The Monaco Historic Grand Prix & Portofino

8 days by Rail or Air, May 8th 2024, from £1699 per person

The 14th Monaco Historic Grand Prix

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 (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, upgrade to stand K (£50pp extra), pictured below, overlooking 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.

Depart from your chosen airport, or choose an early morning, escorted departure from St Pancras by Eurostar to Lille or Paris (station transfers included), continuing by TGV train to Nice. On arrival transfer to our overnight hotel in or near Nice.

Day 4: San Remo
Today we have an excursion to The Mediterranean resort of San Remo, said to be the Monte Carlo of Italy due to its famous casino, and also known as the City of Flowers for its colourful summer blooms. Here we have a guided walking tour followed by free time. Dinner and free drinks at the hotel.

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”

Just a short belated note to inform you how much my wife and enjoyed our holiday -The weather was outstanding and Raffaella was amazing - not only very efficient but amusing too and she had a good sense of humour. Our driver Vincenze was excellent , too. The hotel was also first class along with the meals and free drinks and nothing was too much for the friendly staff.
