo is hosting a special Easter lunch. There’ll even be children's entertainment in the form of an Easter egg hunt, together with craft and patisserie workshops. So, what’s this year’s theme? Alice in Wonderland and the magical world of Lewis Carroll. And of course, you’ll be able to enjoy an incredible Easter lunch prepared by Michelin-starred chef Benoît Witz and his team.
Other ways to celebrate Easter in Monte Carlo:
Discover a whole series of gourmet events that can't be missed.
Enjoy a musical interlude with your family at the incredible Opéra Garnier de Monte-Carlo. At 3 pm, you’ll be able to see Verdi’s Otello opera, performed by the chorus of the Opéra Garnier de Monte-Carlo and the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra. If you'd rather hear some church music this Easter, then head to Saint-Charles Church at 4 pm to listen to a choir sing Baroque-style music from composer Henry Purcell.
After your musical interlude, finish off your Easter Sunday in style with a family meal at L’Hirondelle restaurant in the Thermes Marins Monte-Carlo. There’s an Easter menu as well as daily specials, vegetarian dishes and a wellness menu, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Enjoy your meal with a healthy fresh-fruit cocktail while looking out over Port Hercules and the Rock.

The Easter weekend continues… and so much the better! Take your family for a game of tennis on the clay courts at the Monte-Carlo Country Club, where you’ll also have a great view of the sea! It's the perfect setting for a morning of sport. Or you might prefer a spot of golf at the Monte-Carlo Golf Club in a heavenly location looking down over Monaco and the Mediterranean Sea.
Enjoy great food that’s good for you and the environment at Elsa, a Michelin-starred restaurant that’s 100% organic, where chef Paolo Sari has developed a lavish but healthy Easter menu. Sip on a glass of champagne while the children enjoy a special surprise…
If you’re leaving Monaco by car, then take a quick detour to enjoy breathtaking views of the Principality from high up in the hinterland. In the small town of La Turbie, there’s a rocky outcrop called the Tête de Chien (Dog’s Head) where you’ll have a superb panoramic view that stretches from the Esterel mountain range in France all the way to the town of Bordighera in Italy. And you can gaze out over the boundless Mediterranean Sea… See you soon!
