    Things To Do

    Monza

    Monza has a rich past, spanning the length of history itself. The oldest standing structure in the city is Porta d'Agrate, the remaining sections of the walls and fortifications of the city. There are many fine examples of Catholic architecture, including the 14th century Cathedral of St John, Santa Maria in Strada, The Arengario and the facinating Expiatory Chapel of Monza.

    Most noticeable to the motor racing tourist is the Royal Villa, of which the parkland is the very same area in which Autodromo di Monza is located. This spectacular palace was completed in 1780 whilst Lombardy was still part of Austria, and was the home to the Archduke Ferdinand.

    Milan

    The bustling cosmopolitan city of Milan hosts the majority of travelling race goers over the period of the Italian Grand Prix. There is something for everyone here, whether a fan of arts, culture, food, shopping or even the second local religion - football. Whilst this is a limited selection, a few highlights are:

    • Climb the roof of the Duomo Cathedral and take in the Panorama of the city
    • Explore the grounds and museums of the Castello Sforzesco
    • Visit the spectacular Milan Centrale Station
    • Catch a game or stadium tour at the San Siro, home of AC Milan and FC Internazionale (Inter Milan)
    • Ride the street trams
    • Shopping in the city centre, especially in the premium Galleria Vittorio Emanuele
    • ...and whilst there, don't forget to spin your heel on the bull in the centre of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, it's said to bring good luck!

    Lake Como

    The picturesque Lake Como and Lake Lecco are a beautiful expanse of water surrounded by the Alps. It's home to the stars and celebrities of the world, including most famously George Clooney. The pearl of the lakes is the small town of Bellagio, where you can sit outside a quite cafe and watch the world of privilege quietly pass you by.

    Weather

    Whilst not as hot as the south of Italy, Lombardy is known for its warm early autumns. Whilst it averages 25 degrees, it's not unknown for it to be hotter, including 36 degrees on the race weekend in 2016.
