Italian Grand Prix, September 2-3, 2017
The Italian GP is one of the most attractive venues in the calendar. There may be circuits that are newer and more technologically advanced, but Monza possesses passion, colour and enthusiasm in abundance.
The circuit is set within Monza Park which is a wonderful setting and the weather is invariably kind. It is a quick circuit, a circuit full of history and a circuit with atmosphere - in a word, magic.
Even without F1, this part of Italy is wonderful. Milan is an exciting city destination in its' own right and the lakes provide a wonderfully relaxing break. Throw in some good weather, fine cuisine and sport or culture, then you have the makings of a superb weekend.
We have been looking after corporate clients, VIP guests and groups for many years and our attention to detail is second to none. Monza is a must-see Grand Prix and your base may be the sophisticated city of Milan, the historically rich town of Bergamo or the magnificent Italian Lakes. We know the Monza area superbly well and are therefore able to advise on the wide array of possibilities. We are able to provide a tour to match any requirements. Please call us for a bespoke quote.

The traffic in Monza used to be manic and the helicopter was the only sensible way in for those who could afford it. This is not so much the case these days but nevertheless, the Grand Prix helicopter shuttle is still a big operation and for many, it is still the way to travel. Flights depart from a number of different areas around Monza and land in the very centre of the circuit.
