This weekend in Monaco all eyes are fixed to the court of the Monte-Carlo Country Club. So who is your personal favorite? But if you get tired of watching the game there are a few other things you can do.
Another high profile event this weekend is Top Marques Monaco. This year, an extraordinary edition that promises to light up both the interiors of the Grimaldi Forum and the boulevards of Monaco for four days this spring. The show is the only event in the world where VIP visitors are invited to test drive some of rarest and most coveted cars on the planet on a privatised section of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit. World premiere appearances, state-of-the-art technology and a concern for the environment make Top Marques Monaco a remarkable window onto the world of the luxury supercar industry. For this special 15th edition there will also be a unique exhibition of classic cars, which used to belong to some of the world’s most influential heads of state. Top Marques Monaco is first and foremost a supercar show, but it also features other aspects of a luxury lifestyle including designer watches, bespoke jewellery, VIP helicopters, world premiere superboats and the latest luxury must-haves.
Tickets range between €39 and €120.
