Monte-Carlo Spring Arts Festival is a classical music festival that takes place every year in the Principality in early spring. The concerts take place in several concert halls in Monaco as well as unusual venues, like the oceanographic museum of the "parking des pêcheurs" car park. Guests and musicians from all over the world have come to perform there, including the greatest orchestras in Europe. Founded at the request of Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace, the festival soon made a name for itself and is remarkable for its broad scope and varied line-up. Their Royal Highnesses Prince Albert and Princess Caroline continue to support the cultural vitality of the Principality.
