Pre convention tour – East (3 days, price per car)

The east tour will begin in Golden, CO on the west side of the Denver metro area, on Sunday July 18th.  It just so happens that this day is also the day of Automezzi, the largest Italian car, motorcycle and scooter show in Colorado.  We will meet at the show in the morning.  Tour participants will have their choice of entering their Alfa in the show, or just parking their car and attending the show.  We will leave just after lunch and head for the Double Tree hotel in Colorado Springs.  This first day will give you a nice taste of what is to come, with a beautiful drive in the Colorado Rockies.  Days two and three (Monday and Tuesday) will be out and back drives from the hotel that feature some of the best roads that Colorado has to offer!
This tour is limited to 26 cars.  
This tour will involve minimal walking, and is ADA friendly. We have made arrangements with a hotel near Automezzi for the Saturday night prior to the tour for those interested.
