The Ferrari Cavalcade Riviera event was a great success with a total of 144 cars participating in this special event. This special journey has set a record for the number of participating vehicles from all over the world. This journey has the starting point at the Principality of Monaco – the world’s second smallest sovereign state to begin a week-long expedition with a distance of 1,225 km and nearly 24 hours behind the wheel.
Originally scheduled to take place in 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic, Cavalcade’s route is designed for participants to explore some impressive landmarks such as the Italian Riviera and Places with charming scenery such as Côte d’Azur, Riviera di Ponente, Alpine passes. The journey through these landmarks is an unforgettable experience for customers coming from distant countries and continents such as the United States, Arabia, New Zealand and many other countries.
Home to one of the oldest Grand Prix races in the world, the Principality of Monaco is no stranger to the image of supercars. However, when 144 Ferraris gather at the same time, they still impress and surprise thanks to the colorful lineup of supercars and Hypercars.
On the first day of the journey, the convoy traveled along the Mediterranean to the ancient Roman city of Sanremo before turning inland and traveling on a mountain road 547 meters above sea level to reach the reserve. Preserve the history of Vicoforte to have a car show here. Then, journey back to Monaco so the convoy can share stories and memorable moments while having dinner together.
After hitting the Italian coast, the second day of the itinerary takes in the Côte d’Azur, starting from Monaco to Saint-Tropez and then a return journey of winding high roads and Tunnel in Provence mountain. Day three caught all 144 cars that made the 370km journey from Monaco to France, up between the passes of the Maritime Alps, before crossing the border into Italy at the Isola 2000 ski resort and ice through the Piedmont countryside back to Monaco.
After averaging 350km per day, the final day is a more leisurely ride of just 140km to allow each group to experience the Col de Turini, a 1607 meter long route. The motorcade completed their journey with a grand parade in Monaco and a final performance in the Place du Casino, before the motorcade joined Prince Albert of Monaco for a pre-gala aperitif and meaningful charity auction.
