Getting to and from the Monza Grand Prix Circuit

Introduction  |  Circuit details  Transportation  |  Accommodation  |  Results

The Monza racing circuit is located at the small town of the same name, about 16 kms (10 mi) north east of Milan, and access to the track from Milan is easy.

By car from Milan, use the A1 and A4 motorway, turning off onto the S36 local road that leads directly to Monza. Clear signs to the track will be posted prior to race weekend. Drive time is less than 30 minutes and car rentals are easy to procure in Milan or at either airports. There is plenty of parking at the Monza racing circuit; however, it does not come cheap and permits needs to be purchased ahead of time. Also, the narrow roads that lead to the racing circuit are notorious for backing up during race weekend, so either get there early or use public transportation to avoid traffic jams.

The trip by train from Milan Central Railway station to Monza Station (or in Italian, Stazione di Monza), takes only 15 minutes. There is a free shuttle bus service from the Monza Station to the race track’s Vedano Gate. Monza can also be easily reached by train from other major Italian cities, such as Verona, Turin, Como and Florence. Weekend train schedules change significantly, so checking train timetables is very important.

For international travellers, Milan Malpensa Airport, 40kms (25mi) north-west of Milan, services international flights into Italy. Access to Milan from the airport is easy using the Malpensa Express train, which provides cheap and efficient access to the city centre. There are also other shuttle buses and taxis available. From Malpensa Airport, the track is about 50kms (31mi) away. There is also a second airport, Linate Airport, just to the east of Milan, which hosts both domestic Italian and European flights. The number 73 bus provides a direct link to Milan’s city centre. Linate Airport is located only 20kms (13mi) from the Monza racing circuit and can easily be reached by taxi.

For those without budget constraints, there is also a helicopter service to the track from Milan, which lands on the heliport inside the racing circuit.
