Alfa Romeo Tribute Tour through Italy
Day 1: Driving Chiantishire
We will wait for you at Florence airport and accompany you to your hotel, where the journey will begin with lunch together. You will then receive a detailed briefing on the Nostalgic vehicles and the use of the road book. You drive behind the wheel of our Alfa Romeo Spider through Chianti , one of the oldest wine-growing regions in Italy. Today there is also a tour and tasting in a former monastery, where wine has been grown since the Middle Ages. The evening will be spent at your leisure
Day 2: Mille Miglia and the Crete Senesi
Today’s route passes from one spectacular picture perfect postcard to the next. Southwest of Siena, the winding country roads are interspersed with hamlets such as Ville di Corsano, Radi, San Giovanni d’Asso. You’ll reach Pienza partly on Via Cassia, an ancient Roman road. Pienza is home to the Pecorino di Pienza. For lunch you can choose between this town, described by Pope Pius II as the epitome of a medieval small town, or neighbouring Montalcino, made world famous by the Brunello di Montalcino, in a unique panorama location enthroned in vineyards. The highlight of the afternoon is driving along the ridge of the volcanic crater landscape of Crete Senesi, surrounded by loamy soil that falls away sharply.
Day 3: Volterra and the Etruscan
Today we head west on a winding dream road via Poggibonsi first to Volterra. Etruscanism and the Middle Ages await you in the "City of the Wind", whose location offers a view of the Tyrrhenian Sea on a clear day. On our detailed city tour you will get to know a charming, hardly visited archaic city away from the tourist crowds of neighboring San Gimignano. The rest of the route follows the course of the river Cecina over the "Colline Metallifere", an ore-rich landscape in the southwest of Tuscany. Medieval villages perch like swallows' nests on hilltops, and later in the afternoon you will reach your hotel again. The extensive day of driving ends with a memorable dinner at the Bottega di Volpaia.
As a crowning finale today you will experience a city work of art of the Gothic: Siena, the "secret capital" of Tuscany. One last time you will drive with the Alfa Spider through the Chianti to Siena. Our art-historical city tour will bring you closer to the Palazzo Pubblico, the Piazza del Campo (scene of the famous Palio di Siena) and the Cathedral of Santa Maria. Of course, there will also be time at leisure before lunch at Monteriggioni Citadel, immortalized by the Italian national poet Dante in his "Divine Comedy". Afterwards, it's time to say goodbye to "your" Alfa Romeos.
