What's On in Monaco October 2018

The summer is well and truly over. The days are getting shorter and there is a nip in the evening air that means that those nights that we can enjoy dining outside are numbered.

However, for some, autumn is the most charming time of year and can certainly be in the running for the most beautiful season. The red leaves on the trees, the golden glow of the brush and those sunsets that turn the world the pink and purple, this might just be Monaco at its best.

There's lots going on in the Principality throughout October. Here are just some handpicked events.

La Route du Gout

Monaco's favourite organic chef, Paolo Sari, brings us another edition of his bio food festival, La Route du Gout to the Principality. With activities and entertainment for all the family alongside local organic producers and gastronomy, this is a wonderful foodie event.

Book a Restaurant

Les Gourmand'Eze

Keeping to the gourmet theme, the small town of Eze, just a 15-minute ride from Monaco, is celebrating its annual gastronomic festival, Les Gourmand'Eze. This year, the food festival is dedicated to patisserie and you know nobody creates more beautiful, refined baked goods than the French. Special guests are Michelin-starred chef Michel Roth and award-winning patissier Yann Couvreur famous for his Madagascar vanilla mille-feuille.

Get a Coffee

Monte-Carlo Music Masters

The world's most talented pianists will take to the stage in mid-October to compete for the Monte-Carlo Music Masters. This competition is reserved for finalists of international competitions, who will compete for a single award, the Prince Rainier III Prize, worth €30,000. After audition rounds around the world, the selected competitors will compete in three rounds in Monte Carlo.
