"La Belle Classe" and 2013 Monaco Classic Week
Monaco Classic Week is a week-long festival held at sea and on shore. It is taking place along the whole of the Quai Antoine 1er until 15 September
A series of events is being organized for Monaco Classic Week by the Yacht Club of Monaco.
The Marlborough Gallery is exhibiting works by Titouan Lamazou until 28 September.
