Mille Miglia


Mille Miglia is a legendary race and awe-inspiring rally of around 400 qualifying cars competing across 1000 miles from Brescia to Rome and back, passing through some of the most beautiful cities in Italy. Rome, Siena, Modena and Parma to name but a few.

Famous faces that participated in previous Mille Miglia races included: Adrien Brody, Jeremy Irons, Luke Evans, Jay Leno, Jodie Kidd, Amy Macdonald, Brian Johnson, Paloma Picasso, Martin Brundle and Bruno Senna to name but a few.

“A big well done and many thanks to all at Grandstand for our joyous trip to the Mille Miglia. I use the word joyous because for me, a lover of Italy, its food, people, climate and cars, it was very nearly nirvana.” Quote from one of our clients who travelled with us on the Mille Miglia tour
