Nice to Monaco for F1

My son and I are going to the F1 in Monaco.

We will be staying in Nice and will train to Monaco and back.

With it being a busy time do any of you have experiences that you can share to ensure we are not stranded and miss any of the races etc.

Just be prepared for a crush - the population of Monaco is just 30,000 people and the F1 is attended by another 30,000. Leave plenty of time to get there - the trains in are very crowded, forget the bus, they are all rerouted because so many roads closed. Make sure all valuables are secure under clothing while travelling - pickpocketting is rife anywhere there are crowds and wealthy tourists. Getting out is worse because its not so staggered, just follow the crowd and take all in your stride. You and your son will have enjoyed an unforgettable experience.

Over the four days of racing, our population is boosted by about 200,000 - that's 37,000 each day on the circuit, and the others on terraces, balconies, boats on the harbour... There is room for all, and Monaco copes exceptionally well with the crush. The combination of high police presence and serious penalties ensures there are very few crimes committed on Monegasque soil, even at such a busy time, but you do need to watch yourself as you leave.

As NiceLife says, it will be unforgettable... Enjoy!
