Gran Turismo Adriatica - here is the route for 2017

Published 2016-11-11 by Administrator

Our road trip to the Adriatic sea in May was a blast. Some 30 super cars screaming on the fantastic coastal roads of Croatia was just a mental experience. Pushing the car as much as you dare on serpentine roads, with a stunning view of the Adriatic sea. Pure, addictive, fun.

So was our visit to Sarajevo. It was something out of the ordinary to pass the border to Bosnia and Hercegovina with a trail of Ferraris and Lamborghinis behind. A surreal experience both for the driver and all the spectators along the road.

We immediately knew it. We had to come back here again. The roads, the food and the people. All top notch. This has to be the worlds most underrated destination with your super car.

Saturday 6 May - day one - Prague/Czech Republic

Welcome to Prague and the Grand Mark hotel. A five-star hotel right in the middle of the city. Here we check-in to the event and get our welcome packs with badges, the road book with maps and lots of other useful things for your trip with us. Later the same day, at 20.00, we have dinner in the hotel restaurant.

Here you will also meet the other drivers, coming from Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Germany and other European countries. All in all, about 60 new and old friends that you will share all the fun with the coming week on the road.

12.00 - Gran Turismo check-in desk opens in the lobby of Grand Mark Hotel
20.00 - Dinner and briefing in the hotel

Sunday 7 May - day two - Salzburg/Austria

This first day we don't start driving until 14:00. Before, we have brunch in the hotel and prepare our cars. Our first goal - Salzburg - is about four hours driving away. We will be driving south through the Czech Republic and then in to Austria before we reach Salzburg.

12.00 - Brunch in the hotel, Prague
14.00 - Leaving hotel
17.00 - Arrival to the hotel in Salzburg *****
20.00 - Dinner in Salzburg old town

Monday 8 May - day three - Portoroz/Slovenia

Now it is time to hit the Adriatic coast. We do this by continuing driving south through Austria. The really interesting roads start in Slovenia, especially the part heading to the coast from Ljubljana. This night we stay in the coastal city of Portoroz. Dinner in the harbour at 20.00.

10.00 - Leaving hotel
17.00 - Arrival to Kempinski Hotel, Portoroz *****
20.00 - Dinner in the harbour

Tuesday 9 May - day four - Zadar/Croatia

We are not sure if you are ready for this. Because this day you are going to experience some really good driving roads. Oh, and the view of the Adriatic Sea is just stunning. Zadar is beautiful, too, and Hotel Bastion is the best in town.

10.00 - Leaving hotel
17.00 - Arrival to Hotel Bastion, Zadar ****
20.00 - Dinner in the hotel

Wednesday 10 May - day five - Mostar/Bosnia

Forget everything you think you know about Bosnia. This place is amazing. The drive to Mostar is amazing, too. So is the city and the famous bridge. Very few places in Europe have the same rich history as Mostar. The Bosnian food is great, too.

10.00 - Leaving hotel
17.00 - Arrival to Hotel Mepas, Mostar ****
17.00 - Welcome party at the Hotel
20.00 - Dinner in Mostar old town

Thursday 11 May - day six - Dubrovnik/Croatia

Seen a show called Game of Thrones? We bet you have. There is a reason why they shoot it in Dubrovnik. You will understand when you get here. Kings landing. This night we stay in Hilton hotel and have dinner in Dubrovnik old town.

10.00 - Leaving hotel
17.00 - Arrival to Hilton Hotel, Dubrovnik *****
20.00 - Dinner in Dubrovnik old town

Friday 12 May - day seven - Montenegro

Back to the Adriatic coast and the breath-taking scenic roads of southern Croatia and Montenegro. We will pass through the city of Kotor and continue to Budva. Budva is, after Dubrovnik, a classic Adriatic coast destination, albeit much less known to tourists.

11.00 - Leaving hotel
15.00 - Arrival to Avala Resort, Budva *****
20.00 - Dinner in Budva old town

Saturday 13 May - day eight - Split/Croatia

This last day of driving we head north from Budva towards Croatia. We will drive the same awesome coastal road back the same way we came, all the way to Split. In Split, we stay in Hotel Park, arguably the best hotel in town. This final night we spend in Split harbour in a seafood restaurant.

12.00 - Brunch on Avala terrace
13:00 - Leaving hotel
17.00 - Arrival to Hotel Park, Split *****
20.00 - Dinner in Split harbour
