Thinking about heading to the Mediterranean this Summer? The French Riviera offers the ultimate in glitz and glamour.
For the supreme party indulgence why not book your very own luxury charter yacht (called a megayacht charter)for the highly exclusive Monaco Grand Prix taking place May 24-27, 2012. Considered the most glamorous race on the Formula1 circuit, it offers entertainment, parties and celebrity spotting along with one of the most recognized races in the world to make this a super high energy event. Many super yachts have already reserved berthing in anticipation of this highly attended race. Chartering your own mega yacht will surely get you front and center for the action.
Fly in a few days early, Nice is an ideal boarding location for your charter with the Nice International Airport less than 30 minutes away. Once your party is settled in, your first stop could be the glitzy principality of Monaco. For the ladies you will find the top couture shops in the legendary Monte Carlo’s Golden Circle. Browse the house of Chanel, Christian-Dior, Louis Vuitton, Yves St-Laurent and Sonia Rykiel. Visit the famed Italian fashion house of Prada and Salvatore Ferragamo inside Hôtel Hermitage. The casino of Monte Carlo made this city famous and is worth a visit for the historical aspect even if you are not gambler.
The French Riviera is just ONE of the many fabulous locations in the Mediterranean. Please keep in mind that prices in the Med tend to be a bit higher than the Caribbean and most megayacht charters are not inclusive but offer a plus all expenses. This works well if you plan to spend a lot of time ashore where the cuisine is delightful and the wine plentiful.
