Pursuit Top 5 highlights at the Monaco Grand Prix

As the most iconic street race in the world, the Monaco Grand Prix is the epitome of glamour. It is an event that sees Monte Carlo reach a fever pitch of style for the motor event of the year.


Amber Lounge is a Formula 1 icon. While they travel to various F1 locations around the world, it all began in Monaco and 2018 marks their 15th anniversary. This is where to come if you want to be part of the Monaco F1 elite – royalty, drivers, celebrities, they are all here. From Champagne-fuelled after parties and fine dining, to unforgettable entertainment and fashion shows, no Monaco F1 experience is complete without Amber Lounge.

Monte Carlo’s allure hasn’t really changed from the 1920s and nowhere embodies the old school glamour and romance of the principality like Café de Paris. Situated on the bustling Place du Casino, Café de Paris’ charming outdoor terrace is chic and cosy, a welcome refuge from the din of the racing. Enjoy an al fresco breakfast or lunch, or stop in for a legendary Bloody Mary to cure any overindulgences.

Monte Carlo Casino is the undisputed symbol of Monaco. It is a lavish example of belle époque architecture – magnificently imposing – and inside, its gold and marble salles have welcomed the world’s wealthiest to test their luck. Visit after 2pm to take your seat at the gaming tables, but remember no cameras allowed and there is a strict dress code.

Built over 100 years ago, Monaco’s Oceanographic Museum is not only one of its most beautiful buildings and landmarks, it is a fascinating palace of marine science and knowledge. Perched on the cliffs looking out over the yacht-dotted Med below, its exhibitions on natural history and conservation will educate and inspire any visitor, and it also boasts an impressive aquarium.

After all the loud noise and late nights of the Grand Prix, a little peace, quiet and R ‘n’ R will be required. For those chartering a yacht, weigh anchor and head up the coast towards St Tropez’s Pampelonne Beach. Take the tender into one of the many iconic beach clubs; to be seen, head to Club 55, or for a more relaxed vibe, Moorea Plage is the place to go.
