Welcome to our 2019 and third fabulous visit to Italy.  Following our very successful 2017 and 2018 programs, we are gearing up for 2019.  We’ll be including most of the highlights from the past trips and have added some new additions.  Again, we’ll experience car manufacturers, museums, designers and, of course, incredible food.  Highlighted are extraordinary days, with the new Alfa Romeo Museum, the ‘send off’ day at the Mille Miglia in Brescia and the final stage gathering at Monza.  Sandwiched between these highlights are visits to manufacturers and showrooms like Lamborghini, Ferrari, Ducati, Maserati and naturally, Alfa Romeo.  The hotels and locations mirror the quality of this program. We’ll be repeating visits to a couple of superb wineries and enjoying some of the finest lunches and dinners Italy has to offer. We are also adding on one day from the original tour to ensure we get to see and do everything.

The tour was originally conceived and formulated by AROC President, Cindy Banzer. “We wanted our members to have a real Italian experience, one that will introduce the history of the country’s amazing car industry, but also one surrounded with private visits and cloaked with great fun and camaraderie.  The tremendous accolades we have received from past travelers have been truly rewarding, and we are sure our third offering will be as successful”.  Once again, the tour has been carefully planned and scheduled in collaboration with Steve Austin’s Great Vacations.  Steve is well known for his Classic Car Tours to Monaco, the Mille Miglia, Le Mans, the Goodwood Revival and Festival of Speed.    

The program is inclusive of all transportation, accommodations, visits, and tours.  All breakfasts and dinners or lunches* are included.  Arrival and Departure airport is Milan’s Malpensa Airport.  The tour price does not include air transportation to or from Italy. Along with Cindy Banzer, Steve Austin will accompany the tour and act as organizer and guide.

*The main course for the day may be a Lunch or Dinner (3 lunches, 7 dinners). Please note, Lunches in Italy are big, very much main courses.
Ladies! There are no side tours planned for individuals. However,  there are two or three days where one can easily split from the group and enjoy a relaxing day at the hotel, shopping or whatever.
