I recently got back from an amazing vacation in Europe. We went to Nice, Monaco and Rome. With the Monaco Grand Prix coming up this weekend, I wanted to share a few photos of the preparations in Monaco with you. Monaco is an a beautiful principality that is on the French Riviera. There is a glamourous lifestyle there and the nation is quite picturesque, in every direction.
Monaco has about 38,000 permanant residents and it is the second smallest nation in the world (after the Vatican). Monte Carlo hosts the famous Grand Prix every year and while we were there, we were able to see many of the preparations for this iconic race.
To see this principality prepare for the Monaco Grand Prix was really great. We actually walked the entire course over a few days. The 72nd Annual Grand Prix is this coming weekend. The bleachers were set up for ticket holders and the thousands of people who come into the area for the race.
Oh and of course you can also watch it from your yacht if you have one. If you do not have one, you can arrange to rent a space on one for the race.
Prices for this start at $1800 Euros per person. (That's about $2500 in US Dollars). That would be for a smaller yacht. There are also come bigger ones like these. I cannot even imagin how much one of these would cost for the day.
The Monaco Grand Prix is one of the most difficult car races. Of course hairpin turns like this one, would not be easy at a slow speed...
There were lots of historic formula one cars preparing for the historic race. This race ran a couple of weeks ago. It was really a treat to see all of the historic classic automobiles.
Monaco was amazing and we really enjoyed the aquarium, casinos and oh the food! I will be sharing more about our trip soon. Now that I have seen the circuit, I am going to watch the race for the first time this year. I will be taping it since it starts at 4:30am Pacific Time. Will you be watching the Grand Prix this Sunday?
