Monaco Grand Prix: A VIP Guide

1st May 2019 // By Alex Martin

The Monaco Grand Prix is far more than a Formula 1 race. Although cars racing around the streets of Monte Carlo at 200mph is the main attraction, there will be a plethora of VIP events and experiences to enjoy throughout race week.

Indeed, the Monaco Grand Prix transcends Formula 1 like no other race and is rightly considered the most glamorous sporting event in the world. Thousands of celebrities, business executives and influencers will join the 20 drivers in the principality on May 26.

For anyone planning to jet into Monaco for the event, Elite Traveler has created a VIP guide detailing where to stay, where to eat and where to watch the race.

Getting to Monaco

With thousands of motorsport fans descending on the nearby airports, commercial flights can be sold out months in advance. Usually, a haunt for the world’s wealthiest, Monaco is well-equipped for the inevitable spike in private jet traffic for race week.

Riviera Airport is offering special packages for private jets during the race weekend (25-27 May). The airport benefits from having no slot restrictions and is located just an hour away in Albenga, Italy.
