The Mille Miglia 2011 at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort

Mugello is known by engines lovers not only for the Moto Grand Prix held each year at the Mugello Circuit but also for its beautiful roads that wind through beautiful valleys, surrounded by stunning landscapes and ancient castles.It’s not a coincidence that Mugello is one of the historical stages of the Mille Miglia, the car race perhaps most loved by Italians. It is a race, born in 1927, which brings together vintage car that will compete on the route between Brescia and Rome, round trip.

Attending to the passage of the Mille Miglia is an event that allows you to see real gems on four wheels: in Mugello classic cars drive through the valleys  between Florence and Bologna on the road of Passo della Futa and Raticosa, considered one of the 100 most beautiful routes in Italy for landscape, driving pleasure and cultural interest, since the area is rich in villas, towers and fortresses.

But this year the Mille Miglia was a gift to the guests at Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort: during the return journey from Rome to Brescia, a group of participants stopped to spend the night in our Resort.

The next morning cars were roaring along our tree-lined street for the last leg of the race that has crowned the winners duo Giordano Mozzi, Stefania Biacca and their Aston Martin Le Mans in 1933.

The next appointment with the passage of the Mille Miglia is in the spring 2012, but if you would like to enjoy the old road that links Florence and Bologna on board of your car or bike, Mugello is waiting for the whole year.
