Mandarin Oriental, Milan tempts anyone planning a luxury road trip in Italy with three self-drive tours that allow guests to explore the surrounding region in a vintage Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spider sports car built in 1955.

With itineraries taking in some of Northern Italy’s most attractive and lesser-known destinations, the self-drive tours allow guests to immerse themselves in regional culture and learn first-hand from local artisans about their world-renowned craftsmanship. 

Guests can explore the much-loved Lake Maggiore, which stretches from north of Milan into Switzerland, the pretty town of Bergamo that treasured for its steep narrow streets lined with beautifully preserved Medieval and Renaissance buildings, and Cremona, a community celebrated since the 16th century for its violin makers, such as the world-famous Antonio Stradivari.

The tour also serves lunch and guests can call upon a personal road assistant driver at an additional charge to ensure a smooth rental experience from start to finish. The service includes valet parking, car wash, refuelling, technical support and voice connection between vehicles, along with the possibility, at all times, for guests to switch to a modern car.
