Tour along the magnificent Croatian Adriatic coast












A UNIQUE FIAT 124 SPIDER & ROADSTER TOUR FROM JUNE 10 TO JUNE 25, 2014

Mr. SANY ANTONIO from Croatia (click his name to read more about him and his passion for the 124 Spider) is the initiator of a magnificent 15-days tour next June when the roads are not that full and the weather is NOT TOO HOT yet. A perfect period in which hotels and good private accomodations are still available.

Two years ago Sany Antonio wrote: It would be nice to meet some new Spider enthusiasts / friends, and for sure it will be an unforgettable Spider tour, with the top down along the ADRIATIC COAST, over to the Islands, then to DUBROVNIK and back to Split and in the mountains to PLITVICE LAKES NATIONAL PARK.
If needed, I can arrange accommodation during the roundtrip, here on the Northern coast where I am at, or in Dubrovnik where one other Spider Club Croatia member has rooms/apartments too to rent, right down on the water.

In my own Spider collection today, I have a 1970 BS1, 1971 BS1 USA Racing, 1975 CS1, 1983 DS Pininfarina Azzurra, 1958 1200 TV Pininfarina Spider, 1957 1200 Pininfarina Spider (in restoration process), 1986 Maserati Spider 2500 Zagato, 1976 A.R Alfetta GT Sprint Veloce 2000 Injezione and a 1968 Fiat Dino Spider (in restoration process).

CROATIA - THE MEDITERRANEAN AS IT ONCE WAS . . . .

Now - Spring 2014 - Sany Antonio repeated his unique offer and wrote:
I hope to hear from you and meet you and some of your Spider enthusiasts from Northern Europe (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, United Kingdom) here in Croatia for a magnificent long Spider round trip along the Adriatic coast .... with the top down. Also other open roadsters are more than welcome !

Anyhow, I seized this new opportunity right away and booked meanwhile a motorail train that will bring me and my Fiat 124 Spider in one night from Düsseldorf (Germany) to Villach (Austria) close to the Slovenian border to avoid driving boring highways southwards. From there it is only 250 kilometres to SELCE (near Rijeka) where Sany Antonio will start his unique Croation Adriatic round trip.

Total length of the 15 days trip in Croatia about 2000 kilometres.
Needless to say, that your Spider (or Roadster) should be mechanically in top condition.
