The Prelude Tour 2020: A journey through paradise
Last May, the first edition was undoubtedly a resounding success. The Prelude Tour took a small group of participants and their Historic Cars to the most beautiful locations north of Cernobbio. Now it’s certain: 2020 will see a new edition of the sought-after outing.
It is a paradise for anybody who likes to see Historic Cars on the move. The landscape around Villa d’Este is ideal for staging an exciting trip in a classic car. The southern atmosphere around the lake entices participants to embark on the exclusive Prelude Tour. Most of the route is along the edge of the lake and offers some fantastic impressions. Ancient, picturesque villages with narrow alleyways and bars morph into roads that negotiate the interplay between rocks and water.
When the route takes us in the direction of the mountains, the vegetation changes with every metre ascended. The roads curve upwards away from Mediterranean flair adorned with palm trees and the enticing colours of bougainvillea, as the landscape evolves with every metre of altitude and becomes more alpine. With every bend, the vistas become more spectacular. This is where mountains, valleys and lakes show their splendour and boundless glory.
Gastronomic jewels are nestling here that only local people are aware of. However, in the 2020 edition one of these magical places will once again open its doors to the participants of the Prelude Tour. The many highpoints will offer a host of unforgettable experiences.
One of the next Corriere d’Eleganza newsletters will contain more information about the route and registration. However, one thing is certain. The places on the starter list will still be strictly limited – in other words, this will continue to be an exclusive outing.
