Tasty travels through Italy's vineyards: in the Unimog Class III off-road bus.
In the middle of Italy's Tuscany region lies the Monti del Chianti, the Chianti mountains. Already in the 8th century, this green belt of hills was used for growing grapes. And to the present day, it holds vast importance when it comes to producing high-quality, delicious red wines. A tour through the region can be likened to a discovery tour both of the region's countryside and its culinary culture. Particularly appealing are food and wine tours through the infamous Chianti wine cellars and among the vines of the characteristic Sangiovese grapes.
As enjoying the most beautiful panoramic sights over Tuscany's landscape is somewhat of a privilege which has to be earned, some of these exclusive vantage points are located far off the beaten track. So to ensure guests can still visit these locations, tour guides need the right vehicle. In collaboration with Tomassini Style, an expert for special transport requirements, Mercedes-Benz Italia Special Vehicles has developed a very special vehicle solution: the Unimog Class III off-road bus.
Wine and food safari in the off-road bus.
The green all-rounder is already in operation on a wine and food safari through Tuscany's hilly landscape. For day trippers, the journey is anything but ordinary thanks to the real feel-good atmosphere which the Unimog provides. Aboard the bus, tourists to Tuscany head out along the trail of sun-ripened Chianti, whatever the weather and whatever the terrain.
But what is it that makes the Unimog so impressive off-road?
Impressively comfortable equipment.
Besides the driver and co-driver, a further 26 passengers can take up a place in the Unimog Class III off-road bus. The truck-cum-bus offers comfortable seats with shaped backrests and integrated head restraints, whose height, length and incline angle can be adjusted. A visual highlight: the LED ceiling lights with variable colour setting along the entire length of the aisle. The perfect way to guarantee the right mood on-board. The large windows on both sides of the passenger compartment make for a comprehensive view of the landscape.
