Where to stay for the 2021 Italian Grand Prix

The best places to stay for the 2021 Italian Grand Prix at Monza on September 10-12, including camping, local accommodation and the best hotels in Milan.


Support the future development of F1Destinations by reserving your accommodation (with free cancellation) through the Booking.com links on this page. We also recommend adding accommodation to your Official Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences.

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 very high 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.

Monza Camping

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 2019 Italian Grand Prix weekend have not yet been released, but you can find out more here.

Where to stay in Sesto San Giovanni

Sesto San 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!

Where to stay in Milan

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.

Where to stay in Bergamo

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, which is a major Ryanair hub. 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. Browse all Bergamo accommodation for the 2021 Italian Grand Prix.

  1. Hi Andrew,

    We’re staying in Varenna on Lake Como for our trip to the GP.

    Planning on taking the train from Varenna-Esino to Monza and then taking advantage of the shuttle buses to the track – we have general admission tickets for the weekend.

    Any advice or recommendations?


    1. hi we are also staying in varenna for a week and taking in the GP. we are looking at going to biassimo lesmo saturday and sunday, saturday is fine but sunday we will have to go to milan and the back upto biassimo and there are no trains from monza. we did stressa to biassimo last year and found the special GP train great , the station is next to the track…. so you’re straight in –after queing, looking at the trains there are special day passes you can buy 13 euro- note no ticket office or machine at varenna station, you have to go to the local shop 700m away or as we are doing buy the day passes online before traveling..

      see you on the platform in varenna :)

  2. Hi Andrew,

    I’m a Brit living in Italy and have friends who have a beautiful private Villa just 1 hour drive from the Monza track. It makes a lot of sense particularly if you’re a group, family or even part of the race organisation to base yourself in a quaint and tranquil little village with views out to the Alps. The Villa is a short hop from the major arteries leading directly to the circuit and provisions can be made for a helipad nearby if the local authorities are given advance notice.
    Anyway here is the AirBnB link should anyone want to take a further look and even book as many are now starting to seek alternative forms of accommodation for the entire annual Monza racing calendar as its cheaper, makes a lot of sense logistically and provides privacy in a serene characteristic setting.
