Taking pictures at the Mille Miglia 2016, the special vintage car event

Owner of high class classic cars met for a sporting competition. Who wants to shoot special photos at such an event, should be well informed about the route and select the location wisely. The driving route from Brescia to Rome and back offers many highlights.


Here a few impressions 2016




Approved were 450 vehicles, which could also have participated at the original version of the Mille Miglia from 1927 to 1957. These includes oldtimer made by Bentley, Aston Martin, Bugatti, as well as early cars from Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.


It is possible to get photos before the start, when all cars are polished to high gloss, but unfortunately it mostly rains, like this year. The same at Parco Giardino Sigurtha in Valeggio sul Mincio, with its nice park settings.


Two days later the tour passed beautiful locations, that attracted a lot of spectators. The Piazza del Campo in Siena and Piazzale Michelangelo in Florenz, with the views of the Duomo.


Who wants to photograph the vehicles in movement has to find a place along the route. Nice is the winding ascent to Passo della Futa. There, the cars are already dusty and authentic.


Likewise at the finish line. Here is the last chance for a photo, after reaching the finish line the driver scattered.


Again, it was an insdescrible experience.


The atmosphere, the climate, the landscape and the culture make the Mille Miglia a gathering event for motorists.


We are looking forward to Mille Miglia 2017


Bye for now

Jutta and Bernd
