You will have to drive more than 1.000 km along Italy on an “Ape calessino”, and you are supposed to do that in 7 days. Just a starting point, and a finish line. No set route, no pampering along the road, no toll free number to complain with, no concierge, no room service.
Just you, your friends or family, and the road, at a “warp speed” of 50 kmph. And for the night, rest in a true italian Farmhouse in one of agriturismo.it's selected locations! A room per night and per team is INCLUDED!
No pre-set stops, no routes, and just the time to wonder around wherever you like.
It is our philosophy for truly discovering the hidden beauty of Italy!
Freedom is a matter of having time, and opportunities, to let the unpredictable happen! and traveling on a rickshaw is the best way to actively search for the unpredictable. A great Italian poet, Eugenio Montale, once wrote these lines on journeys:
“And now what my trip will become? I too carefully studied without knowing anything. Unforeseen is the only hope. But they tell me it is fool to say“
LIVING AND LOVING ITALY
Every turn, every hill, every tree can hide something unexpected.“there is a crack, a crack in everything that’s how the light gets in“
