Details about this tour

After 50 minutes by high speed train you will reach Bologna Centrale train station and you'll be picked up by your guide and driver for this exciting small-group tour that combines culinary deliciousness and fast, luxurious cars. On the drive there, listen to your guide inform the group what is in store for the day, as well as some of the history of food and Ferrari in the region. The first stop is a cheese maker. Learn how Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is made. See how the workers churn the creamy goodness and where they store and age it for up to two and a half years before it's ready to eat. And, of course, sample some of the incredible cheese along with a savoury breakfast. Hop back in the van and head for Modena, the capital of balsamic vinegar. Learn all about this 'black gold' and why and how Modena has perfected making it. Taste 15 and 30 years old balsamic vinegar and some local foods with drops of this precious product. Then head to a prosciutto factory to sample some luscious cured ham. Learn about the long curing process and about the history of the meat in the area. Transition from culinary to cars for the next stop: the Ferrari Museum. Stroll around the museum learning about the history of the posh automobile maker, take a guided tour and then even opt to test drive a Ferrari (at own expense) with a teacher beside you. Finally, conclude the tour with a six-course lunch at a family-run restaurant, complete with wine and water and followed by coffee and a digestive. After lunch, get dropped off in the center of Bologna to take advantage of some free time to discover Piazza Maggiore, with the Neptune Fountain and San Petronio Basilica, the Two Towers, before to find you way back to the station (10 minutes on foot) or directly at the railway station for the return train to Verona.
