Here we present you with the best top-of-the-range transport service for all your journeys, from the beginning to the end of your stay.
The birth of the Giraglia Rolex Cup
At the end of the Second World War, relations between the countries that today make up the European Union were still tense and affected by this terrible episode in our history. It was then that France and Italy demonstrated a common desire to rebuild the patriotic ties between their two nations. It was in Paris, in 1952, that three important leaders of the famous Yacht Club (Italian and French) imagined the creation of a regatta on the French Riviera, linking France to Italy, via Corsica, with a starting point in Saint-Tropez. In 1953, the Giraglia Cup launched its first summer event, with around thirty participants. Until 1997, the race was only open to top-of-the-range yachts, then it took on another dimension and began to welcome competitors from all over the world and, at the same time, diversified the categories of boats that could compete.
Faced with the growing scale of the event, the Giraglia Cup joined forces in 2018 with a major sponsor, Rolex. This is when the race will become the Giraglia Rolex Cup as we know it today. The growing reputation of the regatta will allow, over the years, the emergence of new services, which will also develop over time. The most notable impact is in the hotel/restaurant sector, but also in terms of transport, such as car rental with private driver. Kingdom Limousines, which was already well known in the sector, has grown to become one of the most important providers of high-end car rental services.
