COINCIDING WITH THE MONACO HISTORIC GRAND PRIX
The perfect blend of gentility, glitz, hedonism, and top-rank motorsport, Monaco provides the perfect backdrop for RM Sotheby's biennial Monaco auction. Held at the glamorous Grimaldi Forum, a venue synonymous with the principality's most prestigious events, the Monaco auction takes place alongside the legendary Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, making for a weekend ripe with automotive excitement. Last year's auction exceeded €27.5 million and was topped by the sale of the 1951 Ferrari 340 America Touring Barchetta, which achieved an astounding €7.280.000.
In between the auction and other thrilling events taking place during the packed Formula 1 weekend, think about pre-booking a table at one of the trackside restaurants, the most famous of which is La Rascasse, on the corner of the same name. Or try for a spot on the terrace at the Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo, the Hôtel de France, or the Port Palace. If you want the full Monaco experience, spend some time at the casino and then the legendarily glamorous Jimmy'z Monte-Carlo nightclub—it'll be an experience you'll never forget.
