722 tour - Mille Miglia 6-night tour
The 'Mille Miglia' 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.
Why '722 tour', rather than '1000 Miglia holiday'?
'722' refers to the start time allocated to the great Stirling Moss, paired with 'navigator' Dennis Jenkinson, in the 1955 Mille Miglia. Moss and 'Jenks', driving a Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, went on to set the fastest time on the event. Their time of 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds was never beaten - the event lasted only 2 more years before it was stopped as an all out race.
The Mille Miglia now runs as a 4-day 'retrospective' with competitive elements based around matching set finishing times which penalise drivers for being early so as to negate the need for excessive speeds! A handicapping system also allows cars from the 1930's to compete for overall honours against much later machinery. 1930 Alfa Romeo 6C 1750 Gran Sport Zagato are frequently seen atop the podium, beating off the challenge from a wide selection of cars, including the fearsome Mercedes-Benz 300SLR - the Mercedes Benz factory museum cars often driven by 'celebrity' guests such as former F1 Driver David Coulthard, team boss Toto Woolf or his more successful wife Susie...
Whilst we could call our tour a Mille Miglia holiday, we feel that rather under-sells what we are offering. Our package includes hotels, most meals and the experiences shown that add up to much more than a luxury holiday.
The 722 touring experience - luxury '1000 miles' tour package

What about flights?
Whilst we don't include flights, here's some advice on where to fly to for our Mille Miglia 6 night tour.
We advise guests to look at flights into Bergamo, Verona or Milan, with outbound flights from Bologna - this will minimise the time you spend in transfers to the start and from the end of our tour. Trans-Atlantic flights frequently depart very early in the morning from Milan which can prove to be a challenge for some guests with transfer times of between 2 and 3 hours.
Please contact us to discuss arrival and departure transfers.
Notes about the event
The final, detailed, route of the 2024 Mille Miglia will not be released until shortly before the event. Until we receive the final route outline our final itinerary will not be confirmed.
We've been asked a number of times, so will suggest that you are physically able to walk about a mile at a reasonable pace. There are a number of locations that can be tricky to reach by coach, so some walking is required. 2017's tour included one gentleman recovering from a leg break, who found the distances fairly easy-going. Also be aware that you must be able to climb from a jetty into one of our boats (and out again) to take part in the lake cruise.
Meals - what's included?
Dinner is included on each evening of the tour. In the main this will be at a traditional-style restaurant although a couple of meals will be in our hotels.
A couple of lunches are included - in Brescia on Wednesday and at Maranello on Thursday. All other lunches are at the clients' discretion. You will find that you are generally spoilt for choice for something snack-like or fine dining!
We will be 'on site' throughout the event to ensure your needs are catered for throughout.
