On this trip, you gain a first-hand and hands-on impression of automotive history. The legendary Mille Miglia 2020 involves several hundred participating vintage cars, and it gets the hills of Tuscany trembling as it passes. You are there with them, stylishly seated at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo Spider built in the 1950s.
Tuscany and the “Mille Miglia”
Mille Miglia – the most beautiful race in the world
Day 1: Drive through a famous wine-growing district
At lunch in the hotel you meet your fellow travelers and the tour staff. We then introduce you to the Nostalgic classic car fleet and explain the roadbook. The first stage leads over lonely country roads so that you get used to »your« Alfa Romeo. In the early evening, you visit a former abbey where wine has been made since the Middle Ages. Dinner at leisure.
Day 2: A Stop at the Mille Miglia by the Sea
The exact route of Italy’s most famous car race is not yet known for 2021, but one thing is certain: Today automotive history will be within your grasp. The legendary “Mille Miglia” with several hundred participating classic cars thunders along the coast in the west of Tuscany to the south. The Mille Miglia convoy stops for lunch in the idyllic coastal town of Castiglione della Pescaia. You will drive with our Alfa Romeo Spiders through the Maremma to the coast to Castiglione della Pescaia. It will be a perfect moment for us to meet and greet drivers and see the vehicles up close–and-personal. After this varied and extensive day of driving, you can look forward to dinner together in the Nuvolari Bar, where we thrill over all the beautiful cars.
Day 3: The Mille Miglia on the Way North
This year we’re celebrating a unique event: for the first time, Nostalgic Driving Experiences meets the Mille Miglia convoy twice! Immediately after breakfast you will set off for the Crete Senesi. This impressive stage leads partly on old pilgrimage routes southwest of Siena into the Val d’Orcia. The Mille Miglia participants started in Rome and are expected in Arezzo around noon. Today you have a second opportunity to join the Milla Miglia as well as to be part of the lunch stop in Arezzo! Did you miss the chance to see a racer you’re following or that special car? Today is the day! In the evening, after the event, we will accompany you for Tuscan cuisine high up in the Chianti hills and conclude another amazing Mille Miglia day.
Day 4: San Gimignano
With its impressive medieval skyline, San Gimignano is located high up on the bucket list. The winding, old country road Siena-Firenze leads you from Castellina to Poggibonsi, from there over little driven secondary roads to San Gimignano. The small town is located in the upper Elsa Valley and is rich in art and culture, it is world famous because of the high number of its remaining noble family towers and because of its almost unchanged medieval appearance. The majestic, sleek towers characterize the town silhouette, nicknaming it “medieval Manhattan”. In 1990, the historic old town has been declared World Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO. After the visit, there will be time for an individual lunch break, before heading to the last stage towards the citadel of Monteriggioni. Nearby you will be leaving “your” Alfa Romeos, we will accompany you back to Florence airport or to the hotel if you have arrived by car.

Tuscany is one of the most picturesque regions of Italy. It impresses with its unique and diverse landscape. Vineyards mingle with olive trees and alternate with the original bareness of the countryside. This sparseness is broken up by lanes of towering cypress trees. Little-used roads wind their way up hills and run through small sleepy villages. Like a backdrop from a 1950’s Italian film.
With Nostalgic you drive on selected routes in Tuscany. Many of them were also sections of the legendary Mille Miglia race. But Tuscany does not only make the hearts of car enthusiasts beat faster. It also offers lovers of culture cities such as Siena and San Gimignano and places of interest such as the fortress at Monteriggioni. Even in the weeks before the world-famous horse race, the Palio, in Siena, you might be able to watch the teams during their rehearsals and preparations for the big race. They stroll through the city in their period costumes and practice on their drums preparing for the perfect entry to the Piazza del Campo.
Close your eyes and imagine gliding along the dream roads of Tuscany in a classic Alfa Romeo. You enjoy the wind in your hair, the driving experience, the scenery, good food and the unique wines of Chianti.
