Mille Miglia, 15-18 May: a recreation of the famous road race, starting and finishing in Brescia in northern Italy then tracing a clockwise, circular 1,000 mile route through central Italy with a southernmost point of Rome. Even without the budget and the car – it’s only open to cars which took part in the original 1927-1957 and registration is now closed – that route is a great reference point for touring Italy, taking in, by definition, many of the best roads.
