The Mille Miglia or 1000 miles was an endurance race that took place 24 times between 1927 and 1957.

Participants raced with their Gran Turismo cars over the open roads of northern Italy from Brescia to Rome and back on a figure of 8 shaped route. Due to frequent fatal crashes the race was banned in 1957, but since 1982 it was revived as a touring trip for old-timers.

This tour is designed to give you the opportunity to choose your preferred route from the past 5 years and most of the interesting sections of the route, such as the Ravenna-Forli-Rimini road used in 1947, 1948 and from 1951 to 1957, with its sweeping bends and breathtaking countryside. Also included are some of the roads and towns used in the Mille Miglia retro run, such as the challenging hill passes from San Marino to Urbino.

In addition you get to drive the Stelvio Pass at 2757m, one of the highest and most dramatic mountain passes in the Alps. Best approached from the north west you’ll experience the drive down the famous switchbacks driving through the heart of the Stelvio as you make your way to Bormio.
