Drive Italy in a Ferrari
If you're looking for the ultimate vacation and have the cash to spend, look no further than Red Travel. The stuff-that-dreams-are-made-of tour operator based in Turin specializes in putting together vacation packages that put you behind the wheel of a Ferrari to drive along the Italian countryside, with a variety of options to suit your taste.
Itineraries range from one day to eight, hitting such locations as Rome, Florence, Maranello, Sicily, Venice and Lake Como. You can opt for more countryside or more metropolitan destinations and the packages are completely flexible according to your specifications, even including trips outside Italy to London, Barcelona, Monte Carlo... the open road's the limit. Your own personal concierge will even follow (or forge ahead) by GPS with your bags.
Red Travel's fleet isn't made up of older machinery, either. Their garage is stocked with F430s (coupe and roadster), the brand-new 599 GTB Fiorano and the four-seat 612 Scaglietti. It's by no means a cheap way to travel, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a more memorable one. A four-day trip for two in a Ferrari from Rome to Siena and back runs ??4300 each (approximately $5,700), plus a deposit on the car of ??15,000 which you get back when you return the car intact.
