1,000 miles in a classic car through northern Italy from Brescia to Rome and back to Brescia. The world-famous Mille Miglia is one of the most sought-after classic car rallies in the world, and you can witness racing cars chatter through the narrow streets of Tuscan cities and a festive atmosphere around the race. From 1927 to 1957, the eponymous thousand miles were considered one of the toughest races ever, because they drove without a break. In 1977, the Mille Miglia was revived as a classic rally a bit more relaxed. The peculiarity: only models, which have already competed in the original Mille Miglia, are allowed to take part in the competition.
