For true racing enthusiasts, attending the Italian Grand Prix in Monza is an absolute must. The Italian Grand Prix race first happened way back in 1921 near Brescia, but was moved to Monza the following year, and this is one of only three remaining inaugural formula 1 grand prix races (with the others being the races in Monaco and Belgium). This race takes place on one of the fastest tracks in Europe, at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, which has long been known for its long straights and high speeds, making this an incredibly exciting destination for F1 fans.
Steeped in history, and taking place in the beautiful Royal Park of Monza (twice the size of Central Park and surrounded by a 12k long wall), just a short distance from Lake Como, the destination is spectacular, and the 2015 Italian Grand Prix should prove to be an incredible sporting event.
Monza is just 30 minutes from Milan, Italy’s second biggest city, home to the Italian stock exchange, and a world renowned fashion and shopping destination. There are also fabulous restaurants, bars, clubs, and of course a rich history to explore throughout the city. Leonardo Da Vinci’s mural The Last Supper is in Milan, at the the Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie, as is opera house La Scala, and a visit to the city’s grand Gothic cathedral, the Duomo, is a must. Milan is breathtaking for so many reasons, and being able to explore while attending an event as prestigious as the Italian Grand Prix creates an unforgettable travel experience.
For those wishing to get as close to the action as possible, Roadtrips offers VIP experience packages that gives sheer luxury and a chance to watch the race with the grand prix elite, and those who follow the circuit (expect to see Italian royalty and celebrities from Europe and beyond). With this, you get to experience the race from the premium hospitality paddock which not only gives you the best views of the race start and finish, but also incredible food and champagne, and potentially pit tours and driver appearances. If you want the very best experience possible at Monza, this is where you’ll find it.
Once you’ve visited Monza, and experienced the excitement and passion of the fans at the Italian Grand Prix, this is going to be an event you’ll want to come back to year after year. It is certainly one of our favourite racing events to attend, and never disappoints.
