I went to look for the Monaco grand-prix circuit. Unfortunately there are random buildings all over it, big mess from up close. Yet from a bit further away, Monaco is beautiful.
Departure from Nice early morning
Descending to Monaco
This was an earlier attempt to follow / land on the race track, about as close as you want to get
That building with the blue roof is actually a pool.

Google is definitely ahead in this area although everything looks a bit melted
