Monza

Monza is in Lombardy, 15 km north-east of Milan. It is the capital of the Province of Monza and Brianza.

The race track Autodromo di Monza

Get in

Monza is well connected with Milan by train (from Garibaldi and Centrale stations) and by ATM bus line 723, 724, 722. Both train and buses arrive very close to city centre.

To come to Monza by car from east or west you should take A4 highway (Turin-Milan-Venice) and exit "Monza", from north the Milan-Lecco expressway (ss36) which ends in the town. From south you'd better take Milan's "tangenziale nord", which starts from "tangenziale est" and then Monza exit.

To arrive by plane, please refer to Milan#By plane.

Get around

TPM operates a small public transportation network, you are supposed to buy tickets in advance and validate it once your trip starts. Tickets are urban and inter-urban (for travellers willing to cross city border) and both are valid for 60'.

The public transportation network is not used so much by "Monzese" people because of the small dimensions of the city. Reaching the centre by foot from the periphery will take you about 30'.

Bike are heavily used by Monza inhabitants and there's a nice ring of bike-reserved lanes on the banks of Villoresi Canal.
