Ahead of a busy month for motorsports in the Principality, the Monaco Government has announced a series of preferential rates for drivers who use the new Salines carpark. Free shuttle services will also be on offer. 

First will come the Monaco E-Prix on 27th April, then the Historic Grand Prix of Monaco between 10th and 12th May and finally F1’s legendary Monaco Grand Prix from 23rd to 26th May. 

With three big back-to-back events set to draw thousands of spectators to the Principality, the Monaco Government will be putting the recently opened Parking des Salines in the Jardin Exotique neighbourhood to good use, and has announced a number of special rates for the three weekends.

The vast parking lot, which offers close to 1,800 parking spaces, is ideally situated for drivers heading into the Principality via the Moyenne Corniche.  

Thanks to the pedestrianised Galeries des Salines, fans will be able to reach the circuit in less than 15 minutes on foot, but there will also be a free shuttle service, provided passengers can show a valid parking ticket, for those who want to save their energy for the races. 

The shuttles will be departing the carpark every 10 minutes between 8am and 8pm on the race days, stopping first on the Avenue Albert II before heading to Place d’Armes and the bus stop closest to the famous circuit. Return journeys will also be possible. 

“Parking at Salines will allow people to avoid the intense traffic that comes with these kinds of events,” say government sources, “while also benefiting from reduced carparking fees.” 

It can cost €24 to park in the majority of Monaco’s public carparks for four to 12 hours during these events, but drivers can expect to pay less than half that – €11 – if they choose Salines. 

On Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May, the weekend of the Monaco Grand Prix, drivers will have to dig a little deeper, but Salines remains the cheapest option. On these two days, drivers who drop their cars off before 3pm will have to pay €20 here instead of the €25 demanded by other facilities for three or more hours of parking.
