The treasures of Monza Park
An oasis of peace, well-being and culture, Monza Park is a popular spot for an invigorating break in contact with nature.
It isn't always necessary to travel far and wide to take a break from the stress and hassle of everyday life and reconnect with our inner self, regaining energy and a better mood.
This is certainly true when you come across a green oasis just 20 kilometres from the hustle and bustle of the city, which in addition to its obvious naturalistic charm also offers elements of undeniable artistic and historical value that make it much more than just another city park.
We are talking about the Park of Monza, just outside the historic centre of this small town in Lombardy, covering an area of almost 700 hectares and part of the Regional Park of the Lambro Valley, a delightful place to explore on foot or even on horseback but ideal on for riding a bike from one of the rental points available inside the park.
Here, in addition to expanses of meadows and woodland, playgrounds and sports facilities (swimming pools, tennis courts, golf club and riding stables as well as the famous motor racing circuit), farms populated by ducks and squirrels and eco workshops where you can learn while having fun, it is absolutely worth taking a moment to visit the sumptuous Villa Reale and its delightful Rose garden, the ancient mills along the Lambro and the aristocratic residences, the medieval and neo-Gothic buildings and the numerous 19th-century farmhouses.
A hidden casket of well-preserved treasures and the legacy of an important history, which we will reveal to you stage by stage on this cycling itinerary in Monza Park.
