Italy by vintage car’s seven-night Rome-Milan itinerary, which includes four days of driving, costs $14,550 per person, based on two people sharing a room and a car. The prices for all trips include accommodations, admissions to various venues, the services of a mechanic and English-speaking tour guides, and many meals, as well as insurance, gasoline, parking fees, and any tolls. (Chauffeurs are available for an additional fee.) Car choices are listed on the company’s Web site; group trips include a mix of vehicles, while individual car selections also can be reserved.

Shorter itineraries include two nights and three driving days through Abruzzo or the Sannio wine country of Abruzzo, Molise, and eastern Campania, and five nights and three driving days on the Amalfi Coast or through Tuscany. Italy by Vintage Car also offers a seven-night, six-driving-day Tuscany with Kids trip with an antique Italian family car, and the company will also arrange custom itineraries throughout Italy.

At the beginning of your trip, you receive a map book with suggested routes and step-by-step driving directions. All cars are equipped with Italian cell phones that have a tour manager’s number on speed dial.
