Travelling to Mugello in 2019

Hi,

My partner and I are planning to attend Mugello in 2019. I'm looking for advice/opinions/tips about getting there, where to stay, etc. I've heard it's a bit chaotic... we are looking at hiring a campervan and staying on site or otherwise we'll stay in Florence and use public transport to get to the track. Who has been and what have been your experiences?

Hi there!

If you don't mind some truly non-silent nights, a Mugello weekend in a campervan is possibly among the coolest things you can experience in life

It is indeed chaotic but it's super handelable if you plan your moves in advance, and as it sounds like you're doing precisely that, you'll be a-ok.

The way from downtown Florence to the Mugello track is a 50 minutes drive but it can become at least twice as long considered the traffic to get out of/into the city at times and considering how packed the Mugello entrance and especially exit can be on race day. So I go back to my first sentence and my piece of advice is to spend the weekend at the track.

The whole area around the track is amazingly beautiful, not too expensive and obviosuly good food, wine and villages are basically after every corner

Lemme know if you need any more specific advice, could also help anyone that reads us

Thanks Holypucků we figured that if we go the campervan route that we won't be getting much sleep

Just to clarify - can you park a campervan at the track in a designated area or do you go to camping grounds near to the track? Do you know what day you can arrive at the track to camp? Also I'm assuming you buy a campervan (or camping) pass when you buy the MotoGP tickets?

I went there in 2004. Great track, you can see a lot from everywhere. As Holy said, I wouldn’t want to do the commute from Florence. If you don’t want to stay at the track there should be other local options, don’t know how far in advance they get booked up these days.
You’re going to love it, great vibe!

There are campervan parkings both inside and outside the track. Most of the ones inside have more services that the ones outside so I'd recommend those. Also, even tho like I said your sleeping will be difficult, it's definitely worth to be inside the party. It's so much fun. Mugello is Mugello, no matter how many Rossi fans you'll be forced to interact with (if you like Rossi, it was just a joke no worries).

I believe you can arrive already on Friday morning, but I have no clue about the pass even tho what you say would make sense.

Watch out for THE EXIT: after the MotoGP race on sunday, getting out of the track can easily take hours. Of course a campervan has a lot of comforts that a car doesn't have, so you can probably just cook dinner, chill with your partner while the crowd goes away and then exit the track in "calm".
Just....just don't make any specific plans outside of Mugello for that very Sunday eve

Thanks Holypuck... this is just the type information we needed. I've signed up to be informed when the tickets go on sale so my job this weekend is to sort out a campervan for us and get it booked
