The Monza Park

With its 685 hectares it is the largest penned park in Europe, with a fourteen kilometre perimetral wall. It is the green lung for Monza and the surrounding territory.

 

Known to the world mainly because of the Formula 1 Grand Prix race in the nearby autodrome, it also has spectacular natural landscapes.
The park, founded in 1805 by Napoleon Bonaparte’s stepson Eugene de Beauhaurnais, viceroy of Italy, was designed by Luigi Canonica, a pupil by the Piermarini who built the neighbouring ‘Villa Reale’.

 

 


In this historical park, through which the Lambro river flows, there are forests, meadows, farmlands, villas, farmsteads, and even a racetrack and golf course.

The park can be explored by foot, skateboard, bicycles or horseback. There are also two ingenious transport services available: a mini electric train that runs through the park (from Porta Monza - 1, 5 euros) and a coach (5 euros on Saturdays and Sundays – but only in spring and summer).

 

There are several different itineraries:

  • THE PARK AND VILLAS
    Itinerary to discover the architectural landmarks such as the Villa Reale, Villa Mirabello, Villa Mirabellino. These are the crown jewels of the park.
     
  • THE GREEN GIANTS (Arboreal tour)
    Itinerary to discover the age old trees in the park. Many are over 200 years old. This route includes a visit to the rosary and the English garden.

 

  • ALONG THE LAMBRO RIVER
    A winding route along the Lambro river including the ancient irrigation ditches, bridges and mills.

 

  • KIDS ON TOUR
