The Monaco Grand Prix is, arguably, Formula 1’s most famous event. Seeing it live is on the bucket list for many motorsport enthusiasts. The sport has visited Monaco in almost every season since the first year of the modern World Championship in 1950 and, while the buildings have multiplied and the track has undergone minor changes, the essence of tight street racing between the barriers has remained the same. The Monaco Grand Prix is the eighth round of the season in 2024, with this year marking the circuit’s 70th appearance on the Formula 1 calendar.

How Much Does it Cost to Attend the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix?

The 2024 Monaco Grand Prix is the second of three events held as part of the latest contract extension between Formula 1 race and race organisers. Ticket prices in Monaco have risen by around 30% in recent years. However, while the event used to be the most expensive to attend of the season, ticket prices at the new American races in Miami and Las Vegas have seen the principality’s race slip down the list of F1’s most expensive weekends. The Monaco Grand Prix is now the fourth most expensive on average, dropping behind the aforementioned Miami and Las Vegas races, plus the Mexico City Grand Prix.

We estimate that the average fan will spend around €1,830 on a trip to the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix. That includes three day grandstand tickets, a three night stay in a hotel in Nice, plus spending money. Check out our Budget Planner for the lowdown on what you can expect to spend while attending the Monaco Grand Prix.

Getting to Circuit de Monaco

The good news for fans attending the Monaco Grand Prix is that the principality is relatively easy to get to and transport is relatively cheap. Trains are the recommended way of getting to the circuit, but buses and self-driving are also viable options. There are detailed tips for fans travelling from Nice, Menton and other popular areas near Monaco over in our Getting There Guide.

Trackside at the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix

In 2022, in a break from tradition, the Monaco Grand Prix fell into line with the other races on the calendar by holding its opening Formula 1 practice sessions on Friday instead of Thursday. That will be the case again at the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix, though there will be practice sessions for support races on Thursday.

After a successful debut last year, Formula 3 joins the series which will be racing at the Monaco Grand Prix once again in 2024. Last year was the first time that the third rung of Formula 1’s junior ladder had raced on the streets of the principality since 2012. Formula 2 and Porsche Supercup are the other support categories on offer this year and both promise to bring as much drama as they have in previous years!

The fanzone will host on-stage interviews with the F1 drivers, with all 20 likely to make appearances over the race weekend. It’s always worth sticking around on an evening at the circuit too, as you’ll see the track transformed into a party scene! You can find all the vital information about watching the race, including session times and access points, on our updated Trackside page.

    We are attending on Sunday with grand stand tickets. Can we bring our own food and drinks with us?

  3. Hi
    Can you just clarify who is able to take advantage of the pit walk on the Friday afternoon please?

    Thank you

    1. Should be anyone with a weekend ticket for the race, but you may be able to still do it without – after all the weekend ticket holders have been let through.

  4. This will be my first time in Monaco and I was wondering what your recordation for food that weekend? I will only be attending Saturday and was hopeful for some advice.

    1. Monaco has everything, from McDonalds to high-end restaurants. You also have places set up on the street serving sandwiches etc, as well as several large supermarkets. You didn’t really say what kind of recommendations you were looking for? If it’s a restaurant, you will need to make a booking if it is a good one and close to the circuit.
