To quote Jeremy Clarkson – Every real driver has to have owned an Alfa Romeo – well we can give you the best of both worlds; all the pleasure of driving a classic Alfa but without the worries of ownership. And where else would you want to drive ‘your’ Alfa Spyder, with the roof down and the warm breeze in your hair, than through the stunning countryside of Tuscany.
Undulating passes, scenic lakeside roads, rolling hills and all first class treatment throughout with splendid accommodation, excellent dining and of course hundreds of kilometres behind the wheel of a classic Alfa. Arriving at the airport, you will be transferred to the rendezvous point at the Alfa Collection (where there are up to 20 Alfa Spyders available!) to pick up the cars. After a quick briefing you will be off in a convoy run through the scenic Tuscany hills.
Each car will have a route and maps but you will be following a lead Alfa driven by a local enthusiast so all the best roads will already have been picked. There will be stops along the way for you to swap over cars, enjoy an espresso or two and a late lunch before arriving at our overnight stop. Depending on your preference this can be at an hotel or (our choice) this will be at a classic Italian Farmhouse Villa – part of the superb Agriturismo group. Deep in the Tuscany countryside, all the rooms have en suites and there is a swimming pool in the grounds to relax after the drive. Dinner is cooked by the patron using local ingredients and the wine will come from a vineyard just a few kilometres away. The evening is free to wind down or take the Alfa out for a spot of night-time driving – the choice is yours. After breakfast the route continues to wind through the beautiful scenery with more stops before arriving at our second Farmhouse Villa. Tonight you will be able to help cook the dinner under the watchful eye of the Patron who will give a wine tasting and cooking demonstration. Just like the previous night you will be well and truly satisfied with the wonderful food. For the final day the beautiful roads continue and after arriving back at the Alfa Collection HQ a transfer will take you into the centre of the city where you can enjoy the sights before heading to the airport.
