The Mille Miglia in Lucca

The Mille Miglia was a race, held from 1927 to 1957, from Brescia, near Milano, to Rome and back to Brescia. It is now a parade of over 400 classic cars (pre-1957), some of which participated in the original race.
This year, on May 17th, The Mille Miglia passed through Lucca.
And when I say "trough Lucca", I really mean it. The cars drove all through teh city, including through places where cars are never allowed: on the Walls, Piazza Anfiteatro, Piazza San Michele, via Filungo... everywhere. It was really a imp[ressive sight to see all those beautifully kept vintage cars driving on the old cobblestone streets of this (even older!) city.
