Important information for visitors attending the 2024 Grands Prix

The motor racing season is set to get under way soon, with the 7th Monaco E-Prix on 27 April, followed by the 14th Grand-Prix de Monaco Historique from 10 to 12 May, and the 81st Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix from 23 to 26 May 2024.
If you plan on driving to Monaco to experience these events, you can use the new "Parking des Salines" car park at the western entrance to the Principality, opposite the Exotic Garden. It is recommended to arrive in Monaco via the road known as the "Moyenne corniche".

The new car park has 1,800 spaces, and allows easy access to the circuit at preferential rates:

- via the free shuttle bus (simply show your car park ticket to the driver), departing every 10 minutes from 8 am to 8 pm.

- on foot, via the "Galerie des Salines" . The walk to the circuit takes around 15 minutes.

If you prefer to take full advantage of the landscape, you can travel via three very scenic routes: the Basse Corniche road which hugs the coastline, the Moyenne Corniche road via Eze-Village, or the Grande Corniche road through La Turbie and Col d’Eze, at an altitude of 512 metres.

Access to Monaco's Old Town district is restricted to those whose vehicles are registered in Monaco or the Alpes Maritimes region. In the case of the new French number plates, only those vehicles bearing the Alpes Maritimes regional identifier, whose owners can prove that they live in the region, will be allowed to access the Old Town. Other vehicles will need to park in the Parking des Pêcheurs car park, from which the centre of the Old Town district is just a few minutes’ walk.

Although campervans are permitted to enter the Principality, this is not a mode of transport which is particularly well suited to the country. Parking on the public highway is strictly prohibited. Only the Parking des Ecoles car park in Fontvieille and the Parking des Pêcheurs car park in the Old Town can accommodate such vehicles. You are advised to contact the relevant car park office to check availability.
