Shops and restaurants on the Rock are inviting people to join them every Friday for the rest of July and August to ‘Rediscover Your Neighbourhood’ with a series of cultural and entertainment events for the whole family to enjoy.
Retailers in the historic district of Monaco-Ville are calling on the public to come up from 4pm to 9pm every Friday until 20th August to enjoy creative workshops, fashion shows, treasure hunts, open-air concerts, a show by the Prince’s Carabiniers and numerous other events under the initiative ‘Rediscover Your Neighbourhood’.
This follows last year’s ‘Thursdays on the Rock’ which was organised to help reinvigorate the old town during summer 2020, which had been particularly affected by the first lockdown. Both programmes have been financed by the government and are a creative way to help boost the economy of the district.
The hope is that more people will be drawn to the Rock to frequent the shops and restaurants, which are usually packed this time of year with tourists. The ongoing health crisis has again disrupted the usual flow this year, and many businesses are struggling.
The events will follow all health and safety measures and carry the Monaco Safe label.
