Bella Italia.

What to expect.

Spectacular countryside, diverse culture, excellent cuisine and fine wines – Tuscany offers the lot. This seven-day tour takes you along delightful stretches of road from Lake Constance and through Verona, Perugia, Montalcino and Montepulciano to Florence, and then back again. Along the way, there’s time for some individual sightseeing and lunch at a pretty roadside trattoria. At some of the stopover destinations, Germanspeaking guides take you on a tour of the town and, in the Chianti region, an oenologist presents a selection of wines for tasting.

Arrival and accommodation.

Participants make their own way to the meeting point at the Mercedes-Benz Offroad centre in Moos by Lake Constance.
