    Beautiful church full of frescos that have been restored though some damages can still be seen. This did not affect the beauty of the works and the building, impressive on the outside and inside.
    Loved how uncrowded it was. This is the home of the Iron Crown which is kept secure and not visible in the Chapel of the Queen. What is visible from outside the Chapel is a replica of the crown, the real crown can only be viewed on the guided tour of the Chapel. Well worth paying the extra.
    There is no charge for the Duomo. Skip the museum tour and do the Chapel tour which is what I did.
    Please note there was someone hanging at the entrance with a cup asking for money. Saw the same person sneaking into the church later so please keep an eye on your valuables.

    Must visit! I only wish that each room had a description in English so I could learn more about the history of the building. Further, quite a few rooms were just empty but nonetheless a must visit!

    If you love Formula 1 you have to do a tour of the track. They take you through all the rooms - FIA race control room, briefing room, cool-down room, podium - you can actually stand in it. And you can also take a drive around the track. In my experience it was definitely worth it. I had a bit of a hard time finding the entrance as some of them were closed due to a storm the previous day but I got there at the end and I’m glad I did.

    Opted for this over the museum tour. So glad I did. Ticket staff were extremely helpful and gave me couple of English pamphlets to read prior to tour of the chapel and crown. Got more out of the tour as a result.
    Seeing the Iron Crown is THE primary reason for this tour though the story of the queen is interesting too. This is the same crown used to coronate Charlemagne, Charles V and Napoleon!
    Highly recommended 30 minute tour.
    Note that photos are not allowed inside the chapel.

    A really nice 13th century medieval town hall, called the Arengario, sits with its beautiful arches and red brick structure. It is typical of the north western part of Italy where it is usually called Broletto.

    Place the monument for the assassinated Umberto 1, the King of Italy at the time. Beautiful monument and cappella. Walking distance from the palace.

    It is a big square with a car park underneight, the square has some ugly buildings to take the stairs down.
    The statue on the square is nice but due to the hight, it takes away the view on the square.

    Lovely old bridge with lions sat on either sides of it connecting it from one part of the town to the other. This bridge forms part of a trail (Acqua river route) which you can go on and covers other bridges too. The route where you can start is Torretta Viscontea then walk for about 530m to Ponte dei Leoni / Ponte Romano d’Arena, walk 180m to Ponte di San Gerardino, walk 100m to Mulino Colombo before finally walking 470m to Ponte Nuovo. Total distance 1280m. There is other walks/trails you can go on as well, this is an amazing town with lots of hidden gems and it’s just a matter of going there and look out for them.

    The church of Santa Maria in Strada stands on an ancient convent of the Franciscan Friars called "of Penitence", which allowed it to be converted into an oratory in 1348.
    The name of the church derives from the fact that the building was on the main road that led from Monza to Milan, called precisely the "Road" .
    Attached to the church is a small cloister.
    In then 14th century, the Franciscan friars built a new church on the site of an old ruined oratory, followed by the Franciscan monastery The church was enlarged and embellished in in the early 15th century with the addition of the choir, the sacristy and the bell tower.
    The church was altered and restored several times during the following centuries until it has got its current appearance.
    The brick façade is rich in geometric elements and decorations.
    The bell tower, on the right looking at the façade, originally as high as the facade, is decorated with mullioned windows, hanging arches and spiers.
    The interior of the church is divided into a large rectangular hall, the semi-octagonal choir and the presbytery. The secondary altars, on the sides of the Church, are decorated with frescoes,
    The 18th century High Altar consists of marble, hard stones and bronzes.
    Of particular value are the frescos of the presbytery and the choir.
    Admission is free, although a (small) donation will always be appreciated.

    We visited Monza on our way back from Milan to Lecco. Our main purpose was to see racing circuit.
    It seems that Monza should be on everybody's way. It's one of the beautiest towns we've ever been to.

    Very nice waiting room for the king and royal families, Umberto I di Savoia used it as a wait when he wanted to travel by train.
    Unfortunately I find it very dirty, even the windows are matted from dirt.
    I came on Tuesday afternoon to find it open as I read on internet, but I find it closed .
