Embarking on its first ever road show in Canada, the Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Authority, in collaboration with Atout France, made a recent stop in Toronto to promote the destination and highlight new offers, according to travelweek.ca.
Guy Antognelli, Deputy General Manager, said that despite being only two square kilometres in size, the Principality of Monaco is host to many must-see events and attractions, most notably the Formula One Grand Prix, which takes place each year in May. There’s also the Monte-Carlo International Circus Festival, now in its 41st year, which draws royalty and tourists alike, as well as residents, and the annual Monaco Yacht Show, now recognised as the world’s number one superyacht event.
Monaco’s small size also means that visitors can pack in more sightseeing in less time while covering less ground. Monaco offers North American visitors the chance to join Le Club, which for a fee of $85 includes benefits valued at $300, including free helicopter transfer from Nice Airport. A confirmed three-night reservation at Hôtel de Paris, Hôtel Hermitage, Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo, Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel, Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, Fairmont Monte Carlo, Le Méridien Beach Plaza, Port Palace, Columbus Monte-Carlo or Novotel Monte-Carlo is required to join and receive a one-year individual membership.
The Canadian Club de Monaco will be celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017 with events across the year in the Principality, providing an inviting opportunity for fellow countrymen to both visit the Principality and celebrate the Dominion of Canada.

A Eurostar spokesman said that passengers who had already booked on the affected days would still be able to travel, although there may be some small changes to their schedule. Passengers would be notified of any changes in advance, Eurostar said.
A union spokesman said that management was not respecting an agreement on working conditions made in 2008. “Our members have the right to a balance between their work and their private lives. Eurostar must come to the negotiating table with proposals that respect the previous agreement,” the union said.About 80 union members are affected by the strike.
