The Monaco Grand Prix is not only the biggest event of the city, it is also the biggest event of the Formula 1 calendar.
The circuit winds round some of the most famous streets in motor racing, past the Mairie and the Casino, through the tunnel, and along the front of Port Hercule. These narrow streets offer intimacy for spectators like no other race: rent a balcony or sit at a restaurant or bar at a key part of the track, and you will not forget it. Just the thrill of being at one of the world’s great sporting events makes the race an absolute must. Furthermore, elite travelers, celebrities and VIPs come from far and wide simply for the after parties: Amber Lounge is the favorite with the drivers and other destinations include the Royale, Billionaire and Sea Lounge, the place to be on the Sunday after the last race. But serious fans will spend their time visiting the pit lanes where the real action happens.
