Tuscany Now & More is excited to announce the launch of a selection of vintage car experiences in Italy. Through a new partnership with local classic car company, Sprintage, and inspired by the legendary Mille Miglia Race, guests can now hire a vintage car for a real taste of ‘la dolce vita’ and the road trip of a lifetime. As a true cultural mecca, Italy is the ideal destination for travellers keen to experience history, cuisine, art and explore spectacular landscapes. Tuscany Now & More has been the leading provider of luxury private villa rentals across Italy for over thirty years and is delighted to now offer car enthusiasts and road trippers an iconic Italian driving experience.
Mille Miglia Classic Car Road Trip
While driving a classic car it would be rude not to explore part of the route of the iconic Mille Miglia, the famous 1,000-mile Gran Turismo figure eight-speed race that ran from 1927-1957. Inspired by the route of the famous race through the Italian countryside, Tuscany Now & More can arrange a self-guided tour for guests along the well-driven route or even for an expert tour guide in a pace car to lead the way, whilst guests cruise behind in their vintage wheels. The villa rental company also has plenty of luxury properties along the route for those who are driving for the marathon, not the sprint.
Tuscany Now & More Vintage Car Experiences
Tuscany Now & More will arrange for Sprintage to deliver and collect dream cars direct from their luxury villas. The portfolio of iconic vintage cars ranges from a classic red and cream Volkswagen Maggiolino Cabriolet to a ‘James-Bond-Grey’ Alfa Romeo GT. It doesn’t get much better than the thrill of the open road behind the wheel of a classic car. Throw in jaw-dropping scenery and tempting places to linger over lunch – it is set to be a holiday hard to beat.
A Tuscan Road Trip
This route largely traces the route of the Mille Miglia but for a little pampering, guests can pull over the vintage convertible and unwind in the thermal baths that dominate the central Renaissance piazza at Bagni San Filippo, or opt for something wilder and bathe in the natural hot springs in the woodland outside Bagno Vignoni. Alternatively, drivers can jaunt through Tuscany’s terracotta-roofed towns, renowned for Renaissance art and architecture, find a charming little piazza for a morning cappuccino, or take time over a leisurely, indulgent Italian lunch. The route begins at the medieval village-fortress of Radicofani, with its unparalleled views of the Val d’Orcia, and follows the panoramic Via Cassia, an ancient Roman road that leads into the heart of Siena.
Prices start from 550 EUR / £475 for two people and the tour includes car rental from 10.00am to 6.00pm, the cost of petrol/gasoline, car insurance and the price of the pace car with an English-speaking tour guide.
