Never has the topic of Formula 1 been so hot! Since the phenomenon of the Netflix series “Drive to Survive”, ratings have skyrocketed like never before.
Adding to the buzz of this series was the announcement of the latest race for the 2023 season, Las Vegas. A night race that promises a whole new level of spectacle and excitement!
As we cannot be indifferent to this phenomenon and knowing that Formula 1 is loved by many worldwide, we decided to show you the best destinations that offer spectacular scenery and world-class entertainment.
Here are the top 10 F1 destinations that should be on every fan’s radar this season, presented to you by Holidu, the search engine for holiday rentals.
- Monza, Italy
Taking the first place crown for being the best destination for F1 fans is Monza in northern Italy! The Autodromo Nazionale Monza, also known as the “Temple of Speed”, is the fifth oldest national Grand Prix.
It has over 11,000 reviews on Google and an average rating of 4.6 stars. Emotion is always present here, whether it’s the high speeds this track allows drivers to reach or the dedicated Ferrari fans.
Outside of the race weekend, the circuit allows you to ride around the track by bike, car or van and even offers a go-kart track where you can spend a fun-filled day with the family.
- Monte Carlo, Monaco
In second place we find Monaco. On the Mediterranean Sea, bordered by France, Monaco is known as a millionaire’s playground – complete with luxury hotels, fancy restaurants and huge casinos.
The Monte Carlo circuit, has 4.7 stars and is known for being the slowest on the calendar, but it is also the trickiest to navigate, with tight twists and turns between expensive buildings facing the sea.
Place d’Armes is one of the best and brightest spots for fans; another hotspot is La Rascasse, a bar near the pit entrance.
- Silverstone, United Kingdom
The English circuit secures third place on the podium. The Silverstone circuit has over 15,000 reviews on Google and an average of 4.6 stars, which comes as no real surprise as it always presents itself as one of the favourites on the calendar, whether that’s due to the fast corners or the spectacle it provides year after year.
The Northamptonshire circuit has dedicated family areas, last year it offered coding workshops, electric go-karts and sports zones. The Red Arrows offer even more spectacle with their fantastic flypasts.
Last year, as well as the brilliant entertainment there were musical acts such as Rudimental and Voice UK Anne-Marie judge Anne Marie.
