Summer is almost over but not quite finished yet. Beaches are welcoming late-season visitors and beach clubs all around Monaco still have their doors open, so there's plenty going on in the small Principality.

Music, art and culture all have their place in Monaco in September, so it's a great time to come. Here's a rundown of some of our favourite events taking place this month.

Monaco Open Air Cinema

The first week of September will play host to the last screenings of the Monaco Open Air Cinema, Europe's largest outdoor cinema. With a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, comfortable chairs, stunning views and an incredible 200m2 screen, this has to be the best cinema in the world. Different films are shown every night from a range of genres, which this month includes Tarantino's latest flick, 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood' and Disney's classic 'The Lion King'.

Dalí Art Exhibition

In September, you'll still get the chance to see the exhibition that everybody's talking about this summer, 'Dalí, Une Histoire de la Peinture' at the Grimaldi Forum. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the death of the surrealist painter, there are 100 works on show, from paintings to drawings and photographs. Doors close on September 8th, so you have a week to check it out.

The neighbouring town of Menton, on the border between France and Italy, will turn into a small Buenos Aires thanks to the Ma Ville Est Tango Festival. Three days in which the streets, bars and restaurants of Menton will breathe tango 24 hours. You can join an afternoon tango lesson, enjoy an Argentinian dinner and watch a milonga concert at night.

Art Monaco

Art enthusiasts and those lusting after luxury are invited to satiate their palates at one of the most opulent global art shows to grace the French Riviera. Art Monaco features artists from around the globe, giving you the chance to enjoy the offerings of more than one gallery at a time. With both consolidated and emerging establishments showing some of their most exclusive and innovative collections, this is a rich selection of art to be enjoyed regardless of whether you are a purchaser or just an admirer.

Monte Carlo Gala for the Oceans

This is one for the rich and famous. Hosted by Prince Albert II himself, the Monte Carlo Gala for the Oceans is a charity event in aid of, you guessed it, the oceans. After leonardo DiCaprio and Orlando Bloom, this year, Hollywood star and all-round legend Robert Redford will be the guest of honour. So, even if you don't have the thousands of euros that we're sure a ticket costs, you can head over to the Opera Garnier before the cocktail reception kicks off at 19:00 and catch a glimpse of the glitzy guests.
