RACE WEEKEND TRAVEL & PARKING

Getting to Mugello Circuit

Mugello Circuit

    Parking

    Parking is available on the outside of the circuit for cars and motorcycles. It is payable on arrival for approximately 10 euros per day.

    Traffic at Mugello Circuit has historically been extremely heavy. Please be aware that delays are likely when arriving and leaving the circuit.

    Coach & Bus

    A limited number of seats are available in private 8-seat minivans run by Ser-Vito. These can be booked in advance to get from Florence to Mugello Circuit on Saturday and Sunday. You will meet Ser-Vito's drivers in front of the Church (Basilica) Santa Maria Novella in Santa Maria Novella Square, located 5 minutes walk from Florence's main train station Santa Maria Novella.

    The minivans will then drop you off in the parking lot opposite the Palagio entrance. From Palagio you will be able to access all grandstands and viewing areas (excluding Arrabbiata 58 Grandstand and Arrabbiata 58 General Admission).

    The minivans will depart at the following times:

    • Friday - 7:30am
    • Saturday - 7:00am
    • Sunday - 6:00am

    The arrival time at the Palagio entrance is expected to be around 8:00am on Saturday and Sunday. However, please note that the circuit is located in a hilly area of Tuscany and surrounded by narrow roads, which have historically resulted in heavy traffic.

    The minivans will leave the circuit to return to Florence at the following times:

    • Friday - 6:00pm
    • Saturday - 7:00pm
    • Sunday - 8:00pm

    Due to heavy traffic in the area, departure times are later than in previous years. Customers are encouraged to head to the nearby town of Scarperia to relax, grab a drink and some food before the buses depart. The meeting point will be by the restaurant "Locanda San Barnaba" at Viale J. F. Kennedy, 15, 50038 Scarperia e San Piero FI. Please be aware that the return trip to Florence may be slow due to heavy traffic, particularly on Sunday after the race.

    Please follow the instructions below when ordering your minivan tickets:

    • Prices below are per person. Please add one ticket per person travelling on the minivan
    • In the comments box in the billing page enter the names of each person travelling on the minivans
    • In the comments box in the billing page enter the mobile number of the lead person on the booking (Please make sure you have this mobile number with you over the race weekend)

    Ser-Vito requires passengers' names and the mobile number to facilitate the communication over the race weekend. The mobile number of the drivers will also be provided to you.

    Please note that large groups may need to be split between minivans based on vehicle capacity.

    Taxi

    There is the option to get a taxi from Florence to any destination in Mugello which is approximately 30 kilometres away. You may check with your hotel in Florence to arrange for this.

    Please allow plenty of time if you take a taxi to the circuit as the traffic is likely to be heavy and be prepared for a short walk as the taxis may not drop you off at the circuit entrance due to the traffic.

    Train

    The closest railway stations to the circuit are Borgo San Lorenzo (8km to the south) and Florence Santa Maria Novella Central train station (30km to the south). If you are in Florence, take the train from Florence Santa Maria Novella Station to Borgo San Lorenzo Station; this should take approximately 45 minutes.

    In past years this service has been busy and not always run to schedule over the race weekend. We recommend allowing plenty of time to reach the circuit should unexpected delays occur. Once at Borgo San Lorenzo Station, you can either take a taxi or a bus to the circuit. However, please be aware that in the past visitors reported taxis as unavailable due to the high number of fans and the bus service non-existent. Locals may offer transfers to the circuit for a fee.

    The circuit is located 8km from Borgo San Lorenzo Station so you may even decide to walk. If you choose this option, please be prepared with plenty of sun protection and drinking water as the temperatures may be hot at this time of the year.

    Our advice is to take a car and drive to the circuit for the most reliable form of transport.
