What You Can Expect

Emilia-Romagna Day Trip and Food Tours from Florence

Combine your visit to the Ferrari Museum with a Vinegar and Cheese tasting experience!

Your Ferrari tour and food tasting will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide and hop aboard your coach. Watch the city streets disappear as you travel through the Tuscan landscape and into the stunning region of Emilia-Romagna.

Stop just south of Modena, in the small town of Maranello, to pay homage to Italy’s favorite sports car at the Ferrari Museum. Check out the lavish collection of new models and memorabilia and learn the fascinating history of these handsome rides, including their place on the Formula 1 circuit. 

If you’d like, hop behind the wheel of a Ferrari or Lamborghini for a test drive at an additional expense. Under the guidance of an instructor, see what it feels like to hit the road with one of these beauties. Otherwise, simply enjoy some time inside the museum to wander and explore at your own pace.

Continue on with your guide to a balsamic vinegar producer to see how this regional specialty is made. Take an intimate tour of the estate and sample an array of sweet blends, all available for purchase to enjoy at home.

Afterward, sit down to a 4-course meal at an authentic Italian establishment, complemented by a glass of wine or soda. Digest with a coffee and head over to a famous cheese factory, where the celebrated Parmigiano-Reggiano is made. Learn about the aging process that gives the cheese its tangy taste, and watch how the milk is churned in vats.

Your tour will conclude will a smooth ride back to Florence, where you’ll be dropped off at Piazzale Montelungo in the early evening.

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!

Bill absolutely loved it. Not only the Ferrari museum is worth a trip, but also the cheese farm had a great car and tractor collection. The balsamico factory was quite interesting too. One should check with customs about food products before large purchases.

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!

The tour was exceptional in that we saw lots of countryside, the Ferrari Museum with an included ride in a simulator, had a delicious several course beverages including wine, cured meats, pasta, meat, dessert meal at a country restaurant, toured and tasted at a balsamic vinegar rural enterprise, and in addition to the planned parmesan cheese tour we saw the organic dairy operation and antique tractors and automobiles.

This was a really fun tour and well worth the money. Although the Ferrari Museum is headlined, this tour is much more. It includes balsamic vinegar maker and a tour of a dairy/cheese maker -- both were really interesting. We especially loved the lunch stop at a country trattoria where food and experience were very special. Our guide was very informed and a lot of fun.
