CAP D'AIL, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2014) - If Monte Carlo is known as the ultimate destination for hedonistic pleasures, it's no surprise that its annual circus event, the International Monte-Carlo Circus Festival, is the grandest of its kind. And as spectators arrive for the 38th-annual event between January 16 and 26, 2014, no place puts them closer to the action while remaining in the lap of luxury than the Riviera Marriott Hotel La Porte de Monaco.
Located along France's Côte d'Azur on the Cap d'Ail harbor, this Monaco hotel is just a five-minute walk from the circus site. Considering the caliber of entertainment lined up, guests will be glad of the easy distance. From animal acts featuring elephants and horses, to top performers from Moscow and China, to the world's fastest magician, Hans Klok, the International Monte-Carlo Circus Festival attracts the best of the best.
H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie of Monaco presides over the event, which was created in 1974 by H.S.H. Prince Rainier III. Today, the Circus Festival is not only a spectacular 10-day show, it is also the time when the industry's most revered prize, the Clown d'Or (Golden Clown) award, is presented.
