This motor racing extravaganza, celebrating its 14th edition in 2024, features several short races with cars from each era competing to their limits. In contrast to its modern day counterpart, held a few weeks later, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is far more relaxed, friendlier and accessible. Many of our clients have visited both events, but none were interested in going back to the future – the historique event is their overwhelming favourite.
The Grandstand (reserved seat included) has covered seating and faces inland overlooking the track and pit lane (not in use) near the famous Rascasse corner. This stand has access* to cars and drivers in the harbourside paddock – definitely off limits at the F1 GP. Alternatively, have a Grandstand ticket for Saturday’s practise and for Sunday’s races upgrade to stand K (£50pp extra). Pictured above, stand K overlooks the harbour with views of the cars racing around the harbour after exiting the tunnel. *Grandstand paddock access is subject to racing schedule and any additional security measures in place on the day.

We have recently returned from the Historic Grand Prix and Portofino holiday staying at the Piccolo Hotel. We have completed your relevant questionnaire, but was anxious to compliment you and your company on a break which surpassed our expectations. Customer service from everyone was very professional and all questions answered. Travel arrangements were efficient and the itinerary outstanding and much fuller than anticipated. The Piccolo was a very friendly place with a warm welcome, very clean and there were characters who will always be remembered. Your main asset was Raffaella, her sunny personality ensured 34 strangers became her family and undoubtedly her friends. She reacted with all ages and left no one out. It was a joy to be in her company, and leaving was hard. She has a special place in our family and will always be remembered. If she is supporting any future trips with your company, Please let us know. We are very grateful for a great time Read more “Monaco Historic GP May 2022”
