ABOUT THE Italian Grand Prix
Any reason to go to Italy is a good one, but there is no denying that the Italian Grand Prix is a big draw for tourism. The racing event hits Italy’s Monza MB and the Autodromo Nazionale Monza circuit. The Grand Prix weekend is sure to be a boisterous affair as up to 110,000 spectators anxiously wait to file into Autodromo Nazionale Monza for a thrilling race.
In 2018, after 53 laps, the United Kingdom’s Lewis Hamilton took first place, beating out Kimi Raikkonen of Team Ferrari by just under 9 seconds. Daniel Ricciardo, Fernando Alonso, and Brendon Hartley all retired, with Hartley being knocked out before the first lap after a collision. Due to a technical infringement in his car, Romain Grosjean was ultimately disqualified after finishing in 6th place.
Autodromo Nazionale Monza will provide plenty of excitement for spectators, partially thanks to its first corner. As history has shown, this is where many first lap accidents occur, knocking out even the best drivers. The circuit has been a staple of the Italian Grand Prix since its first race in 1922. Over the years, the Road and Full Circuit variations have been alternated between, with the Road Circuit, the shorter of the two, prevailing since 1981.
While the race is bound to be filled with many memorable moments, time spent in Monza, the Italian city just northeast of Milan, comes with its own memories. Travelers will love exploring the city’s history, which includes the Monza Cathedral; the city’s original townhall, Arengario; the beautiful Roseto ‘Niso Fumagalli; and the Santa Maria in Strada. The city is not short on ornate cathedrals that are simply breathtaking.
Of course, traveling to Italy comes with the promise of expertly crafted cuisine. Local chefs bring to life Italy’s finest flavors at dozens of restaurants travelers will find in downtown Monza. When not engrossed in the Grand Prix festivities, spectators can grab a bite to eat at local restaurants like Il Moro, Ristorante Atmosfera, Da Bacco Osteria Gourmet, Uova & Farina, and Pizzeria La Fontana.
Over the past 10 years, Lewis Hamilton has taken half the victories in Monza — will he take another 25 points at Italy this year?
