The route 2020

On Friday 18th September, the parade of 300 historic cars will start from Piazza Sordello in Mantua and will cross the suggestive roads of Emilia Romagna, to stop at the Autodrome in Modena for the timed trials and for lunch break. Then it will continue the descent towards the Adriatic: the first evening will take place in Cesenatico in the prestigious location of the Grand Hotel Leonardo da Vinci. Night hospitality on the Riviera.
Saturday 19th of September, the second stage, will be the most intense day of the Gran Premio Nuvolari: after the departure from Rimini, competitors will drive along the Adriatic Road, passing through the Viamaggio Pass. Then, they will follow through the Florentine countryside and the Chianti hills, finally arriving in Siena for the usual embrace with the public in Piazza del Campo, one of the most representative squares of the Peninsula. After the break under the cypresses of Borgo Scopeto, the caravan will continue to Piazza Grande, in the heart of Arezzo. In the late afternoon, the crews will drive along the panoramic streets of Marche, touching Urbino and reaching Rimini, where they will conclude the second stage on the always-crowded “catwalk” of Piazza Tre Martiri.
