Free guided tours of Monaco’s Japanese Garden are being offered until May 1 as part of the inaugural Côte d’Azur Garden “OFF” Festival.
The garden, a favourite with visitors, has the various symbolic, immutable elements of a Japanese garden, including a pond, islands, a waterfall, a tea-house and its own garden, lanterns and bridges.
Located next to the Mediterranean, the Garden was for the most part designed in 1994 by Japanese landscape architect Yasuo Beppu, in line with age-old traditions, at the request of Prince Rainier III, and named after the late Princess Grace.
Visits for the free guided tour are by appointment (Mr. Restellini:+377 98 98 83 36), with registration required.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Thomas Fouilleron, Director of Archives and Prince's Palace Library, and Colonel Tony Varo, Superior Commander of the Public Force, have been distinguished by the French High Authorities.
