The Monaco Historic Grand Prix & Portofino

8 days by Rail, April 19th 2021, from £1399 per person

The 12th Monaco Historic Grand Prix

Play

Slider

This motor racing extravaganza, celebrating its 12th edition in 2021, 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 (£30pp extra), pictured above, 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.
