The 3.337km Circuit de Monaco is set up along regular everyday roads with sharp corners and very little chance of overtaking, which makes it one of the most difficult Formula One circuits. Drivers require extreme skill and concentration and there is no room for error. Formula One fans who would like to experience the route taken by the Grand Prix can sign up for a 30 or 60 minute Ferrari Driving Experience tour or hop aboard the City Tour Le Grand Monaco Tour bus which follows the route.
