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.

If you are into Ferrari and #39;s ithis is a really nice tour in which you can also test drive one if you like as well as visit the meuseum, the Balsamic vinegar making/tasting was a really wonderful experience and last but not laest the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese making was amazing, highly recommended.

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.

Great day with Julio and Raul!
It was a small group tour which made it very pleasant and personal.
My husband loved the Ferrari museum and I loved very rustic experience of Tuscany.
Will use again.

One of the seven days my wife and I were in Florence we took the Viator Emilia-Romagna Day Trip with Museo Ferrari Admission and Food Tours and it was an outstanding day one of the highlights of our 12 days in Italy. We only had seven people on the tour and we had an excellent driver/guide, Luca Marrocchella who spoke perfect English. Luca first drove us to the town where the Ferrari museum is located and before going to the museum we were able to drive a Ferrari Formula One simulator and choose which Formula One race course we wanted to drive. For an additional fee, we could also drive one of several models of Ferrari out on the street. Driving the simulator was good enough for me feeling driving the simulator was well worth the price of the day tour. We then had free time at the Ferrari museum before driving to a country restaurant for an excellent meal with wine. Then on to a tour of a family Balsamic winery where learning the production process was extremely interesting. Following the Balsamic tour, we visited a family Parmigiano cheese producer a large producer of Parmigiano in Italy. The lady who owns the cheese facility did not speak English, however, Luca was able to interpret the explanation of the cheese process and also have all of our questions answered. Luca made this overall day tour one which we will not forget - we highly recommend this tour.

This tour was amazing! We were very pleased with everything. The tour guide was so knowledgeable about all of our stops and was so helpful. All of the details were taken care of, from the tour bus to lunch and everything in between, that we truly didn't have to do anything except enjoy our time on the tour. We wanted a tour of the Ferrari Museum and received so much more than we could have imagined! Definitely worth the time and money :

This tour was lead by Lucca of Ciaoflorence Tours and Travels was very knowledgeable of the places we visited and saw on the trip. The tour gave us plenty of time to wander around the Ferrari museum and was the followed by an excellent lunch at a country restaurant named Bolognina. This was followed by a trip to Acetaia Serent vinegar and olive oil producer, and then onto Agricole Caretti to see how Parmigianno Reggiano was made, starting from the dairy farm to their store.

What fun! We didn't understand beforehand that it would be a combined Vespa and Fiat tour, but it worked out ok. Our guide, Fabio, was extremely knowledgable, FUN, and very attentive. The lunch was fabulous ... At a private farm overlooking a beautiful hillside. This was the highlight of our Florence trip. The only negative was that by following the Vespas you don't get the Fiat above 3rd gear ... And it is pretty slow going. But, the views of Florence are breathtaking!

This trip is not only fantastic just because of the Ferrari drive. To my surprise, the cheese factory and balsamic factory are equally interesting. And with a wonderful guide, we really enjoy this trip! Must Go!!

Our tour guide and bus driver were very knowledgable and kind. My husband drove the ferrari and I was a passenger. I wasn't feeling well for the rest of the tour and I was allowed to rest on the bus and the driver checked on me to make sure I was ok and the tour guide.

Our tour guide was Aldo, and he was excellent. If you can request a guide, he is one to ask for by name.

There was one other couple on our tour so it was very much at a personal level. The Ferrari museum was great and included drive time in a simulator -- lots of fun there. From there we had an outstanding lunch of italian cuisine, followed by a Basalmic vinegar tasting, which was educational and fun. Last stop was a parmesan cheese producer where we sampled the wares, and as an added bonus, this cheese producer also had an on-site museum of Maserati cars and old motorcycles. Talk about a bonus, all because Aldo knew where to go and had some great personal connections.

Mind, we are not sports car enthusiasts but this was a very fun day. Highly recommended. If you have deep pockets, you can even drive a Ferrari.

One of the best tours we experienced in Italy.
We were transported in a private black people mover which was comfortable.
Aldo our guide was engaging, knowledgeable and friendly. He took us on a tour of the Ferrari museum, a traditional balsamic vinegar estate and a parmigiano cheese farm.
Aldo was at all times courteous and spoke English very well. He also wanted share his passion for food and cars.
I would highly recommend this tour with Aldo!
