Tuscany at the steering wheel of an Alfa Romeo Spider
Day 1: Driving Chiantishire
At the hotel you meet your fellow travellers and the escort team. 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.
Day 2: Mille Miglia and the Crete Senesi
Today's route is lined up with a classic postcard motive to the other. In the southwest of Siena, winding country roads are repeatedly interrupted by small hamlets such as Ville di Corsano, Radi, San Giovanni d'Asso. Partly along the old Roman road Via Cassia, you reach Pienza, the home of the „Pecorino di Pienza“. For your lunch break, either the one from Papst Pius II. small town converted into the ideal of a medieval town; or neighbouring Montalcino, made world-famous by the „Brunello di Montalcino“, enthroned in a unique panoramic position amidst vineyards. The highlight of the afternoon is the crater landscape of the Crete Senesi, steeply sloping clay soils, on whose ridge the country road winds along. Dinner will be served at the Enoteca Nuvolari in Castellina in Chianti.
Day 3: Volterra and the Etruscan
First it is off westwards on a curvy road via Poggibonsi to Volterra. Etruscan and
medieval history awaits you in the »City of Wind«, where, if the weather is good,
the Tyrrhenian Sea can be seen. During a comprehensive guided tour, you learn
about this charming, hardly visited archaic town, away from the tourist-trodden
neighbouring San Gimignano. You follow the Cecina river over the »Colline Metallifere«, a typical south-western Tuscan landscape. You will be delighted eating at the legendary 'Bottega di Volpaia' at the joined dinner.
A worthy finish today is the gothic city extraordinaire: Siena, the secret capital of
Tuscany. On our art history guided tour of the city you learn more about the
Palazzo Pubblico, Piazza del Campo and the Santa Maria Cathedral. Of course
you have some free time here before lunching in the Monteriggioni Citadel which
was made famous by the Italian poet Dante in his »Divine Comedy«. Then it is
time to say farewell to »your« Alfa Romeo.
