Let's face the reality. Monaco is not the most exciting place for teens ! But if you are a parent of a teen sprawled on the couch with his smartphone all the week-end, we've got some options, do not despair !
Teens are often very creative. But you may have abandoned the ceramic or pastel workshops for a while. Why not offering them a photo shoot with a theme : sea, nature, buildings, dogs, etc. Or a teaser on a theme they choose ? It could be fun ! And also, even if they are (or think they are!) grown up, if you buy canvas, brushes, pencils, oil painting or even clay, you could be surprised ! You can also offer them to go to the museum with you (did I say "force them ?")
Try to take him or her out for fresh air : skating on the Larvotto,, iceskating on port Hercule, jogging on Sentier des Douaniers (you have to be very persuasive!), riding a bike in Bordighera, discovering Seborga, etc. Be inspired !
Théâtre des Muses, Théâtre Princesse Grace, TNN (Nice), you'll be surprised by the nice drama shows in the area...
Check cinema sessions, from Menton to Nice, you may find a movie they like ! Or stay at home, and show them one of your favorite movie (perhaps, avoid the black and white ones.)
You would have to go to Nice. but this will be for sure a hit with your teenager. We tried Aventure06, just of the promenade des anglais and had a great time. They have 3 different rooms ( the easiest one being Al Capone) and price is 20 EUR per adult and 15 for children.
LAST TIP !
Invite one of their friend (several friends would be even better but we are not all saints !) to share this activities and you will notice that everything will be easier !
If you have others ideas, please let us know as we are mothers of teens too !
