What You Can Expect

Italian Food and Museo Ferrari Small Group Tour from Bologna Including Gourmet Lunch

Visit a Parmigiano-Reggiano factory on this full-day tour

After getting picked up at your hotel in the center of town, Bologna Centrale train station, or Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport, commence this exciting small-group tour that combines culinary deliciousness and fast, luxurious cars. On the drive there, listen to your guide inform the group what is in store for the day, as well as, some of the history of food and Ferraris in the region. 

The first stop is a cheese maker. Learn how Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is made. See how the workers churn the creamy goodness and where they store and age it for up to two and a half years before it's ready to eat.  And, of course, sample some of the incredible cheese. 

Hop back in the van and head for Modena, the capital of balsamic vinegar. Learn all about this 'black gold' and why and how Modena has perfected making it. Then head to a prosciutto factory to sample some luscious cured ham. Learn about the long curing process and about the history of the meat in the area. 

Transition from culinary to cars for the next stop: the Ferrari Museum. Stroll around the museum learning about the history of the posh automobile maker, take a guided tour and then even opt to test drive a Ferrari (at own expense) with a teacher beside you. 

Finally, conclude the tour with a four-course lunch at a local eatery (see Itinerary for a sample menu), complete with wine and water and followed by coffee or a digestif. 

After lunch, get dropped off at your hotel, the railways station or the airport.

The owner of the company that took us was phenomenal. We were the only couple and did not want to disappoint us so he took us personally n his own car to the places on the tour and we were given a first class exploration of the outer regions of Bologna: discovering cheese, ham and fast carsFerrari. Just adored his passion and personality and made my husband's lifetime dream fulfilled. We salute you Andreas!

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed a great day out of Bologna! The cheese factory visit was amazing, being able to see the whole process of the production. The visit to the balsamic vinegar producer was a very nice surprise, much better than we expected! The food we tried throughout the day was really nice and we really enjoyed it. Overall it was a great day and I would definitely recommend it!

This was a very organised tour and was excellent value for money. We managed to travel to so many places in the one day and it is a great way to experience the prosciutto, parmesan and balsamic vinegar and !!! visit the Ferrari museum. In the middle of this day we also had a six course gourmet lunch thrown in at a beautiful restaurant on the hilltop with unlimited wine, beer, water and espresso. Book the trip, it is fantastic! Andrea was a great guide and made sure we were looked after and managed to maintain the enthusiasm of this group with his humour and energy. Such a fantastic day!

We met Chiara at the train station. There were only 3 couples so that was good for a walking tour. We walked to the walls and crossed into the town, visiting a small chocolate shop where we were served caffe of our choice and some pastries. I needed to eat gluten free and they brought out a savory GF pastry just for me - how nice. We also stopped at another small shop for a snack. We had a relaxing wonderful lunch in the anfiteatro with wine. Chiara combined a walking tour with these stops for a wonderful morning tour and light lunch, and pointed out good places to eat later. We really enjoyed it.
