There are few sports cars as iconic as Ferrari, and as the vehicle's official home, the small town of Maranello is a place of pilgrimage for Formula One fans. Less than an hour from Bologna, it’s a popular choice for a day tour—here are your options.
Discover the history of Ferrari and Italy’s Motor Valley with a visit to the Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena and the Ferrari Museum (Museo Ferrari) in Maranello. Book a skip-the-line ticket, with or without an audio guide, and enjoy the interactive exhibitions, including Formula 1 simulators and an impressive collection of original cars. For a more personalized experience, opt for a private tour and combine it with a visit to the Ducati, Lamborghini, or Pagane museums; souvenir shopping at the Ferrari factory store; or an Italian-style lunch.
There’s no better way to experience the power of a Ferrari than getting behind the wheel for a test drive. Get your adrenaline pumping as you zip around the country lanes of Emilia-Romagna, or put your foot down and pick up some speed as you drive on a real racetrack under the supervision of an expert driving instructor.
