    School Holidays

    Expect increases in tourism during all of the school holidays. Expect the beaches to be much busier with plenty of children and teenagers crowding the beach and markets during these dates.

    Monaco School Holidays

    Here is the official school schedule calendar from the Monaco government.

    In Monaco, during school vacations, many Monaco residents leave to vacation at other destinations along the French Riviera or elsewhere around the world. Monaco fills up, instead, with tourists from France.

    French Riviera School Holidays

    To alleviate holiday traffic and crowded resorts, education authorities are divided into three geographic zones, with staggered winter and spring holiday periods. The French Riviera is in Zone B. Here is the government’s official website listing the holiday dates.
