The exceptional luxury and thrilling Formula One racing at the Monaco Grand Prix makes it an experience not to be missed.
Each year the rich and famous flood to the sovereign state to sip Champagne and watch the world’s finest drivers take to the streets for the car racing event of the season. The race has been in the sporting calendar since 1929 and its enduring attraction surely stems from its exclusive and now legendary location.
The fascinating circuit has long enthused racing fans and F1-fanatics. At 3.34 km it is the shortest circuit on the racing calendar, with drivers having to change gear on average some 62 times per lap, and Turn 6 (the hairpin), is the tightest, slowest corner in F1.
But there’s so much more to offer than just the racing. This luxurious city comes alive for its famed annual event, with celebrity parties on every corner. Held every evening during the race weekend is the Amber Lounge Party - the place to be. The party is set in the Le Méridien Beach Plaza Hotel and is where Princes and Princesses mingle with Hollywood stars and sporting heroes, while iconic artists perform exclusive live performances, all preceded by the eagerly anticipated Friday night charity fashion show.
One of the finest spots to watch all the racing action but also make the most of this stunning locale, with its picture-perfect views, is on the 7th Floor of the Ermanno Palace.The suite offers exceptional panoramic viewing where you can watch the cars accelerate from the start/finish line, stream around the corner at St Devote and roar away up the hill before disappearing into Casino Square. Keep up with the action on the huge screen opposite or on television inside the hospitality facility, before the cars come into sight again as they emerge from the Grand Hotel Tunnel, fly down to the chicane and along the harbour front into the swimming pool complex. Viewing from the ITC Sports Travel hospitality suite here will ensure you leave Monte Carlo with unsurpassable memories of your weekend.
If sipping Champagne from the deck of a luxury yacht is more up your street we’ll also be offering all the glamour with our yacht hospitality package. From our luxury 45m tri-deck super yacht, moored trackside, you can watch the Grand Prix in the most fashionable and luxurious of surroundings. Resplendent hospitality, including quality food, open bar, high tea plus an invite to the exclusive onboard party on Friday have also been arranged.
But if it’s more of a luxury holiday with the Grand Prix included, rather than just the racing, that you’re after you could also join us for seven nights of superb indulgence aboard Silversea’s Silver Spirit. The luxurious voyage, exclusive to our clients, will wend its way from Barcelona to Rome, taking in Cannes, Corsica and of course Monte Carlo en route.
Whichever of the ITC Sports Travel packages you choose you’ll be guaranteed the thrilling combination of unrivalled views of the racing alongside so much more; including VIP party passes to the Amber Lounge, gourmet dining, official programmes, executive transfers and, of course, Champagne on tap!
