The Mille Miglia (Italian for Thousand Miles) was an open-road endurance race which took place in Italy twenty-four times from 1927 to 1957 and is one of the greatest classic car 'race' events in the world. Since it's reintroduction back in 1977 it has been a four day regularity race around Italy, starting and finishing in Brescia, taking in Rome and other historical Italian cities.
Like the older Targa Florio and later the Carrera Panamericana, the Mille Miglia made Gran Turismo (Grand Touring) sports cars like Alfa Romeo, BMW, Ferrari, Maserati, Mercedes Benz and Porsche famous. The race brought out an estimated five million spectators per year from 1953 until 1957 and was also a round of the World Sports Car Championship.
Join us in May 2020 for a magical 6-night hosted tour allowing you to get up close to the cars and drivers as they depart Brescia on their 4-day Italian motoring adventure. Providing the perfect vantage points from which to take in the sights and sounds of the event, you and your guests will enjoy a superb escorted VIP tour, relaxation and hospitality in the most exclusive of surroundings.
We have lined up a great collection of hotels, authentic restaurants and private guided tours of the Ferrari Museum in Maranello, Lamborghini Factory & Museum and a private Maserati collection in Modena. The opening night of the tour kicks off in style with a trip in the icon of classic motor yachts, the Riva Aquarama. Used by the rich and famous of the sixties, they are now valued at a cool half a million pounds each. You will also get the opportunity to fulfill that childhood dream of driving a Ferrari through the streets of Maranello, with our inclusive 'Test Drive' opportunity!*. For those less excited by the classic car experience there will be great opportunities to spend time shopping or sightseeing in Bologna, Modena or Brescia.
Check in to the fantastic boutique hotel on the shores of Lake Iseo on Monday lunchtime and then board our iconic Riva Aquarama motor yachts** for an early evening cruise to a drinks reception and welcome buffet dinner at our lakeside restaurant.

After a hearty breakfast and a relaxing morning at your leisure we will transfer you to Brescia town centre for the 'sealing ceremony' where you'll have time to relax, grab a cappuccino and catch your first glimpse of the classic cars heading through the town centre. Take in the sights and sounds of Brescia and wander amongst the cars as they park up after the official ceremonies that bring to a close the ‘Scrutineering’ that happens in the central square. As the cars return to their pre-race overnight parking we'll get together for an evening at a traditional restaurant in Brescia centre.
