Thanks for the great advice Caroline, I really appreciate it.
What to do???
I’m visiting this part of the world for the first time and want to make as much of the very brief time I have there as I can. I’m arriving in the early afternoon of the Friday of the GP weekend and I’m heading out first thing on the Monday morning after the race. I have my tickets for Quali and the Race but would like to take in as much of Nice and Monaco as I can when there is no action on track. I don’t drink (was dropped on my head as a child I think) so I’m not keen to just hang out in a bar. Are there any things that are must see attractions that I can fit into the few hours I have free in the mornings? I was going to spend Friday afternoon looking around Nice (that’s where I’m staying) but I have no plans other than that? Restaurant advice would be good too.
I know the above may be more of a question for Tripadvisor but I thought I’d ask people who here experience with the area at GP time.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Kudos to you!!
I hope someone can share some local Nice accommodation knowledge, I’m in a bit of a bind!
I have my tickets to both quali (K1 high) and race day (K2 high) (thanks for the advice found on here) but I still don’t have any accommodation!!!! Can you recommend any hotels? Which websites should I look and book on? I’m flying into Nice on the 25th and leaving from there early on the morning of the 28th so I’m hoping to stay in Nice for the three nights and was keen to find somewhere near the train station for less than 200 euro a night (I’d like something cheaper if possible). I just need a bed in a clean, secure room, I don’t need ‘bells and whistles’.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
UPDATE: Accommodation booked at a B&B in Nice. I can’t wait be in the stands for my first GP!
