Odyssey Italia – the right crowd and no crowding

Posted on February 16, 2017.

A luxurious rally experience awaits on our exclusive Odyssey Italia (10-24 September) as we explore the legendary rally roads and landscapes of the Mediterranean, enjoying superb cuisine and staying in first-class hotels in world-renowned locations such as Porto Cervo. However, the dates announced on December 31 for the Rallye Elba Storico (a round of the FIA European Historic Rally Championship) overlap with our planned visit, which means the island will be extremely crowded and some of the glorious roads we wanted to use will be closed for special stages. Determined to make his first Rally Round event a very special one, and certainly unwilling to be crowded out of his favoured five-star restaurants, epicurean Clerk of the Course Kim Bannister has therefore modified the provisional itinerary outlined in the brochure. We we will now sail directly from Sardinia to Tuscany and spend more time in that stunningly beautiful region (Kim’s Elba recce will not be wasted, as we shall return in Spring 2019 – see our Save The Date page). We only have a limited number of places left on this year’s event, so if you would like to join us in September please contact the Rally Office as soon as possible!
