As a special 50th birthday treat my husband booked 3 vintage cars on our trip to Montepulciano. Driving Alpha Romeos through Southern Tuscany might just be the most wonderful thing I dreaded doing. I know it’s an experience of a lifetime and a romantic thing to do, but I’m a girl with a midlife preference for comfort. Hiring vintage soft-top cars to power along dusty tracks through Tuscan vineyards, some without seat belts (or I suspect suspension) turned out to be hugely exhilarating and memorable.
I can’t pretend it was the most comfortable road trip I’ve ever experienced. I was shaken to the core and coated in a film of dust upon arrival to all the Tuscan hill top towns. The cars rattled as well as roared. But, despite myself I flung my arms into the air as we sped through some of the most stunning countryside I have ever seen…
PIN this for later!
The best way to know if driving Alpha Romeos through Southern Tuscany is for you, is to enjoy this Vlog. Better than me putting it into words…
We booked these vintage Alpha Romeos through Your Secret Tuscany.
This is NOT a sponsored post, I’m just sharing the love.
The cars turned up on the back of a car transporter. It took the men no time at all to get them off and park them up in our villa driveway.
There was quite a lot of leaning.
Even I had a go.
The cars come with a vintage-style hat, driving gloves and scarves for the ladies.
