The Lemon Festival (Fête du Citron) is the resort’s biggest annual event. Tonight, we enjoy the Night Parade; a wonderful mix of sights and sounds. Brass bands, orchestras and dancers all add to the excitement and splendour of this incredible street festival. Enjoy a fantastic display of floats, dances, music and entertainment.

This morning, you have the opportunity to join us on an optional excursion to Monaco. The Principality of Monaco’s eight square miles form the second smallest, but almost certainly wealthiest, sovereign city-state in the world, with 30% of the population being millionaires.

Nicknamed 'The Rock', this tiny capital is built against the mountains and sprawls down to the glittering shores of the French Riviera. Spend time in Monte Carlo, rub shoulders with the rich and famous and, if you're feeling lucky, take your chances in the famous Grand Casino where the lavish interiors are still decorated in the Belle Époque style.
