Would you like to Drive a Ferrari in Italy?

Our Ferrari self drive experience in Italy is a unique journey created to enable you to fully appreciate the Italian way of life. Each tour is private for you; it is simply the Ferrari, the open road and a friendly tour leader contactable by radio (in a separate car). Accelerate through the steep, winding roads of Tuscany, along the route of the legendary Mille Miglia race for example, and put your driving skills to the ultimate test. Behind the scenes staff take complete care of the Ferraris. Every morning you will wake to find your car, clean and polished, refuelled and fully checked ready to begin another day of exciting driving through further dazzling landscapes. Available self-drive tours range from one-day experiences to eight-day tours in the most sublime driving locations across Italy. These range from the rolling green Tuscan hills to the dramatic Amalfi coast and the beguiling northern lakes.
