In the front seat of your choice of some of Ferrari’s top-range vehicle models – including a Ferrari California T, Ferrari 458 Speciale, Ferrari 458 Spider or the brand new Ferrari 488 Spider (upon request with a surcharge) – experience the excitement of driving an Italian classic in its illustrious homeland. With more than ten-years of experience in organising luxury Ferrari tours, Red Travel ensures all needs are catered to on the road, taking care of the transportation of your luggage, and servicing your Ferrari on a daily basis by refuelling, cleaning and parking your personal ‘Prancing Horse’ to the highest of standards, as well as providing any required technical assistance every step of the way.

Having arrived in style in the country’s capital, receive a fabulous welcome to your tour from the distinguished city of Rome, where you will have the chance to explore its timeless treasures before indulging in Michelin-starred dining among the ancient architectural masterpieces. The following morning, a short drive to the coast will take you to meet your vehicle for the next three days – scenically awaiting at the harbourfront, you are sure to feel the excitement mounting as your Tour Director briefs you on the details of the latest models, before putting the key in the engine yourself and experiencing the adrenaline-pumping effect of the roar of the engine! Tracing the route of the legendary Mille Miglia race, accelerate through the winding roads of Lazio and Tuscany, with the wind in your hair, stopping off for lunch, coffee or a light bite to eat en route to your next stop. Pausing to recharge at the exquisite wellness retreat, Fonteverde Tuscan Resort & Spa, discover the honey-toned streets of Siena and the Renaissance-era opulence of Florence, where you will spend the final night of your tour, giving you plenty of time to explore your sumptuous surroundings.

Rome and the region of Tuscany enjoy mild climates, and the summer months are a fantastic time to enjoy the cities and inland regions. If you would like to avoid the crowds that summer can bring, April and May, as well as September and October, also offer sunny days with slightly milder temperatures. Most of the rainfall occurs between November and February, when temperatures are also much cooler.

Rocco Forte Hotel de Russie

Having arrived in elegance at the illustrious Rocco Forte Hotel de Russie, it is time to explore your wonderful surroundings. Set within a beautiful old building, with a modern design respecting the original classical architecture, enjoy a prime location with beautiful views over the stylish Piazza del Popolo, where the Italian ambience can be savoured into the evening.

After a rest, set out on a tour of the ‘Eternal City’, home to a heady mix of attractions, colourful street life, chic shopping and the beautiful Vatican City. Delve back to ancient times and discover the city’s dazzling treasures, from the amazingly preserved temple of the Pantheon and the Coliseum of the Roman Empire to crumbling catacombs and age-old churches, while St Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican offers a glorious example of Renaissance design.

Iconic artists have left their mark across the city. Paintings by Caravaggio. Frescoes by Raphael. Fountains by Bernini. Michelangelo’s astonishing works in the Sistine Chapel. Baroque façades, Byzantine mosaics and so much more. You may also wish to stop by the Ferrari store in preparation for the following day’s drive with your own 'Prancing Horse'!

Before you go, sit and reflect atop the Spanish Steps and cherish the scene, or ponder the Trevi Fountain to make sure you’ll return to this extraordinary city another day. As evening falls, conclude your stay in Rome with a Michelin-starred dinner in one of the many acclaimed restaurants of the area, before returning to your hotel room for an enchanting night in the heart of this infatuating city.

It’s hard to match the romance of the five-star Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte Hotel, which is ideally situated between the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo in the heart of the city’s most fashionable area. This splendid hotel offers an oasis amid the surrounding bustle – and not just because of its extensive terraced gardens, which are perfect for balmy evenings.

Follow the Mille Miglia Route

+

Upon arrival at Civitavecchia’s Riva di Traiano, enjoy a welcome aperitif in the exclusive Sporting Yacht Club followed by a dedicated Ferrari briefing, as your vehicle for the duration of your tour is presented to you. With your personal Tour Director, receive a thorough introduction to the world of Ferrari, as you learn the differences between each model and their engines, and take guidance on how to handle the F1 paddle-gear shifting behind the steering wheel.

After a short practice-drive, it is time to hit the road. Take on the mythical Mille Miglia, the birthplace of Brescia’s passion for motor-racing, and breeze past Tarquinia and Viterbo, stopping in Bolsena for lunch, before continuing on to Acquapendente and Radicofani. Led by the Tour Director, driving his own Alfa Romeo Giulia (which is constantly in touch via mobile radio system), spend the morning discovering the breathtaking panoramas of the rolling Italian landscape, sweeping along the curves in the road for the ultimate driving pleasure.

Drive to Pienza

Continue on your journey with your Ferrari to Pienza.

Pienza

+

After lunch, continue on your second day of the tour with a stop in Pienza, the birthplace of Pope Pius II, who was inspired to transform the village into what he considered to be a utopia of Classical times. Here, the UNESCO-listed town is said to be one of the finest examples of Renaissance architecture with beautiful landmarks, such as its towering white-stone cathedral, along with Palazzo Piccolomini, created by Classical sculptor and architect Bernardo Rossellino, and Palazzo Borgia, home to the Museo Diocesano, where an important collection of artworks and religious artefacts are preserved for modern day appreciation.

