Depart Verona Porta Nuova train station, making the 50-minute journey by high-speed train to Bologna Centrale station. On arrival, meet up with your guide and group of no more than 14, and hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned minivan.
Hear about what’s ahead from your guide, and travel to your first stop: a local Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese factory. Take a tour to see how this creamy delicacy is made, and then stored and aged for up to 30 months. Then, enjoy a tasting of the much-admired, delicious cheese.
From here, continue to Modena, the world’s balsamic vinegar capital. Learn about this 'black gold' at a factory, sample some varieties, and discover how and why Modena came to lead the way in its creation.
Move on to a prosciutto factory to taste some of this silky, cured ham. Hear fascinating facts about its history and curing, and savor a tasting or two.
Next, switch your attention to cars, with a visit to the Ferrari Museum in Maranello. Show your skip-the-line ticket to bypass the main lines, and explore the halls, seeing vintage, contemporary, and Formula I-winning models, and learning the story of the premier marque.
Hear the roar of the Ferrari engine and see the wind tunnel designed by Renzo Piano, where the cars’ aerodynamics and performances are tested. Perhaps add to your experience by choosing to test-drive a Ferrari (additional cost) yourself, with an instructor at your side.
Afterward, head to a local restaurant, and enjoy a 4-course gourmet lunch teamed with wine, water, coffee, and a digestif.
Finally, enjoy a drop-off at Bologna station for your return train ride. Alternatively, choose to stroll or shop in Bologna independently, and then head back to the station independently.
Your trip finishes when you arrive back at Verona.
