Hire a yacht on the French Riviera for the Monaco Grand Prix

The Monaco Grand Prix is an amazing spectacle which runs every year. It is regarded as the most difficult of all the Formula 1 courses in the season. Every year it is sure to attract thousands of tourists to Monaco and millions of viewers across the globe. Many people like to hire a yacht for this occasion and soak up the speedy atmosphere as the cars whizz around the port Hercules. It truly is one of the best, if not the best event and party of the year on the Cote d’Azur. Many people buy a one day ticket, Sunday being the most popular day for the Monaco Grand Prix final. Others buy a weekend ticket and take the chance to explore Monaco and the surrounding area, Saint Tropez and Cannes if a whole weekend of fast paced cars gets a bit too much! There are options for everybody. There are 5 star hotels which are out of this world for the high end of the market and there are some more affordable hotels available for those within a budget. Others choose the luxury of a charter yacht and either reserve a berth in the port (a service 212 Yachts can arrange) at the heart of all the activity, while other yacht prefer to drop anchor and keep distance from other yachts, hence less noisy and more private.

Monaco Grand Prix Accommodation

The beautiful area of Circuit de Monaco is situated on the waterfront of Port Hercule in Monte Carlo. It has earned the city of Monaco a reputation as the most glamorous Formula 1 location. Monte Carlo is hugely dependent on tourism and therefore has many hotels situated close to the circuit. However, these hotels may come at a big price and some might find them too expensive. An alternative may be to stay in Nice. This is where the nearest international airport is. It has a lot more options available to all sorts of budgets and is easy to get to and from Monaco.
