There is a good chance that my wife and I may go to the GP there next year to cross off one more thing on the bucket list.
Any suggestions on where to sit and about how much the tikkys (US) are?
We found a smoking deal on a cruise, but the boat will only be there for Sundays race, and the rep says they dock within walking distance, but I'll have to supply my own seating.
Opinions from any attendees would be very welcome.
Thanks!
David

Not quite sure it's worth the coin, TBH. That's why I'm askin'
As discussed with JP, the last deal I had was Jamaica vs. the Stones in Vegas.
Went Jamaica mon, just got back, rocked except for the air trip part. Saw racing highlights, but kinda bummed I missed out on Sonoma.

Went this year. Yes, it's worth it (understatement of the century)

Just do it.

I can PM you some (much) more detailed tips if you like.

I have been there. We were sitting facing the harbour (grandstand M) and the boats were also great to watch.

Watching the race is challenging, because the cars are visible only for a few seconds at a time. Hard too keep up and a screen is a must to follow the race. That being said, Monaco was an incredible experience! The sound of F1s running between buildings is unbelievable, the atmosphere is something else.

If I was in Monaco for that Sunday, I would definetly get (good) tickets. The cost will be about €500 p.p.
