Year round swimming in the sun

St Charles swimming pool will be heated by solar panels from January 2011.

Bateau bus popularity increases

Monaco's solar powered bateau bus continues to be a great success.

Passenger figures at the end of 2009 are expected to be 25% higher than the 120000 that traveled last year. Although it attracts a fair number of tourists disembarking from the cruise ships, it's also popular with locals.

No doubt encouraged by the boat's success, owner Pierre Brezzo will be experimenting with a hybrid boat running between Menton and Monaco in 2010.
