If just being in the land that spawned such racing legends as Lamborghini and Maserati isn’t enough, why not rent a Ferrari to drive around in?
Red Travel (because yes, Ferraris should be red) offers one-eight day self-drive tours through Lazio, Umbria and Tuscany. Worried about getting lost? Or wondering where on earth you’ll put your luggage in that little two-seater? Never fear, Red Travel has you covered – a guide drives the pace car (in which your luggage is also transported) and you simply follow the leader in your Ferrari. And because they know how strenuous it can be to drive such a powerful automobile, the hotels you’ll recuperate in each night are first class – some even include spas – as are the meals.
Hold onto your hats, folks, I’m about to talk prices… The four-day round-trip adventure from Rome to Siena costs a mere €4300 per person, plus €150 per person for insurance. Oh, and in case you were thinking that sounded relatively reasonable, don’t forget the deposite for the car – that starts at a cool €15,000.
Italian Rail Pass, anyone?
