Cruise Around Lake Como in a Giulietta Spider
Driving around Lake Como’s magnificent villas, ancient villages and enchanting landscapes is gratifying enough, but exploring the area from behind the wheel of a 1961 Giulietta Spider or of a Lancia Fulvia Coupè Rally? That’s a dream come true, whether you’re a car collector or someone who appreciates the superlative beauty of classic Italian cars.
The Giulietta Spider, introduced by Alfa Romeo in the mid-1950s and produced for only a decade, is coveted among car lovers for its rarity, movie-star style and serious sports-car power. The Lancia Fulvia Coupè Rallye S is known for its victory during the Rally World Championship in 1972. Now, Four Seasons Hotel Milano is putting you in the driver’s seat of this Italian icon for your very own road trip to Lake Como. Your adventure begins at the Hotel, where you’ll get the keys to one of the two vintage roadsters chosen by you and be ready to hit the open road by 10:00 am. Put down the convertible top as you and your companions enjoy the day discovering the beautiful town of Como and its surroundings with an unobstructed view. Stop for a reserved lunch at one of the inviting restaurants near the lake, and browse the local shops before continuing your drive along the lake’s mountain-rimmed shores. Later enjoy a private cruise ship tour on Lake Como, without a doubt the most suggestive and exciting way to catch its romantic atmosphere and admire the tiny and quiet villages. This experience also offers you a unique view of the villas, as their botanical gardens scatter the shores of the enchanted lake. You will have the chance to choose your favorite boat in order to enjoy this experience in the best way possible.
Navigating this charming landscape in a car that made—and remains part of—the history of the Italian automobile industry will be an authentic experience you won’t soon forget.
