Accommodation – 2018 Italian Grand Prix at Monza

Filed in Italian F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

The best places to stay for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. The next race is scheduled for August 31 to September 2, 2018.

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 2018 Italian Grand Prix weekend have not yet been released, but here are 2017 prices as a guide: €16 per night for adults, minimum stay 4 nights (+ €16 per night for tent/caravan pitch + €16 per night parking).


San Sesto Giovanni is a northern suburb of Milan, mid-way between the center and Monza. This is a great place to stay for the Italian Grand Prix with plenty of decent hotels and good transport connections (train or bus) to the circuit. Recommended!

Grand Hotel Barone Di Sassj

  • Decent 4-star hotel located just 200m from the Sesto Rondò metro station
  • 10 minutes walk from Sesto San Giovanni train station for easy access to Monza
  • Double room from €140 per night with breakfast

Cosmo Hotel Palace

  • Located in Cinisello Balsamo, midway between Milan and Monza. Also next to Zara metro station.
  • Restaurant and spa on site and free parking for guests
  • Double with breakfast from €200 per night

Grand Hotel Villa Torretta Milano

  • Historic four star villa hotel, air-conditionedrooms with sat TV and internet
  • 5 minute’s walk from Bignami metro stop
  • Superior double from €280 per night

Stay with F1 Experiences at the 2018 Italian Grand Prix

F1 Experiences offers six exclusive ticket packages to the 2018 Italian Grand Prix. We recommend the Trophy package for $1329 USD, which includes a 3-day grandstand seat at Parabolica plus Drive the Track tour, guided tour of the F1 Paddock and Paddock Club party with an F1 legend or current driver! You can also add a four-night stay at the Hilton Milan to your package, which includes daily transfers to and from Monza.


Milan has accommodation to suit all tastes, from cheap downtown hostels to fine 5-star hotels. We recommend staying close to one of the city’s major train stations (Milano Centrale, Porta Garibaldi) or at least close to a metro stop if you want to get to the circuit more easily.

Hostel Colours

  • Cheap & cheerful hostel in the Città Studi district
  • Free WIFI in all public areas and common games room
  • Dorm beds from €25-30 per night including breakfast

Hotel Oro Blu

  • Modern hotel close to San Siro Stadium.
  • Next to Lotto Fiera metro; 8 stops from the center
  • Double rooms from €75 per night

Hotel Delizia

  • Budget hotel, close to restaurants and nightlife.
  • Next to Dateo train station (one stop to Centrale and then to Monza)
  • Double rooms from €100 per night

Hotel Portello

  • Around 600m from a metro station and also walking distance to the famous San Siro staium
  • Modern air-conditioned rooms with free WIFI
  • Double rooms from €135 per night with breakfast

Hilton Garden Inn Milan North

  • Brand new hotel on the north side of the city in the direction of Monza
  • 2-minutes walk from Villa San Giovanni Metro station
  • Double rooms from €190 including breakfast

Grand Hotel et de Milan

  • One of Milan’s grandest hotels, located in the heart of Milan’s exclusive shopping district and close to the city’s best sights.
  • Classic double from €600 per night

Ostello Costa Alta

If you are visiting Monza on a non-race weekend, we recommend staying at Ostello Costa Alta (pictured). This guesthouse is located within Monza Park, just 2 minutes on foot from the opening Variante del Rettifolo corner and makes a great base to explore the park and circuit. Private twin rooms from €75 per night or dorm beds from €20 per night.


Bergamo is definitely worth considering as a base for the Italian Grand Prix, particularly if you are flying in and out of Bergamo (BGY) airport. Accommodation is cheaper and Bergamo is a beautiful city in its own right. The walled old town up on the hill (Città alta) is a great place to unwind after a long day at the track. The downside is you will have a longer daily commute to Monza.
