Security Level: 3
Crime, especially petty theft, is the primary security concern for travelers. Italy experiences frequent strikes, which may affect services used by travelers. Demonstrations and protests occur very often in Italy, particularly in the larger cities. Terrorism remains a concern in Italy due to the prevailing global situation, past threats and the country's alliance with the United States. Earthquakes are also a concern, particularly in central Italy.
World Fuel Services partners with UnitedHealthcare Global Risk to offer superior security intelligence and risk mitigation services. Special reports are provided by UnitedHealthcare Global Risk.VIEW THE WORLD WATCH REPORT FOR ITALY

Many hotel accommodation options are available throughout and near the town of Monza. The larger city of Milan offers a surplus of hotels suiting all budgets. This city is full of attractions for all types of travelers from shopping to viewing famous paintings. Tourists can experience traditional dishes and creative desserts. For a quieter location, visitors could consider Bergamo (about 40 km away). For those looking for luxury accommodations, they should consider Lake Como (about an hour and a half from the Monza circuit). Rates will be more affordable the further away you stay from the event. Each hotel will have a different cancellation policy and penalty if canceled due to last minute changes. Be sure to research the hotel’s website, read hotel reviews, read all cancellation policy terms, and secure your reservation early.
