Royal Villa of Monza

Introduction

Famous around the world for hosting the Italian Formula One Grand Prix, Monza is also a historic town with some first-rate tourist attractions.

Attractions

The main sight is the Royal Villa of Monza, built between 1777 and 1780 for the Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, and later refurbished by King Humbert I of Italy, who was assassinated by an anarchist in Monza in 1900. Monza Park is the fourth largest walled park in Europe, extending over 688 hectares.

The Romanesque-Gothic cathedral, with its marble fašade, looks like a scaled down version of Milan's Duomo.
