Finally Summer!

In Monza there are a lot of things to do sheltered from the summer heat and many events scheduled for all tastes and ages!

To help you in your choice here is a list of MUST SEE and MUST DO for your summer holiday in MONZA!


The Park of Monza

Its trails are immersed in the woods thus are perfect for walks shletered from the summer heat. You could also follow the course of the River Lambro, along which you can meet old mills and nineteenth-century farms.

Whether you are lovers of art, nature or want to find out the myths and legends with witches, gnomes and knights in monza's Park there are itinereries for all tastes!

Also, until November 5th, in a field near Villa Mirabello, you can encounter... dinosaurs!

Bicycle is the ideal way to visit the Park! If you can't bring your own, we recommend you hire one at Cascina Bastia. At the following link,  the details of the service:

For sports lovers there are many possibilities: from riding lessons, nordic walking trails, running routes and orienteering trails, Monza's Park offers tons of sports activities! We also recommend you consult the calendar of the "Sport in the Park" project: an opportunity to practice different disciplines, with qualified tutors, free and free access!


Swimming pool in the park

And again in Monza's Park, to look for some relief on the hottest days, you can take refuge in the waters of the Pool in the park, open from June till the end of August, from 10.00 to 19.00.

There is also a vegetable garden, a fitness area, a kiosk and, of course, the fishing pond!

In the Civic Museums until September 3rd you can visit the exhibition dedicated to the 19th century painter Mosè Bianchi, one of the most important italian painters of the time.

But the cultural offer in town is particularly rich. Here is a brief list Must see in Monza this summer:

The exhibition "From Monet to Bacon, The Artworks of the Johannesburg Art Gallery" is set up at the Monza Palace until the 31st July. A unique opportunity to admire the masterpieces of great international artists, from Claude Monet to Edgar Degas, Dante Gabriel Rossetti to John Everet Millais, Pablo Picasso to Francis Bacon, Roy Lichtenstein to Andy Warhol. .

At the Belvedere della Villa Reale do not miss the Design Museum, with a selection of over 200 iconic pieces from the permanent collection of the Triennale of Milan, testimony of the innovations, experiments and heterogeneity of the history of Italian design.

In the historical center, next to the beautiful medieval Duomo of Monza, there is the Museum and Treasure of the Duomo of Monza, a unique collection in the world that still holds the invaluable Treasure of the Longobard Queen Theodolinda.


And in the evening?

At 6pm, don't go home ... its time for a cocktail! Its the happy hour time in the bars, pubs and wine shops of via Bergamo and in the streets of the city center.
