Taxi's during Monaco Grand Prix and nightlife

So we're planning on going to the grand prix this year in Monaco.

Just wondering, if we were to stay in Nice or Menton, how much would a taxi be from Monaco, and where would we catch it from. I know at some point duirng the night they close the streets off again ready for the next days racing. Last time I was in Monaco (not during the race), I couldn't see any places to catch a taxi except down by the harbour.

Thanks

There are taxi ranks all over Monaco, mainly without taxis on them; you have to call one out from the dedicated phones at each rank. The two where you would normally find taxis actually on the rank are in Casino Square and outside the Fairmont Hotel. Both of these are on the circuit so nothing will be marked but those are the most likely places to find a taxi on the street. Otherwise you must use one of the phones, or your own phone, to call one out.

Expect long waits at this time of year.

Allow about EUR100 to get to Nice, I don't know how much the fare is to Menton.

You can also summon an Uber from across the border. I believe the area immediately behind the upper station exit is a popular place to call from (it's in France). The price is about half in normal times but when demand is high, prices go up.

The streets of the circuit close in the early morning, around 6am
