What you can see in Monaco?
Standing on a rocky promontory and therefore known as ‘le rocher’, picturesque Monaco-Ville is still recognizable as a medieval village, full of small pedestrian streets and old houses. There are many attractions worth visiting, including the splendid marble and gold Prince’s Palace, where the Grimaldi family have resided for centuries. An amazing museum is waiting for your visit: Oceanographic Museum and Aquarium, which has more than 4,000 species of fish. And the Jardin Exotique, home to several thousand rare plants from around the world: a real treasure.
Visit Monte Carlo: the Casino is hugely grandiose on the outside, especially when lit up at night, and equally opulent inside. Its gaming rooms gleam with gold and are bejeweled with chandeliers, stained glass, paintings and sculptures. The most famous hotel in Monaco is just near by the Casino, Hotel de Paris, which has featured in a number of films and celebrities.
Events Happening in Monaco:
Twenty-four teams will contest the Henri Delaunay Cup for the first time following a decision by the UEFA Executive Committee in September 2008. France were awarded UEFA EURO 2016 by the Executive Committee in a decision announced in Geneva on Friday 28 May 2010.
The EURO finals field has risen as the profile of the championship has grown since the inaugural competition took place from 1958 to 1960. From four to eight, to 16 to 24 next time around, almost half of UEFA’s 54 member associations will contest the European crown in 2016.
France played a key role in the founding of the UEFA European Championship. It was the brainchild of a Frenchman, Henri Delaunay, UEFA’s first general secretary from June 1954 to November 1955. The opening final round, featuring four teams, was held in France in 1960, with Paris hosting the inaugural final between the USSR and Yugoslavia on 10 July of that year.
The 2016 tournament will be the third time that a EURO finals has been staged on French soil. After 1960, UEFA took the tournament back there in 1984. It was the hosts who emerged victorious in a wonderful final round which ended with UEFA President Michel Platini, the team’s captain and talisman, brandishing the trophy in triumph at the Parc des Princes in Paris and creating a new championship scoring record with nine goals – including hat-tricks against Belgium and Yugoslavia.
Since then, France have enjoyed yet more glory in front of their own fans, when they won the 1998 FIFA World Cup. Now, the French Football Federation (FFF) will be proud hosts of the 2016 event, with Bordeaux, Lens, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, Saint-Etienne, Nice, Paris and Saint-Denis waiting to greet the football family and each team’s supporters. The FFF joins UEFA, the French government and the host cities as the major stakeholders in UEFA EURO 2016.
