SOLD OUT! Saturday 23rd February – Visit to the car collection of H.S.H. Prince Albert of Monaco  and lunch in Monaco Ville


Dear Members and Friends,

In the late 1950s, Prince Rainier III, who was passionate about cars, began to collect vintage vehicles. Over the years, as acquisitions were made, the collection grew and very soon the garage at the Prince’s Palace proved too small to house the hundred or so beautiful cars. In 1993 Prince Rainier III decided to unveil his treasures to the public.

Located on the Terrasses de Fontvieille, this remarkable exhibition brings together almost a hundred cars of all ages, produced by the top European and American manufacturers, as well as six coaches belonging to H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco.

This exhibition, covering an area of 5,000 m2 and unlike anything else in the world, features a 1903 DE DION BOUTON, 2013 LOTUS F1 makes and models such as HISPANO SUIZA, ROLLS ROYCE, LINCOLN, FACEL VEGA, DELAGE, DELAHAYE, PACKARD, HUMBER, NAPIER, FERRARI, MASERATI, LAMBORGHINI, ALFA ROMEO, the LEXUS from the 2011 Royal Wedding, and more.

Also on display are racing cars, which have competed in the Rallye de Monte-Carlo and the Monaco F1 Grand Prix. See more HERE.

Time: 11:00 a.m. Please meet outside the entrance to the museum.

Following the museum visit, we will walk to l’Orangerie, founded in 2015. The owner, Philip Culazzo, a Dubliner with French and Italian heritage will show us how the organic product is made from Monaco grown oranges. After a tasting, we will take the bus (bring a €2 coin for the bus) to Monaco Ville and enjoy a 3 course lunch in a charming local restaurant, l’Aurore sur le Vieux Rocher

Enrico and Luca will welcome us with an aperitif and Pissaladière, followed by:
