This was the perfect day trip for my husband, who is a big Ferrari fan. He got to test drive a Ferrari on city streets! before we went to the museum. The museum has an extensive collection of Ferraris. I enjoyed the balsamic vinegar and Parmesan cheese tastings as well.
I took my 17-year-old grandson to the Ferrari museum and we had a blast! The cars, the history, all was fantastic. On this tour we could have rented a Ferrari and driven around town. Some in our group did that and had so much fun! We enjoyed a stop for a delicious lunch with good wine, then toured a Parmesan factory to learn about cheese, then toured a beautiful farm that produces amazing balsamic vinegar. I highly recommend this tour. The guide was great!!!
Please do not waste your time. Less then an hour spent at the museum, which is what husband and son wanted. Guide very rude and opinionated about the wrong things. Worst tour ever on.
What a great day. Luca was our tour guide and quickly whisked us out of the busy city on to the auto strata for our trip to Maranello. Our first stop was at Motorsport a few doors down from the Ferrari Museum where we could do a 10 minute session in a F1 simulator. If that isn't enough, you can drive a actual Ferrari road car starting at 70 Euro for 10 minutes around the area. Their gift shop had a good selection of Ferrari souvenirs cheaper than the museum plus a 10 discount. After, you take a walk to the Ferrari Museum and in there you can take in all the rich history on undoubtedly one of the worlds most well know marques. They have a great archive of historic road cars and F1 race cars. Please note there is a second museum in Modena that i believe concentrates more on the life of Enzo Ferrari that is not on this tour. Next we were taken to a local restaurant for an amazing lunch with antipasto, pasta, a meat dish and dessert. After lunch we headed over to Acetaia Leonardi Balsamico for a great lesson on the production of quality Balsamic vinegar. There was several tastings of which one was 100 years old. Your view of balsamic vinegar will never be the same. Basically the stuff you have purchased in your local supermarket is rubbish. Our final stop was at Lo Spaccio Bio Hombre, a parmigiana reggiano cheese maker. That was another great stop and much knowledge was garnered from our great guide. This was a great tour that I would recommend. You experienced the best cars, best food, best balsamic vinegar and best parmigiana reggiano cheese. Ciao!
Ferrari trip was supposed to give water for long bus trip. None to be found. Cheese and vinegar demonstrations were very worthless even as fill ins.
This was an excellent tour, the tour guide was informative and very personable. It captured all the highlights we wanted to visit and the lunch was delicious. Tastings at the vinegar and cheese factories gave us an opportunity to compare the different products which also added to the experience. We would highly recommend this tour.
Best tour we took in Florence when we visited May-June 2017! Giulio out guide was the best! Lorenzo, our driver, was great, as well. Giulio was charming and very engaging. He provided the tour in both English and Spanish and was very respectful of everyone. We stopped first at a Parmesan factory where he and the owner, Gina a very old and lovely woman fed off each other and both were very informative and entertaining. Clara and her husband at the Modena balsamic vinegar were lovely, as well. We then had lunch, one of the best if, not the best meals, we've had all trip! After lunch we visited the Ferrari museum and my daughter drove a Ferrari. The day was perfectly paced and Giulio provided excellent information about the region and where we visited without putting pressure of any kind. Thank you, Giulio, for making this our best trip!
