There is no doubt that a nice ride in the historic center of Monza should be at the top of the list of things to do for those visiting the city.

What to see in Monza: 5 unmissable tips, among historical monuments, natural views and modern attractions

Visiting Monza is a comfortable and pleasant experience. The Lombard city, a few steps from Milan, has a long history of culture and traditions and offers artistic jewels of inestimable value. The following is a brief guide on what to see in Monza, designed for those who want to discover the beauty of the capital that gave birth to the famous Nun Gertrude, whose story is told by Alessandro Manzoni in the Promessi Sposi.

Are you preparing to visit Monza and want to understand what to see ? This article can really give you a helping hand and help you better organize your time in the city. It is a brief guide to Monza that shows you the 5 monuments or places that you really cannot miss , because they deeply characterize the Lombard city. Monza, in fact, has a lot to offer culturally, both in historical and artistic terms, and nothing to envy to the nearby Milan. And then, it is a place with an extremely modern soul, it is no coincidence that it hosts the most famous Italian car circuit , namely the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, known throughout the world as the Temple of Speed. But let's proceed in order, and let's start this little journey through the streets of Monza, divided into five stages.

Weekend in Monza? Here is a ready-made itinerary

Monza Cathedral and Museum of Treasures

The route starts from the undisputed king of the city: the Cathedral of Monza (whose official name, however, is the minor Basilica of San Giovanni Battista). A monument that deserves to be at the top of the rankings, because it would also rightfully enter the even narrower list of things to see in Monza in just one day. The Cathedral was built between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries and houses some timeless masterpieces, including the Tree of Life by Arcimboldo and the wonderful Teodolinda Chapel . The latter takes its name from the Lombard queen who converted the monzese to Catholicism and who is still a much loved figure in the capital (the picturesque historical procession that animates the streets every year at the beginning of July is dedicated to her). In addition, the so-called Iron Crown is also preserved in the Cathedral, with which various kings were crowned for centuries, including the Kings of Italy. Attached to the building, there is also the Museo del Tesoro and Duomo di Monza , whose relics cover over 1400 years of history.

Monza historic center and Lambro river

Once you leave the Duomo, you will find yourself in the beautiful square of the same name, the heart of the historic city center. From here you can start a walk that touches the fundamental monuments of Monza : Palazzo dell'Arengario , Monumento ai Caduti , Torre Teodolinda (again!) and Ponte dei Leoni on the river Lambro .

The Palazzo dell'Arengario is the most important building in Monza after the Duomo (from which it is just a two-minute walk away). It is a former municipal building, located in an area where the main city streets cross, including via Italia , the artery that connects the center of Monza with the heart of Milan. Currently, the Arengario hosts art and photography exhibitions. Not far from the Cathedral of Monza and the Arengario there are also Piazza Trento Trieste , site of the war memorial , and the Tower of Teodolinda , from the Middle Ages. A visit cannot be denied even to the Ponte dei Leoni, which straddles the Lambro river and which owes its name to the four statues placed at its ends.

Finally, the historic center of Monza is full of small churches that still deserve a mention (and maybe a look, given that you are on the spot), such as Santa Maria in Strada, San Maurizio (where legend has it that the nun of Monza took her vows), Santa Maria al Carrobiolo And St. Peter Martyr.

Royal Villa (or Royal Palace of Monza)

Slightly off-centre compared to the other important monuments, about a quarter of an hour's walk from the Duomo, stands one of the symbols of Monza, which you cannot miss: the Royal Villa (also known as the Royal Palace ). Born as a ducal palace in 1777, at the behest of Ferdinand of Habsburg , it was subsequently acquired by the royal family, who made it a luxurious summer residence . The Royal Villa bears the signature of the architect Giovanni Piermarini , a pupil of Vanvitelli . Not surprisingly, the classic and clean style that characterizes the external architecture is very reminiscent of two famous works by Vanvitelli: the Royal Palace of Caserta and the Teatro alla Scala in Milan . Internally, the Palace is divided into two sections: the royal apartments and the reception rooms, both extremely fascinating.

Monza Park

The Royal Villa is set inside the Monza Park , another attraction that cannot be overlooked and is absolutely worth seeing. With its 700 hectares of extension, it triples the size of the park of Versailles and is the largest urban park in Europe. Established in 1805, today the Monza Park represents an indispensable green lung for the city, to be explored on foot or by bicycle.

Monza National Circuit

The last place (but not least) of this ista dedicated to the things you absolutely must see in Monza is occupied by a much more contemporary attraction than the previous ones, namely the Autodromo Nazionale Monza . The Temple of Speed, known and loved internationally, is located inside the Park , near the Reggia di Monza, giving life to an original combination of ancient and modern. On the other hand, the track is also a piece of history , having been the setting in which the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix has been held for decades.

