The High and Untamed Walls of Monza, Italy
Meet Monza, Italy a lovely small town 10 km from Milan. Renowned for its Monza GP, the formula car race that each September cheers the town with special events. But Monza is much more than this.
A veritable hidden pearl with its own Queen, Teodolinda, a Carolingian beauty. Originally walls circumnavigated the entire town. Go in Piazza Duomo, where you will find a mini-sized version of Milan’s dome. The treasure is right there; the corona ferrea. And at the end of Viale Cavriga stands the Villa Reale, where the Savoia family once lived.
