Monaco will be hosting a very special visitor next month… Father Christmas is coming to town to tour the landmarks of the Principality, spread festive cheer and bring the spirit of the holidays to life. Here’s when and where you can meet him!

From 17th to 25th December, Société des Bains de Mer will be graciously hosting Santa as he embarks on a whistlestop tour of the Monaco on his sleigh. 

Everyone is invited to come along and meet him, and enjoy the elegant Christmas decorations strung up throughout the central Monte-Carlo neighbourhood. 

He will be weaving his way through some of the Principality’s most iconic locations, beginning in the Place du Casino before heading along the Avenue de Monte-Carlo and making stops at the Hôtel de Paris, Hôtel Hermitage and Café de Paris between 1pm and 5pm on 17th, 20th, 23rd, 24th and 25th December. 

This experience, open to all and entirely free to access, is an ideal opportunity for families and friends to gather and celebrate the spirit of Christmas together over the holidays.  

For those eager to follow Santa’s magical journey in Monaco, updates and details are available on the Instagram account @MonteCarloSBM.