The winter test sessions of the 2023 Formula 1 World Championship will be held in Sakhir (Bahrain), from 23 to 25 February.

Corporate team building activity, 3 winning ideas to make a group

Corporate team building activities have long been widespread among companies in every sector. Through team building events, in fact, it is possible to work on the harmony and motivation of employees, enhancing the so-called human resources of the company. The important thing, however, is to find the right idea, the one that manages to keep fun and effectiveness together. Here are 3 ideas for successful corporate team building.

Those who work in the human resources sector know it well: creating a positive climate among company employees is essential to allow them to work at their best and be productive. In fact, a motivated worker who feels part of a project that enhances him is naturally led to commit more, to contribute ideas and energy to the good running of the company, to collaborate with colleagues in a profitable way. An advantage for everyone: for the company, which will see its productivity grow, and for the worker, who will not experience the time spent in the factory or office with frustration. But how are these positive results achieved? The modalities are obviously manifold. An important role, however, is played by the so-called corporate team building activities , that is, initiatives aimed precisely at cementing employees, motivating them and helping them to form a group. Like many of the innovations in entrepreneurship and human resource management, corporate team building events originated in the United States but soon spread around the world. In Italy, for many years now, the HR departments of the largest and most innovative companies have been carrying out periodic team building activities aimed at all employees or specific sectors . More and more often, in the personnel offices, there are professionals who are specifically dedicated to organizing these initiatives and are always looking for new ideas and ideas for team building . Of course, there are many possibilities. At least 3, however, have an edge and deserve to be tried at least once.

Escape room, only those who play as a team win

The first idea for a winning corporate team building is the escape room , a group game that is now very popular and widespread in all major Italian cities. Technically, these are rooms (or perhaps it would be better to talk about labyrinths) from which it is possible to escape only by solving chain puzzles . There are many different types of escape rooms . What changes is above all the setting : from horror to science fiction, there is no suggestion that has not been explored by the creators of these game rooms. What does not change is the fundamental ingredient needed to pass the test: the harmony of the group. From an escape room you can only go out together, if you are a team. And this is precisely the reason that makes this format particularly suitable for corporate team building initiatives .

Adventure park, to make groups in the open air

Another activity much loved by human resources managers is the path inside an adventure park . And even in this case, the variety of the offer generates the embarrassment of choice. Around Italy, in fact, there are many equipped parks that offer the opportunity to try your hand at adventurous paths , including suspension bridges, launches with lianas and walls of rope to climb. All tests that allow you to test your resourcefulness and that, if lived in a group, are also a valid test of harmony and empathy . With an important addition: carrying out outdoor team building activities, immersed in nature, contributes to the psychophysical well-being of the participants.

Track ride in the Temple of Speed, the adrenaline that makes you grow

Escape room and adventure park, however, are now quite widespread team building activities, almost overused. Many companies, on the other hand, like novelty, the idea that displaces, which represents something unique for their employees to experience. And here, then, that Autodromo Nazionale Monza comes to the rescue with one of its most requested driving experiences : the “ Hot Laps ”, organized by Puresport . It is a truly unrepeatable experience: whizzing on one of the most famous tracks in the world aboard real racing cars, Gran Turismo or Formula 1 single-seaters. All this, supported by professional pilots . A team building activity of this type guarantees indescribable emotions and a full of adrenaline. Impossible not to be enchanted by the exclusivity of the location and the vibrations of a magical place.

Arengario di Monza, guide to the discovery of the ancient town hall

The Arengario of Monza is one of the symbolic places of the city. Formerly the seat of the town hall, the medieval town hall now hosts important art exhibitions and events. A short guide to learn more about its structure and history.

The Arengario di Monza , located in the heart of the historic center , is one of the symbolic monuments of the city of Brianza and deserves to be included among the tourist points of interest. And its history also deserves to be known, albeit briefly. In fact, the events that over time have transformed and shaped the old town hall of Monza , now home to important exhibitions, tell a lot about the medieval history of Italy.

Plan your visit to Monza by following the right advice on what to see and what to do

A brief history of the Arengario: why it is called that and what it was used for

As in any self-respecting story, however, it is good to start from the beginning, that is, from the construction of the Arengario . According to the most accredited reconstructions (which must be trusted in the absence of certain data), the construction of the famous palace began towards the end of 1200 . A dating that seems to be confirmed also by an inscription above the entrance door, which refers to the year 1293 (expressed in Roman numerals). The then powerful mayor of Monza, Pietro Visconti , wanted the birth of the Arengario. But why did he build it? What was the Arengario used for? The triggering reason was the contrast between the power of the podestà and that of the church . Until the 13th century, in fact, the magistrates and the podestà used the curtain of the Cathedral for their activities, as they did not have a civil building that could house them. In 1250, however, the mayor was struck by excommunication and his stay near the main religious building in Monza became unwelcome. A confirmation of this struggle between civil power and religious power also comes from the place where the Arengario is located, a few steps from the Duomo, which it is also physically opposed to. At this point, however, it is legitimate to ask why the name of Arengario was chosen for the new town hall . What does this term mean? It is a word borrowed from the German, which means “ meeting place ”, to signal the fundamental function carried out by the building, seat of the municipality, the court and the merchants.

