Monaco Skyline Lotus 25 Car

The Monaco Historics has grown into the most exciting week of classic car racing in the World. It’s pure racing, no quarter asked, no quarter was given. From the 1930’s Bugattis, Alfas and ERAs to the Lotus, Tyrells and Ferraris of the '70s, the classes are superb. Overlooking the start/finish line, our superb Hospitality Suite makes sure you don’t miss a thing. Add the glamour of Monaco, great restaurants, private events and racing celebrities, and you have the recipe of a dream trip. Following Monaco, we depart for the Portofino coast and one of the great hotels of Italy, the Cernobio dei Dogi. Plenty of time to relax from the bustle of Monaco in the fishing harbor of Camogli. Pre dinner cocktails and canapes overlooking the Italian coastline, all followed by a gourmet dinner. We have also added two full days in the Maranello/Modena/Bologna area, with visits to the top Italian exotic car manufacturers and private museums. Our busy schedule concludes with a full day in Milan with visits to the museums of Alfa Romeo and Lambretta.

First Class accommodations are hallmarks of this program, top restaurants and dream locations make this an experience of a lifetime.
