Ticket types

Alta Velocita B Grandstand

Alta Velocita Grandstand offers an excellent view from the inside of the first chicane, Variante del Rettifilo. A key overtaking spot as they brake from over 200 mph to just 50 mph. You may also be able to view some of the main straight from this grandstand. Although this is great viewing spot its some distance from the centre of the circuit where all the major bars and shops are located.

Ascari 16 Grandstand - Uncovered

A superb grandstand on the edge of the famous and evocative Ascari curves. No other grandstand offers such an exciting and close view of the cars as they pass through the high speed chicanes and curves. It's no wonder that tickets for this prized grandstand sell out within weeks of going on sale. A giant video wall keeps you up to date with all the race action.

Centrale Grandstand - Covered

In front of the pits, offering a perfect view of build up to the race and the spectacular start. Also wheel changes, the finish and podium ceremony. It also gives an excellent view of the cars as they exit the Curva Parabolica, one of the fastest and most difficult turns on the circuit. The cars pass you at speeds in excess of 200mph before hitting the brakes hard before Rettifilo. Huge video walls keep you up to date with all the race action. During the build up to the race inside the main grandstands it is a high octane atmosphere, Mexican waves, flag waving, singing. The Monza podium celebrations are a magical experi

General Admission

General admission tickets are great value for money. There are many places around the circuit that you can access with a general admission ticket. Not the conventional seated grandstands, these areas include mounds and small shaded stands around the inside of the track. If there are seats, they are not numbered so be sure to get there early for the best viewing spots. It might also be an idea to bring fold away chairs and binoculars for some parts of general admission.

Lateral Parabolic (21a) Grandstand - Uncovered

This grandstand is located on the outside of the circuit just before the last corner. Fantastic views of the cars racing down the back straight, where they can reach speeds of up to 200mph, before braking for the famous Parabolica Corner, a very fast 3rd gear corner. 

Lateral Parabolic (22) Grandstand - Covered

This grandstand offers similar views to Parabolic 21a grandstand but with the advantage of being situated a bit deeper into the curve for an enhanced view of the race action. It's other attraction is that it is covered and offers protection from the weather be it hot sunshine or heavy rain.

Main Straight Terraces

These are excellent value tickets, do note views are partially obscured by the catch fencing. The bleachers (bench seats) are excellent are much cheaper than the grandstand seats behind. The terraces are located in front of the Right Lateral grandstands facing the grid and pit boxes.

Pit Lane Walk

Your weekend ticket allows entrance to the Thursday Pit lane walk. A great opportunity to get close up to the cars and and meet some drivers.

Podium Celebrations

It’s 2010 Fernando Alonso has just won the race, Filipe Massa has come second. A Ferrari one two! I’m in the crush under the podium, one amongst thousands of delirious flag waving Ferrari fans. And then Alonso appears on the podium. The celebrations get even wilder and the noise is just incredible. The Italian national anthem is played. Champagne is flying through the air over the crowd. Alonso has just become a Ferrari legend.

An opportunity to meet your fellow guests. Talk about the weekend ahead whilst enjoying complementary drinks and snacks.

What you’ve said

John Just to say thanks we had a wonderful experience at Monza. The race was thrilling, our first time at the GP, the seats couldn't have been better, the hotel was beautiful, the company good fun and all the arrangements ran smoothly. So thanks again and I have no hesitation in recommending you to friends. Keith and Julie

Keith & Julie

Hi John Thanks for your part in what was a great experience. From my point of view, exactly the right amount of organisation (a lovely Hotel, tickets, savvy transport etc), without being "herded". Things that would have been for me, painful to organise, done well as part of the package without any fuss.

Ken - Australia

John & Linda, Thanks for putting a great trip together for Monza. We really enjoyed all the folks and of course the race. We're looking forward to a future trip to at least Barcelona and Monaco. Would you be willing to email me a copy of the photo where Mark Webber is running in behind Linda and us Sunday morning as the drivers are arriving? We would really appreciate a copy of it! Thanks again and cheers!
