Driving through the Tuscan Hills
“We are all pilgrims who seek Italy,” so wrote Goethe longingly and we couldn’t agree more. Drive through cypress-strewn hills with exhilarating freedom while staying at Hotel Savoy in romantic Florence. Our new partnership with SlowDrive allows you to choose your dream vehicle from their incredible selection of stylish cars and enjoy a memorable escape through wildflower-lined roads, grapevines and village piazzas. SlowDrive believes in helping you rediscover the wonderful pleasures of driving and the sensory experience that only a vintage car can give. Central to their philosophy is curating authentic moments, allowing you to embrace the excitement of hearing the roar of the engine and feeling every vibration on the steering wheel. Leave the bustle of the city and slow down to get lost in the joys of a scenic journey through the Chianti countryside.
As ever, our Concierge team is always on hand to help curate your perfect itinerary. All services are bespoke to combine the charm of vintage cars, history and natural beauty into one unforgettable and unique experience. We will plan all the pre-arrival details so you can set off on the ideal Tuscan road trip and the drive of a lifetime. Treat your senses to this picturesque and pristine landscape, enjoying total relaxation with the wind in your hair.
Hotel Savoy and SlowDrive also offers assisted private tours to guide guests through the winding roads of the enchanting Italian hills with the unique feeling of driving into some of the most beautiful sights in the country, such as Siena and Pisa. Soak in the wonders of the spectacular landscape as you explore the remote country lanes with us. SlowDrive also provides guided vintage tours which can shared with loved ones. Starting at the typical Tuscan town of Fucecchio and driving towards Chianti, it will take you through luscious vineyards, olive groves and charming medieval villages, such as memorable San Miniato with its white truffles and Renaissance palazzi, including the ancestral home of the Bonapartes. Sigh with happiness as you pause in shaded golden-stoned squares to sample local wines and take stunning photographs, creating memories that will last a lifetime.
There is nothing like the freedom of a road trip to explore away from the well-travelled paths and get under the skin of authentic local life. Tuscany has something delicious (quite often literally) to discover around every citrus-scented corner and we are here to hand-pick the very best of undiscovered Italy with the emotive experience of driving across an exotic location. This is Italy by road - there is no greater adventure.
Bringing together the SlowDrive philosophy of providing the simple joys only the wheels of a vintage car can, we promise the ultimate Italian experience to cherish forever.
