For Motorsport lovers, the Formula 1 Grand Prix is a great excuse to visit some of the most beautiful cities in the world.

And as beautiful cities go, you won’t find much better than Milan. Luckily for fans, the city’s racecourse, Monza, offers some of the most exciting races in the world of motorized sport today.

A permanent fixture of the Grand Prix circuit since 1950, Monza, is one of the sport’s most iconic tracks. Dubbed “La Pista Magica” (the magic track) Monza, tests the fearlessness and skill of drivers like few can. Home to great races and unfortunately, terrible accidents, this is a course that has burned itself into the hearts of sports fans across the world.

And from September 2 – September 4th, it returns to delight us all for the Formula 1 Gran Premio Heineken D’Italia 2016.

If you plan on going, it’s best to avoid the last minute scramble when finding a place to stay. As this is one of the most coveted races in the world, most places book out fast and planning early is the best way to go.

As most hotels in the racecourse’s immediate vicinity will no doubt be crowded, we’ve selected a hotel which will avoid you that problem while still being within reasonable distance of the course. Offering location, discretion, and service suited for the discerning traveler, the Bulgari Milan, is one of the best options for your consideration.


Bulgari Hotel Milan

You might find hotels located closer to the Monza racecourse. But we doubt you’ll find any as good as this.

Less than 40 minutes from the Monza and right at the heart of Milan, the Bulgari is the perfect compromise for the Formula 1 fan who wants to squeeze in a bit of sightseeing and shopping on their trip.

The hotel is only minutes from the shopping districts of Via Monte Napoleone and Villa della Spiga. Landmarks such as the Duomo and La Scala are also a short walk away. So keep your credit card and camera at hand.

But even though the city offers tantalizing reasons to step out of the Bulgari; the hotel offers just as many to stay in.

Its’ sleek looks are made for the modern VIP traveler; and in a city where aesthetics are a matter of life and death, it still manages to stand above the pack.

Decorator Antonio Citterio carved the hotel from slabs of Zimbabwean Black Marble, teak wood, and stones quarried in the towns of Vicenza and Afyon. The result, is an exercise in elegance and class.

With only 58 rooms and suites, the discrete atmosphere of the Bulgari Hotel Milan is something of a holy grail in a city which houses Italy’s stock market and plays host to numerous events. Spend enough time in this busy city, and discretion, is a side of the hotel you’ll come to appreciate.

The attention to detail and sleekness of the rooms is downright impressive. But even more so, is that they strike the perfect balance of comfort and elegance that many strive for but fail to achieve. The earthy tones of the oak parquet flooring, plush armchairs, and black marble bathtubs, exude a sense of familiarity that’ll have you feeling at home within seconds.

Guests of the Bulgari Hotel Milan have the privilege of staying in a 14th century Monastic garden spanning over 4000sqm. In this city, a hotel that offers any green space is a rarity, let alone this much of it.

Designed by landscape architect Sophia Agata Ambroise, Il Giardino (the garden), is an invitation to discover the pleasure of alfresco dining and long aperitivos with family and friends within a cocoon of lush flowers and greenery.

If you’re after complete privacy, this idyllic setting is spotted with open air rooms framed by trees and hedges that can be partitioned or interconnected at your pleasure.

Though the garden grants you a sense of escapism at the heart of the city, a trip to the hotel’s subterranean spa ups the ante by making your senses escape to a holiday of their own. 

Well designed and staffed by top notch therapists; the spa is a slice of heaven that’s floated down to the basement of a Milan hotel.
