The legendary Monte-Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1856, and since that time its fame and glory are immortal. Throughout the summer, the courtyard of the Prince's Palace becomes the major location for a series of outdoor performances. Leading conductors from all over the world are invited to collaborate with this orchestra.
The location itself is worth visiting, as the royal courtyard is used mainly for official occasions and is rarely open to the public. These summer concerts belong to the kind of experience that should not be missed.
