Tuscany: Experience the Gran Premio Nuvolari live

This trip includes all the highlights of a vintage car trip to southern Tuscany: breathtaking landscapes, delicious food, and a classic rally of its own. Tazio Nuvolari was a racing legend during his lifetime, and in his honour the course of Mille Miglia was modified with part of the race now being held as “Gran Premio Nuvolari”. This trip across autumnal Tuscany allows you to see the historic Mille Miglia race cars at the remake of the “Gran Premio Nuvolari”.

Your Car
Alfa Romeo. Just the sound of the name awakens associations with Italy, and with sporty cars that really stand out from the rest. For some, it means design in its highest and most complete form; for others, it means that yearning by those in the North for things Italian.

For Italians, Alfa Romeo is a part of the homeland.  This is your chance to explore that homeland and drive a true classic of the landscape.

Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Chiantishire
You will be expected by our tour guides at Florence Airport and escorted to your hotel. You will get to know your fellow travelers over an aperitif, after which you will receive a detailed introduction to the vehicles and the use of the road book. The country roads of Chianti have little traffic and are a good way to get to know your Alfa Romeo. Our team will provide you with the latest addresses and insider tips for your individual dinners in Siena.

Day 2: Pienza and 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.

Day 3: Gran Premio Nuvolari roaring through Tuscany
The pretty sister of the Mille Miglia is coming to Tuscany. The exact route of the Gran Premio is not yet known, but one thing is certain: today you will experience automotive history within reach. Approx. 280 teams will fight for the prestigious victory at the Gran Premio Nuvolari over 1,000 km. In Siena, the participants drive over the beautiful Piazza Il Campo, which gives you the opportunity to get up close and personal with the valuable racing cars. The highlight is the ride in the Alfa Romeo Spider among the racing teams, let the spectators at the roadside cheer you on and enjoy the unique flair. In the evening we accompany you to an insider’s tip of Tuscan cuisine.

Day 4: Across Chiantishire at the wheel of an Alfa Romeo
One of the best known Wine regions Italy bears the black rooster on its coat of arms: We are talking about the Chianti Classico. On the wooded hills between Siena and Florence, wine was already cultivated in Roman times. At the beginning of the 20th century, 33 winegrowers gathered to have their wine and the name “Chianti Classico” protected from imitators. Via Radda, Greve and Castellina in Chianti you return to your hotel, where you say goodbye to “your” Alfa Romeos.
