We asked Victor Gee,

Founder of Victor de Monaco blog, where to ex­plore in-and-around Monaco

CONCIERGE – The F1 Inside Track - - BEYOND THE TRACK | EXPLORE -

SIGHT-SEE­ING?

Def­i­nitely a drive fol­lowed by a walk to Tête de Chien to watch the most beau­ti­ful sun­set on the French/ital­ian Riv­iera – and to en­joy a panoramic view of Monaco.

CUL­TURE?

L’opéra de Monte-carlo hosts the most beau­ti­ful artis­tic shows and events in the area.

LIGHT LUNCH?

Café de Paris is a must. You can’t go to Monaco with­out hav­ing lunch there. As for a more re­laxed mo­ment by the sea, I would rec­om­mend Monte-carlo Bay for loung­ing, hav­ing a drink and a light meal. When you go to Monaco you will feel the urge to have pizza/pasta (be­cause of all the Ital­ian vibes around), and fish for ob­vi­ous rea­sons.

PARTY?

I per­son­ally love the Bud­dha Bar and, for a chilled evening, the Monaco Yacht Club has the most beau­ti­ful view of the army of yachts in the port.

RE­LAX?

I love Le Méridien Beach Plaza, it al­ways feels like a zen en­vi­ron­ment. Dur­ing the Grand Prix, I would say some­where out of Monaco be­cause the roar­ing engines and the crowd will be ev­ery­where. So Saint-jeanCap-fer­rat or Cap d’an­tibes are calm and breath­tak­ing.

DAY TRIP?

If you haven’t vis­ited Cannes or Nice then you should. Oth­er­wise San­remo, just over the Ital­ian bor­der.
