Visiting Northern Italy is an experience in itself, but the good people at Grand Hotel Tremezzo want to take your trip to movie star levels with a new offer involving the iconic Alfa Romeo Duetto Spider.

It’s a classic car, a cherry-red two-seater convertible with the sensuous kind of design favored by movie directors and stars. And there’s no better place than Lake Como to head out on a joy ride—just don’t forget your driving gloves and scarf.

For interested guests, the hotel will provide a suggested itinerary, including the nearby Villa Passalacqua, which dates back to the 18th century. You can even add on a picnic, something this hotel is calling a “chic-nic” for an additional 250 euro (around $282).

The first option will get you two hours with the car for 240 euro ($270) and the second offers a full day for 285 euro ($321). The third option comes with another decision to make. Guests purchasing the I Just Can’t Get Enough package can book the car for one day at 420 euro ($474), two days for 620 euro ($700), or for three days for 720 euro ($812).
