Starting at 10 am, HSH Prince Albert will open the show, which lasts until Sunday, February 19, on the Quai Albert 1er, the Place du Casino and the Place du Palais. The show is dedicated to innovation, prestige and ecology, the organisers say.

Entrance to the International Motor Show of Monaco is €15. Access is free for children under-10.