Structure and characteristics of the Palazzo Comunale of Monza

From the point of view of the structure and style, the Arengario is clearly inspired by the Palazzo della Ragione in Milan , built in the first half of the 1200s. The overall layout is longitudinal, with an open porch on the lower floor and a large covered room on the upper floor. Unlike the Milanese building, however, the town hall of Monza is flanked by an imposing bell tower . Furthermore, it should be noted that the current appearance of the Arengario does not correspond to its original state. In fact, between the end of the 1800s and the beginning of the 1900s, major renovations were planned and carried out, with a consequent reduction in the spaces of the complex, which previously also included the Palazzo Pretorio (demolished). A second massive restoration took place at the end of the 1960s, with the aim of supporting the exhibition vocation of the Arengario.

The exhibitions of the Arengario

Not surprisingly, today the ancient municipal building in Brianza is home to very important art exhibitions and events organized by the municipal administration. The permanent collections that it previously housed, on the other hand, have been transferred to the Civic Museums. To find out about the exhibitions in the Arengario in real time, you can consult the website of the Municipality of Monza .

Visit the Arengario: contacts, where it is, how to reach it

As anticipated, the Arengario is located in the historic center, precisely in Piazza Roma . It is therefore easily reachable on foot from any of the other tourist sites ( Monza Cathedral and its Museum , Villa Reale , Monza Park ). The structure is open to the public every day, except Mondays, from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 7pm . For information, please call 039 329541 .

How the competitions take place

Each appointment of the national championship includes two races , the first with a longer length than the second. The starting grid of Race 1 is established by the races of the eliminatory phase. In Race 2, on the other hand, the first eight positions correspond to the inverse of the arrival order of Race 1 (in essence, the first classified part eighth, and vice versa). The final score won by the driver is the sum of the points collected in each race . It should be noted, however, that the various appointments on the calendar do not all have the same weight. In fact, some circuits are assigned a coefficient of 1.5 (Pista Salentina and Pista Sette Laghi), which must be multiplied by the score obtained by the driver in that stage.

The Duomo complex

This virtual journey cannot fail to start from the beating heart of the city: the Duomo of Monza , with all that it contains. In fact, inside the minor Basilica of San Giovanni Battista (this is its real name) there are some of the most precious pieces that Monza has to offer to tourists: the wonderful Theodolinda Chapel, theTree of Life by Arcimboldo, a rich series of prestigious frescoes , the Iron Crown and the Museum of the Treasure and Cathedral of Monza .

The Arengario palace

A little more than 100 meters on foot from the Duomo, stands the other symbol of Monza: the Palazzo dell'Arengario , that is the ancient town hall. Its importance is also confirmed by its strategic position, as it overlooks Piazza Roma , the nerve center of the city, from which all the main streets branch off. Today, the building is used as an exhibition space , while the ancient collections that filled it have been transferred to the nearby Civic Museums , housed in the Casa degli Umiliati .

The Civic Museums of Monza

The distance between the Arengario and the Museums is really minimal, less than 300 meters, passing again near the Duomo. To confirm that walking around Monza is very easy. The building where the museums are located was an old reception house for lay members of religious orders . Today, the two floors of the structure house both archaeological finds and paintings from the sixteenth to the twentieth century , as well as temporary exhibitions .

The Longobard Tower, the Teodolinda Tower and the Viscontea Tower

If you leave the Civic Museums and head towards the Lambro river , you have the opportunity to admire two towers, which are also very characteristic. They are the Lombard Tower , the only one from that period still intact, and the Tower of Teodolinda , from the Middle Ages. Also along the Lambro there is also the nineteenth-century Torre Viscontea , but moved further south, about 500 meters from the other two.

What to do in Monza

The Ponte dei Leoni and the remains of the Ponte d'Arena

Near the Tower of Teodolinda, it is also possible to admire the Bridge of the lions , the most famous of those that cross the Lambro river. It was built in the mid-1800s, with the intention of enhancing the Austrian Empire. To make room for it, what remained of the old Ponte d'Arena was demolished, much larger but already partially destroyed by a flood, the last of which are still visible.

The churches and other monuments of the historic center of Monza

In closing and in no particular order, some other places of historical and artistic interest deserve to be mentioned, such as the war memorial located in Piazza Trento e Trieste . The same goes for the numerous churches scattered all over the city, such as Santa Maria in Strada , San Maurizio (where legend has it that the nun of Monza took her vows), Santa Maria al Carrobiolo and San Pietro Martire .
