Automotive Traveler is both an online, digital-only magazine and a companion website dedicated to the proposition that great cars, great roads, great people, and great destinations are an almost unbeatable combination.
Come join the editors of Automotive Traveler this March on a 12-day tour of Tuscany and Abruzzo, behind the wheel of a classic European roadster. Choose from more than 20 different models from Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Porsche, MG, Morgan, Triumph, Matra, Innocenti, Citroen, and Volkswagen to transport you back to truly experience La Dolce Vita.
Over a year ago, on a visit to Tuscany and Abruzzo, touring Italy in a classic Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider, Automotive Traveler Editorial Director Richard Truesdell had an idea. "I was sitting on the terrace of my hotel, having breakfast with my friend of more than 30 years, looking out over the Tuscan countryside and said, Susan, we need to find a way to share this experience with others. She said, 'What's stopping you?' Now, a little more than a year later, we're ready to share the experience with others on the first Automotive Traveler classic car tour of Tuscany and Abruzzo."
Making the program work is an experienced team on the ground in Italy, in this case Nicky Pellicciotta and Leonardo De Flaviis and their organization "Sapori e Colori d'Abruzzo" who are coordinating the arrangements and with Truesdell, developing the itinerary. “It’s one that gives a true sense of Italy in the fifties and sixties, something like you remember from your favorite movies” says De Flaviis who calls Pescara on the Adriatic coast home. “All while not being too challenging for the vintage cars, some of which are now more than 40 years old.”
And when Truesdell says all inclusive, he means it. The package price includes four-star accommodations in Rome (two nights), Abruzzo (five nights) and Tuscany (four nights), a choice of one of eight different cars with fuel and insurance, three gastronomic indulgences daily including wine, maps and guidebooks, all activities (tastings, cooking schools, truffle hunting), guides who know Italy but speak impeccable English, all transfers (including luggage valet services), gratuities, local taxes, and a complementary spa treatment for you and your significant other at the Villa Danillo in Abruzzo.
The complete itinerary and additional details are now posted on the Automotive Traveler website.
