Events in Florence: The Mille Miglia Race

Enzo Ferrari defined the Mille Miglia “the world’s greatest road race” and, 82 years after its origin, this race still is a world-known event.

Mille Miglia is a suggestive parade of pre-1957 cars that cover 1000 miles in few days. This event tells something about adventure, history and discovery.

Vintage car lovers should take a look at the Mille Miglia race, which starts out from Brescia on May 14th, passes through Ferrara and reaches Rome before returning to Brescia on another route via Siena, Monteriggioni and Florence.

You don’t have to go far to watch it, as these ancient cars will be passing through Piazza della Signoria and Piazza San Marco in Florence on May 16th, on their way back to Brescia.
