The day will begin with a short transfer from your hotel in Florence to the starting point of the tour: a Villa just outside Florence. Here you will meet the Ferrari Travel Director before to start of the tour. While having a coffee, or a cappuccino or a fruit juice, the tour Director, an expert Ferrari driver and technician, will explain the differences between the various models (Ferrari 458 Spider, Ferrari 458 Italia, Ferrari California and Ferrari F430 Spider), the peculiarities of the engines (8-cylinder or 12-cylinder) and will also explain how to handle the F1 paddle-gear shifting behind the steering wheel. Then, you will learn how to drive a Ferrari, just before departure.
The road that links Florence to Maranello will be a real “experience of a Lifetime" for you: during your Ferrari tour departing from Florence you will also enjoy the outstanding views of several interesting natural landscapes of the beautiful area between two Italian regions: Tuscany and Emilia Romagna.
Once arrived in Maranello first stop will be at The Ferrari Museum for a visit. The Ferrari Museum was officially opened on Enzo Ferrari’s birthday February 18th, in 1990, a year and a half after the founder had passed away. It is divided into themed areas designed to fulfill the expectations of enthusiasts of all kinds, from motor racing fans to expert historic car enthusiasts : it has an exhibition area of 5 main halls (the Competition Hall, Cittadella Ferrari and Formula Uomo, the Victories Hall, the Grand Tourer Hall and the Temporary Exhibitions Hall) as well as the Ferrari Store, the Café, driving simulators and photo point.
After this interesting visit it is time for lunch. The restaurant we reserved for you is in a walking distance from the museum. You will be able to taste dishes prepared with the freshest ingredients of the Emilia Romagna region and, of course, you can also taste delicious wines of this region. Here, in this typical restaurant you will be able to experience the legendary kindness and the tradition of gastronomy of the Emilia Romagna region. After this delicious meal you will be ready to get back in your Ferrari, for your return journey to Florence. Usually on the way back we suggest guests to switch passenger/driver. The way back will be as pleasurable as the route done in the morning enjoying the surrounding landscapes.
The Ferrari Travel Director with the Technical Assistance staff will follow this experience from the beginning to the end, always ready to explain all kind of curiosities that client might have about the world of the Red “cavallino rampante” ("prancing horse") as well as to help and support in case of technical issues with the cars.Once in Florence there will be a private car to transfer you back to your hotel.
