As Monaco gears up for the 75th anniversary of The Grand Prix, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo, located directly above the slowest and most dangerous turn on the track, provides guests with the best views of the race from the Dom Pérignon Lounge, guest room balconies and outdoor terrace of the Michelin-starred Restaurant Joël Robuchon.
The hotel’s most spectacular view comes from behind the wheel of an F1 racecar, which guests can experience through Metropole’s Get Dizzy With Speed Package.
This exclusive “Just For You” experience puts guests in the driver’s seat of an F1 racecar, where they zoom from 0 to 186 mph in less than three seconds. To ensure a smooth ride around the Circuit du Luc track in Provence, guests first take a workshop led by a certified Formula 1 driver.
