Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Travel: Vintage car tour to Tuscany.

Day 1: Classic car trip through Chianti

Your transfer from the airport to the hotel will give you a good ide a of what to expect in the upcoming days. Your trip will get off to a grand start when you check into boutique hotel Borgo Scopeto, a former aristocratic estate, from where you’ll be able to enjoy the magnificent view over Siena. Your heart will start beating even faster when you start the ignition for the first time and drive off in your Mercedes-Benz SL classic car. The rolling hills of Chianti between Florence and Siena, with their famous wineries, are symbolic of Tuscany. The world-famous cultural landscape of Chianti is characterized by its old castles and palaces, as well as dense woodland and vast forests. And of course, itʼs important to pay a visit to one of the charming wineries. Stop off at one of the world’s oldest wineries, also the ancestral seat of a noble family, and enjoy a welcome dinner.

Day 2: Roads of your dreams to Pienza

Fantastic scenery that will set your heart alight lies ahead of you today. Follow quiet country roads through the Crete Senesi, characterized by clay, cypress trees, expansive fields of grain and oak forests. There, where Tuscany is at its most beautiful, you will find the small town of Pienza, designed by Pope Pius II as an ‘ideal cityʼ. Your tour guide will not only show you the castle and impressive Renaissance palaces, but youʼll also have the chance to stroll through small, winding alleys and along the boulevard of the Corso Rossellino. After all that culture, your classic car will be eager to get going again. On the way back, you will be impressed by the crater-like landscape. In the evening, the old town of Siena invites you to enjoy a stroll, and itʼs up to you to decide where to dine tonight.
