Day 2: Meet with tour conductor at hotel. Arese, a few kilometres from Milan, historic site of Alfa Romeo. The great “Biscione” factory, now owned by Fiat, has now transferred its plants to the south of Italy, but in its place you will find a very interesting museum with a display of cars that have made history. For lunch we will go to Emilia, a region chosen for its gastronomy, to the Castello di Torrechiara restaurant in Langhirano. In the afternoon we will stop-off at a winery in the area for some wine tasting accompanied by cold cuts. Stay on a quiet farm on the Modenese hills.

Day 3: Modena is where Maserati is manufactured, well known for its luxury, quality and design. We have the chance to visit the plant, show room and the shop. We remain in the car world and in the province of Modena. For lunch we will have a taste of Ferrari in the “Cavallino” official Ferrari restaurant in Maranello. In the afternoon, a visit to the museum, the official shop and the famous Fiorano circuit. With a bit of luck we may even see the Ferrari racing cars being tested. Back to our farm.

Day 4:
Another day and more cars… To Modena for a visit to the precious collection of the historic “Stanguellini” cars, a manufacturer who began building cars in 1910. To Bologna, a lively main town of the Emilia region, for lunch and some free time. The city has a lot to offer, especially a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere and friendly people. In the afternoon another great legend. We move to Sant’Agata Bolognese for a visit to the Lamborghini factory. Sports cars, performance and “Italian Style”.

Day 5:
From our farm we head for Imola, home of the circuit dedicated to Enzo and Dino Ferrari where one of the Formula 1 Grand Prix takes place. Guided external visit of the circuit, retracing the route and stopping at the most famous bends (see “options” for internal visit). A stop at the “Enoteca Regionale” wine shop in Emilia Romagna of Dozza to tickle our taste buds. We will stop for lunch and part of the afternoon at the “Outlet City” of Castel Guelfo where you will find a wide choice of famous labels at bargain prices.

Day 6:
Dairies are found near Modena and in the province of Parma. We will have the chance to visit one of these dairies where you can see the “art” of producing the famous Parmesan cheese. Just before lunch, for the car and motorbike lovers, a view of “Umberto Panini’s” private car collection. In the afternoon, the grand finale, a local producer of Parma ham and Culatello will show us the secrets of the maturing process. Leave for Milan in the evening.
