A possible, beautiful itinerary for you
Tours of a Select Vintage
Arrival in Rome. From your five-star hotel as a base, you set out for a day of shopping in the most stylish and fashionable boutiques. It is a way to honour Italian style before setting out on your adventure. After fine dining, you take a tour of the city on the luxury vintage cars. It is a privilege to drive on this classic roads, but to do it on these icons of the motorworld is something reserved for a select few.
Italian Sightseeing and Tuscan Thrills
In the morning, you are briefed by a Ferrari expert (your Italian sports car of choice), and you can hardly wait the moment when you are given the freedom to take this work of art on the road. It roars, it carves the wind, it is a red speck made for movement and excitement. You head to Tuscan landscapes, and your faithful steed takes you from one culinary delight to the next. Tomorrow, you will head out to Siena, where a famous horse race ― the Palio ― takes place twice each year. You wonder how your black stallion would fare, so you take out to the road for all to see.

Hairpin Pilgrimage and Supercars
The passion for cars is lived in Italy. You drive to Modena, where you get VIP access to the Pagani Supercar Factory. It feels almost like a pilgrimage, as you get to see what’s behind the creation of some of the fastests cars in the world. But Italian cars cannot be dissociated from Italian roads, and there is no better handling test than the winding roads of northern Italy. You drive towards Cortina d’Ampezzo and the Dolomites, commonly dubbed the most beautiful mountains in the world. The alpine landscape holds to crown of the trip: as you drive east you must brave Passo dello Stelvio, a hairpin-riddled, vertiginous wonder of a road. Now, that is art in motion!
Fastest Way to Milano
Before heading to Milano and ending your holiday on a fashionable high note, you get an exclusive opportunity: to drive track-exclusive cars in Autodromo di Franciacorta. These machines are too wild for the open road, and you must tame them in the track. It can be intimidating, to be behind the wheel of such powerful autos. Fortunately, you get a professional pilot to come along, and with his expert advice, you find yourself flying over the tarmac. Your co-pilot winks. You carved perfectly through that apex, and the home stretch is yours… full-throttle seems not only possible, but the only polite thing to do.
