Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este – The world’s leading Concours d’Elegance

Located on the breathtaking shores of Lake Como, Villa d’Este provides an exclusive setting for Concorso d’Eleganza, a prestigious beauty contest for classic and vintage vehicles. Held during the last weekend of May, the event sports an almost unparalleled atmosphere infused with class, style, and spectacular automotive masterpieces. With its 90-year tradition, this celebration of motoring excellence is one of the longest running car shows in the world.

The main event takes place at the iconic Grand Hotel Villa d’Este, which adds a particular flair of elegance worthy of royalty. Concorso d’Eleganza allows for only a select group of participants to join, making the entire show even more exclusive. The carefully curated selection includes some of the rarest classic cars, designed between the 1920s and 1980s.

Concorso d’Eleganza won’t fail to amaze those whose passion lies with motorbikes, either., As with iconic cars, the event specialists carefully pick out some of the most impressive bikes in categories like still in action (100+ years old), concept bikes, and two-wheeled guards (bikes with military history).

The awards ceremony is, of course the main highlight of the event. The jury led by Lorenzo Ramaciotti determines the winner of the BMW Group Trophy. The visitors also get to vote for the winner of the coveted Coppa d’Oro Villa d’Este award.

The special combination of prestigious location and iconic automobiles puts Concorso d’Eleganza among the most exclusive car shows you’ll ever experience.