Fonteverde Tuscan Resort & Spa

+

When you have finished exploring the charms of Pienza, continue on in your Ferrari to Fonteverde Tuscan Resort & Spa, where you will check in for your second night in Italy. Originally built as a renaissance palace for the Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici, this exquisite resort is an exceptional place to unwind and recharge, with a breathtaking location overlooking the natural hot springs. An indulgent offering of panoramic pools, hot tubs and pampering treatment rooms fully embrace their spectacular surroundings, utilising mineral-rich waters and the restorative power of nature to inspire a genuine sense of therapeutic healing.

Lovingly restored to its former beauty, the richly decorated guestrooms boast breathtaking views over the lyrical landscape of Tuscany and the hills of Siena. After taking a short rest, it’s time for dinner. Ferdinando I, the restaurant at Hotel Fonteverde Tuscan Resort & Spa, serves excellent Tuscan cuisine, created by the Master Chef, Salvatore Quarto. In a charming and elegant atmosphere, irresistible Mediterranean flavours and authentic recipes form a menu that is both nutritional and satisfying.

Drive to Siena

After a restful evening, followed by breakfast in the hotel, return to your Ferrari and depart for your first stop of the day, Siena.

5

Siena

+

Arrive in Siena, Italy’s finest Medieval city, and enjoy your free time to explore it. Famous for its hosting of the Palio horse race, a twice-yearly event dating back to the 17th Century that sees a selection of horses race through the streets, the beautifully preserved gothic architecture and UNESCO-listed buildings make it an essential stop for anybody passing through Tuscany.

While other Italian cities impress with Renaissance splendour, Siena’s charm lies in its sleepy character and ochre-coloured streets. The heart of the city is the central piazza, Il Campo; the red-brick social hub makes a perfect spot for people watching over a cappuccino or enjoying an evening aperitif. Il Campo is dominated by the Torre del Mangia tower, standing at almost one-hundred meters in height – climb the four-hundred steps to the top and be rewarded by the best view over the city below. You also must admire the magnificent Fonte Gaia, the largest fountain in the city. The water that flows from it still travels through the mediaeval passages that carry water from the countryside some twenty-five kilometres away.

In a Piazza above Il Campo, stop to see Siena Cathedral, a spectacularly gothic white marble masterpiece with elaborate interiors featuring invaluable treasures by Pisano, Donatello and Michelangelo, plus frescoes by Pinturicchio. As you would expect of such a historic and richly cultural city, there is also a substantial number of museums to visit, filled with collections of prestigious works of fine art and fascinating historical relics – see one of the best painting collections at the Museo Civico or Pinacteca Nazionale.

Drive to Florence

After a spot of lunch in Siena, take back to your Ferrari and depart for Florence where you will spend your final night.

Florence, Italy

Staying at

Four Seasons Hotel, Florence

+

Having left behind the idyllic streets of Siena, be prepared to be astounded by the Renaissance splendour of Florence. Check in to the Four Seasons Hotel Florence for your third night in Italy, and take a look around your surroundings before enjoying dinner in one of the Michelin-starred restaurants of the area. Savour the city at its beautiful dusk, when the sun casts a warm glow over Ponte Vecchio and the terracotta roofs of this totally absorbing city.

The next morning, begin your fourth and final day of the tour by heading off to experience this illustrious city’s many treasures, with either a guided tour or on your own terms. A small city with a bumper-sized line-up of artistic treasures, Florence is like a living museum. Little wonder it’s a magnet for tourists.

Book tickets in advance for the Uffizi Gallery, stuffed with priceless Renaissance art from giants like Michelangelo, da Vinci and Botticelli. Also to see Michelangelo’s marble statue of David on display at the Accademia Gallery.

Mooch about the piazzas and hidden backwaters brimming with character. Check out the churches of Santa Maria Novella, San Marco and Santa Croce. Admire Brunelleschi’s dome of Il Duomo, a mesmerising edifice of the Renaissance and illustrious city landmark.

Staying at

Four Seasons Hotel, Florence

+

Renowned as one of Florence’s grandest hotels, Four Seasons Hotel, Florence is an ideal base for exploring the birthplace of the Renaissance, with many of the city’s major landmarks on its doorstep. Comprising two Renaissance buildings and a tranquil private park, the property was once owned by Pope Leo XI. The exquisite 15th century palace known as the Palazzo della Gherardesca is home to the main hotel, bars and most restaurants, while the smaller, former 16th century convent houses 37 rooms and suites. This wing is ideal for weddings and other special events, with its own entrance and check-in area. Suitable for families and couples alike, the hotel offers extensive spa and fitness facilities and a gorgeous outdoor pool, with stunning views of the gardens. Food lovers will seek out the Michelin-starred restaurant, Il Palagio, along with a selection of other enticing restaurant and bars.
