Monte Carlo Formula 1 Track
Vacation Travel Guide

Every year, these winding city streets host the annual Monaco Grand Prix, said to be one of the toughest races in the Formula One calendar.

Watch from the sidelines as professional drivers race around the Monte Carlo Formula One Track, the route that some call the world’s most difficult grand prix. The twisting streets of Monaco are tricky for the drivers, but undeniably thrilling for the viewers. Visit when the Grand Prix is not running and follow the course through town to see some of the principality’s most recognizable sights.

The first Monaco Grand Prix took place in 1929. View the circuit now seen as one of the most famous and prestigious courses in the sport. All of Formula One's biggest names, from Senna to Schumacher, have sped around the tight corners of Monte Carlo's roads.

If you’re in town during the glamorous event, watch the high-speed action as it unfolds. The circuit starts at Place Sainte-Dévote and winds around Monaco Harbour. Book tickets to get seats on one of the grandstands along the course.

Every two years, the same course hosts a much different set of cars for the Historical Grand Prix. Admire the engineering of vintage motors as they race around a circuit usually used by cutting-edge racing cars.

Visit outside Grand Prix season and drive at much slower speeds along the roads that make up the circuit. As you cruise along the route, look for iconic sights such as the Casino Monte-Carlo, the Prince’s Palace and Monaco-Ville, which can be seen from the quay. The road is also open to the public on the Friday before the races, although the route gets particularly busy at this time.

While in Monaco, examine the royal family's collection of vintage cars. The Private Collection of Antique Cars is open to the public and has an admission fee. Find it next to Fontvieille Harbor. Explore the automobile displays, which include close to 100 classic models.

The Monaco Grand Prix takes place on the Monte Carlo Formula One Track in May every year. Tickets for the event sell out quickly, as do accommodations during this time. Book them both far in advance.
