More than 45 Italian cars have arrived in Dunedin for the weekend.

Co-ordinator of the Latin by the Lakes event Mike Hill, of Ashburton, said some made the journey from Christchurch as part of the biennial tour.

Others travelled from elsewhere or were already in Dunedin, he said.

The event had been running since 1995 and involved trips which either had a lake at their final destination, or along the way.

The cars ranged from a 1919 Lancia Kappa to a 2013 Ferrari 458 Italia.

The convoy will head to Brighton Domain via Roslyn and Mornington, arriving at 9.30am. At 11am it will travel through Taieri Mouth, Waihola and Outram to Middlemarch for lunch, before returning via Macraes, Dunback, Palmerston and Upper Junction.
