The Italian Job An explosion of design, speed and pure luxury at the Italian Grand Prix™
Jetting off in style
How better to begin your homage to all things Italian by chartering a Piaggio Aero P180 Avanti II turbojet aircraft to Milan? This stylish Italian aircraft is built for high altitudes and even higher speeds. The spacious cabin seats up to seven passengers and, true to Italian form, features custom silk carpets. Interiors are finished in Lightweight Tapis Ultra leather, to deliver the look and feel of the finest European calfskin. Private jet charter specialist PrivateFly offers the P180 Avanti II at around £1,750 ($2,979) per hour. The plane can also be purchased outright for $7,000,000.

The Paddock Club™ welcomes you
The Italian Grand Prix™ was one of the inaugural Formula One™ Championship races in 1950 and has taken place every year since then. Mortorsport enthusiasts flock from all over the world to support their beloved Ferrari on home soil, where a sea of red flags bearing Ferrari’s “Prancing Horse” fly from every grandstand at the circuit.
Yet the best seats in the house are undoubtedly in the Ferrari Formula One Paddock Club™, where you’ll join the most privileged circle in Formula One™. You can’t get closer to the action or the glamour of the F1™ lifestyle than the Paddock Club™. You’ll have exclusive behind the scenes access.
You’ll see the clockwork precision of the Ferrari team at work. And you’ll be close enough to feel part of the race as you watch the team make their final preparations. You can even be present at a live driver Q&A, where you’ll hear the inside story on tactics, practice and more.
A hotel like no other
The Italian Grand Prix™ takes place at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, which is just a short transfer from Milan. As Italy’s thriving capital of commerce and the world’s oldest fashion capital, Milan provides the perfect blend of architectural heritage and sophisticated culture. Both are embodied by the Armani Hotel, which will be your VIP F1™ weekend base. Located in Milan’s worldfamous couture district, the stunning eight floor Armani Hotel occupies the same 1930’s rationalist style block as the iconic brand’s Via Manzoni flagship store.
The word on the street is that every detail was personally designed by Giorgio Armani himself. The hotel is a vision of refined taste, elegance, comfort and understated style. You’ll enjoy the finest Italian cuisince at the gourmet Armani Ristorante, while the Armani Lounge is the perfect place to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail surrounded by breathtaking views of the city’s skyline. You’ll also have a dedicated Lifestyle Manager to ensure you get the most from your stay.
Get behind the wheel
After an action-packed and glamorous weekend at the Italian Grand Prix™, why not take time to discover more of Italy behind the wheel of one of Ferrari’s latest magnificent cars? With a tailormade Ferrari tour of Italy you’ll enjoy a unique and luxurious travel experience, with accommodation at the finest hotels and dining at Italy’s most famous restaurants en route. Your personal Ferrari Tour Director will accompany you in a separate car and take care of all the finer details, such as your luggage, dinner reservations, refuelling and more. You’ll be free to enjoy the ultimate Italian road trip.
It’s hard to imagine a more fitting way to discover the stunning landscape of Tuscany, or the glorious lakes of Northern Italy. But be sure to make time for a visit to the Museo Ferrari in Maranello, where you’ll take control of a Ferrari F1™ car in a semi professional simulator or learn the role of a race engineer from the F1™ pit wall. It’s yet another unmissable moment in your VIP Italian Grand Prix™ trip. The rest are up to you.
