I'm planning to go to Monza next year and would love some tips for getting around. We are coming from Chicago and plan a Italian vacation around the race. I think we will try to get a hotel in Milan. Is there good public transportation to the track from there?. What are the best grandstands? Thanks

Hi:
There is public transportation from Milan to Monza. You can take a train from Milan (from two stations, Milano Centrale and Milano Porta Garibaldi, the second one is not the main station but there are more trains from there to Monza) to Monza. The trip is like 30 minutes. From the train station in Monza there are free buses for the people that go to the GP till near the circuit (just near, you have to walk like 20 minutes). Sunday is easier, because there are special free trains from Milano Centrale (the main train station in Milan) till a small station in the second curve of lesmo. The train stops at 150 meters from the circuit and there is an entrance there.

About the grandstands...mmmm.. I don't know. Depend on you really. There is no place where you can see really a lot. Maybe at the beginning of the main straight and the entrance to the parabolica is where you can see more track, but usually there is no much action there. Instead, in every chicane or breaking zone there are grandstands too. If you prefer to see the cars really close, It may be better to buy a general admission ticket. There are many little grandstands all around the circuit and they are closer than the grandstands, but in most of the cases you see less.

You could watch the videos I've made these years. If there is one you think is a good place I can tell you where it is.

Thanks so much for the reply. Good info. How much Italian should I know? I've got plenty of time to at least learn the basics, but wonder if many natives speak English. Since Montreal is back on the calender(hopefully)I have to brush up on my French as well. I'm going to be thoroughly confused.

If you find an Italian that speaks english let me know... it would be the first one... :lol:
Not really... but there are very few that speak english, but if you go to the most touristic places you should not have problems. In the circuit even less, because most of the people are not Italian. Take with you a traveler dictionary and it would be enough (you can buy one here too)

Thanks for the tips hannibal. Anyone know of a reasonably priced hotel in Milan they would recommend. I'm not renting a car so I'm looking for something close to the train stations.
