What’s On in Monaco this January?

There’s no need to suffer with post-holiday let-down this month given the Principality’s packed schedule of fun events and happenings. Monaco Life rounds up the highlights. 

January and February get a bad rap. Sure, it’s cold, dark and sometimes a bit dreary, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do to stay entertained. In the Principality, there are numerous dates planned in the coming weeks that are sure to keep the winter blues at bay.  

Fun-for-all Pick – The Roller Station, this year’s replacement for the ice-skating rink, has been such a hit that the mairie has decided to keep it going until 26th February. Enjoy a little skate every day from noon to 9pm in the Port of Monaco. Kids under five are free and rental skates are available. Click here for more information.  

Family Pick – The Festival International du Cirque de Monte-Carlo is back after a two-year hiatus and is going to be bigger and better than ever.
