Hello, we will be staying in Nice and travelling to Monaco for Grand Prix this yr. Does anyone know what time is the latest train from Monaco to Nice as we would like to go for a dinner and walk around the city. And also, what is the name of the station on Monaco we have to get off? Thanks a lot for your help!

Drivers do sign autographs in the pit lane on Friday afternoon, but it's not a formal thing, they are not obliged to, so don't be disappointed if you don't get any. To enter the pit lane in the first place, you will need a grandstand ticket for the Saturday or Sunday.

There is only one station in Monaco. Check with sncf-voyages.com for train times to Nice after the Grand Prix.

I am also going during the Grand Prix although I am more interested in knowing about a good place to lounge by the beach and what good cafés are around. Thanks.

Try the Blue Note on the beach, ticks your boxes. If you're not interested in the racing you can stay there all day. Hope the weather is kind!

Hi All,

My boyfriend and I will be in Monaco on May 24, 2014 and we were thinking of getting rocher tickets. I was wondering if it is worth getting those tickets or if you can see the race from anywhere else in the city. We would got to a hotel or restaurant but would not be able to pay more than 120$ total for the view. We would pay for food and drinks though. Basically, I would like to know if it is worth going to Monaco for the grand prix without tickets if you want to see the cars and races. Can you see any of it without tickets?

Thank you so much!

Carly

Saturday May 24 is qualifying day. The only actual race that day is the second GP2 race at 16.10.

From the road leading up to Monaco-Ville, Avenue de la Porte Neuve, you may be able to get some of the same view as you would from the Rocher. There is no guarantee of this and in previous years when the final has been a sell-out (it is this year) there have been barriers along there. You will certainly get some of the atmosphere from the far end of that road, hear the noise and see a few dots moving around in the distance.

MOTH - your knowledge is excellent. Thank you for sharing it. I have a quick question, I will in Monaco on the 22nd (Thursday) and it looks like it will be GP2 qualifiers at 16:15. I'd like to sit on the Rocher but there are no tickets for sale, does this mean that you dont need tickets for the Rocher on Thursday? I may up the ante and get a ticket around the chicane, but we'll see. We'll be there on a cruise ship and from what I've read the city is pretty well locked down. Can I just walk to the different sites in the morning, or what would you suggest? Walking 20 km in a day is absolutely no problem at all. Thank you for your expertise.

Hi Eric, the good news is that it would be very hard to walk 20km around Monaco in a day - the country is too small for that - but skirting around the various obstacles of the circuit will certainly be necessary on Thursday 22 May. The other good news is that you will be able to access the Rocher without paying on the Thursday, though the very best places will be taken.

Bear in mind that between 7am and about 7pm the streets of the circuit will be closed, which means you will not be able to access the Casino or the port directly, but the attractions of the Rocher will be open as usual as will the beach and the market at the Place d'Armes.

Generally there are no big cruise ships in the port during the Grand Prix, they tend to divert to Villefranche or other ports, so do check that you will definitely be in Monaco and not somewhere else, or the GP2 qualifying may be outside your curfew. F1 free practice sessions earlier in the day may be a safer bet...

Thank you for this great information! On May 24, 25, will it be possible to walk around the city without tickets? Will there be anything going on outside the barriers of the race? We are traveling in France and Italy and happen to be taking the train through Monaco on the day of the race so we were thinking it would be great to stop there to see what's going on but if everything is closed off without a ticket, then there would be no point.

Thank you!
