Staying in Monte Carlo itself for the Grand Prix is out of reach for most fans, but nearby Nice is a good compromise. This stunning city has accommodation to suit all budgets and is just a short train ride from Monaco. Speaking of trains, you can also easily reach Monaco from Menton to the east or even over the border in the Italian Riviera (Ventimiglia). Transport in and out of Monaco over the race weekend is frequent, with cheap options by rail and road.
Trackside luxury in Monaco
There are only a handful of hotels within the principality, most of which are in high demand and priced accordingly on Grand Prix weekend. Luckily there are some equally good hotels at more reasonable prices across the hill in Fontvieille. F1 Experiences offers rooms at the Columbus Monte Carlo and Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo for the 2021 Monaco Grand Prix.

Staying in Nice for the Monaco Grand Prix
The atmosphere in Nice is vibrant on Grand Prix weekend. You won’t feel like you’re missing out by not being in Monaco, because the die-hard F1 fans stay here! If you have a little more time to spare, we highly recommend Nice as a tourist spot in its own right. With a beautiful old town, stunning beaches and plenty of history and culture, it’s worth taking an extra few days to explore the city and surrounds.
Menton, Ventimiglia & Beyond
There are towns small and large dotted along the Mediterranean cost near Monaco, both on the French side and the Italian side. Menton (pictured above) is a pretty village just 10km east of Monaco. A little further away, the first town on the Italian side is Ventimiglia (and Sanremo is not too much further). You will find lots of F1 fans in these towns on Grand Prix weekend, and there are trains and buses to get you to the circuit. Prices are also significantly lower than in Nice. Finally, don’t discount camping just because it’s the Monaco Grand Prix. You will also find some beautiful campgrounds along the coast with good access to Monaco-bound trains.
