You can pretty much forget about staying in a hotel in the town of Monza itself for the Italian Grand Prix. It’s a small town and all the best local accommodation is reserved each year for the teams and track workers. If you do want to stay locally, then camping is the way to go unless you want to pay inflated prices for average rooms. Your next best option is to stay in nearby Milan, just 15km to the south. Don’t discount staying further afield; pretty Bergamo or even near Lake Como are worth considering.


Camping Autodromo is the official trackside camping at Monza, located right next to the first corner. It’s a year-round site located in the north of Monza park with good amenities and reasonable prices. Camping Autodromo also sets up a second camping site for the Grand Prix called the Esterna GP Village, which is located near the Lesmo entrance at the top of the circuit. Prices for the 2016 Italian Grand Prix weekend are as follows: €16 per night for adults, minimum stay 4 nights (+ €16 per night for tent/caravan pitch + €16 per night parking).

San Sesto Giovanni Accommodation

When we last visited the race in 2014, we stayed in the San Sesto Giovanni suburb in the north of Milan. Mid-way between the center of Milan and Monza, this area is only around 5km from the circuit.
