Day 8: Friday, Sep 13
Our Legendary Photo Rally (~160 kms)
After a lovely breakfast on the terrace, both drivers and navigators will get a detailed rally briefing. We will drive southwest to Torrenieri, San Quirico (great shopping) and we will make a pit stop in Bagno Vignoni where the Romans enjoyed the local hot springs where you’ll see their 2000-year old free-flow showers.
From there we will drive through the countryside past Chianciano, ending up in Montepulciano where we have arranged secure parking. Montepulciano is a major producer of food and drink and is known world-wide for its fabulous Vino Nobile wine. Montepulciano is also known for its pork, cheese, “pici” pasta (a thick, rough, chewy variant on spaghetti), lentils, and honey. The rally will be completed before lunch – which will be served on the terrace of a lovely restaurant in the heart of Montepulciano –
Caffé Poliziano. After lunch, you will have a chance to stroll the streets and do some shopping. You may drive back to Bibbiano on your own. Tonight will be our famous rally dinner where “valuable” prizes will be awarded.
Overnight at Casali di Bibbiano.
Day 9: Saturday, Sep 14
Drive to the Magnificent 5-Star Interalpen Hotel (~600 kms)
Today, we will have an early breakfast at Casali di Bibbiano and have our entire luggage, including all the stuff we purchased, ready to be loaded onto the luggage truck for transfer to Telfs, Austria. We will then say farewell to Alberto and his wonderful staff and take off in our PORSCHES.
As we depart from Casali di Bibbiano, there will be some country road driving as we head towards Florence and from there the toll road (or Autostrada in Italian) will take us straight north into Austria.
Our drive today takes us through three different regions of Italy: Tuscany; the wine country with its many castles; and the scenic South Tyrol across the Brenner Pass. We will check in at the Interalpen Hotel in the afternoon where we arranged Canapés and drinks upon arrival, weather permitting, on the terrace of this lovely Alpine Hotel.
We will have time to relax and explore the hotel after arrival and enjoying our Canapés. We will meet for dinner in one of the stylish restaurants at the hotel. You will sleep well tonight in Alpine splendor!
Overnight at the luxurious Interalpen Hotel.
Day 10: Sunday, Sep 15
Interalpen Relaxing Day
Say Good Morning to your well deserved Relaxing-Day!
After sleeping in this morning, start your day with one of the best breakfasts you have ever had. Besides a wide selection of bread, cakes, cheese, breakfast meat, smoked salmon and other fish specialties, the chef will prepare your individual desires, like pancakes and eggs to order.
After breakfast you have various options to spend your day. Rent a bicycle, go hiking, visit the city of Innsbruck, or enjoy a relaxing massage in the beautiful Interalpen SPA.
In the late afternoon we’ll meet for our pre-dinner drinks, followed by another outstanding dinner.
Have a good night’s rest at the magnificent Interalpen Hotel Tyrol.
Day 11: Monday, Sep 16
Drive back to Stuttgart (~430 kms)
Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the Interalpen Hotel. Be sure to have your luggage ready to be loaded on to our luggage truck for transfer back to the Hotel Graf Zeppelin in Stuttgart. After checking out of the Interalpen Hotel, we will drive over the most scenic Alpine road, weather permitting, the Silvretta Hochalpenstrasse.
We will stop for lunch at one of the fabulous Rest stops on the Austrian Autobahn. From there, we will head back to Stuttgart, driving primarily on the Autobahn. The section of the Autobahn between Kempten and Ulm has no speed limit and we should have plenty of opportunity to renew our membership in the 150 mph Club, if you like.
We will check into the Hotel Graf Zeppelin. Your luggage will be in your room. Unfortunately, we will also have to return our PORSCHES today. Tonight, we will enjoy a wonderful dinner at Pier 51.

For those who have been there or prefer not to visit the Factory, we have an optional tour to the impressive Baroque Castle Ludwigsburg.
