La Magie De Monaco
Monaco, the beautiful sovereign city-state located on the French Riviera; surrounded by France and near the Italian border. Locked against the coast by soaring French mountains, Monaco has a climate of its own - balmy and pleasant from Christmas and roasting the rest of the year.
There is no denying Monaco absolutely delivers on the expectations it sets for wealth, luxury, and visual delight. Pristine villas grace the cliffs like billows of whipped cream, azure waters drum a rhythm against the rocks beneath and immaculate yachts bob gently in the marinas.
Monte Carlo has arguably one of the most stunning harbours in the world. What makes it so spectacular? The dramatic cliffs and the multi-million dollar mega-yachts naturally!
When it comes to having a good time, Monte Carlo is something of a playground for the super wealthy. From the Monte Carlo Casino, which boasts countless private rooms, opulent detail and where the most expensive chip costs €200,000, to the fabulous Opera de Monte. Not to mention the countless top restaurants including Le Louis XV, Beef Bar and the Yacht Club, which Jean Michel lists as being among the ‘best’.
The Monaco Grand Prix: One of the social highlights of the year
Every driver wants to win it. Every fan simply aches to watch it. And every socialite, celebrity, ambassador, and tastemaker attends its parties, preparations, and celebrations. It is the Monaco Grand Prix epitome of elite Formula One racing, enhanced by haute couture glamour in an incredibly beautiful setting.
Out of all the Formula One Grand Prix around the world, there has always been something special about the Monaco F1 GP. The circuit itself offers something unique as it is not a dedicated race track but instead drivers have to negotiate the tight, twisty, treacherous streets of the city state. As such, it’s conceived to be the most demanding and dangerous of all the F1 GP’s in the world, with many drivers crashing dramatically.
To drivers and spectators alike, it exemplifies everything that is F1. From the glamour and excess that resonates around the sport, to the high-octane racing and spectacular races that this road course creates. It is an experience unlike anything else. Nearby Nice is also rammed with Monaco lovers when the F1 circus comes to town; in fact, the whole Riviera is!
