Learn about Enzo Ferrari, the founder of the illustrious car company with the visit of the Galleria Ferrari. Browse through the Ferrari store and view the Ferrari private racing track, Fiorano, before savoring the flavor of an authentic Italian lunch at a local restaurant where chances are you may bump into a drivers’ legend: Michael Schumacher.
After lunch, depart for the nearby Hombre ranch where the world’s largest private Maserati Museum is lovingly curated by the Panini family. Enjoy a stroll of the museum’s collection of 23 cars that span Maserati’s celebrated history.

Get a peek at the custom aging rooms used to craft the local specialty, and get a taste of the wonderful results. After you, snack, take in the stunning Italian countryside during a relaxing drive back to Florence.
The factory, museum and test grounds are located in the outskirts of Modena. The museum was designed with lots of red metal, natural light, and open spaces. Entering is done through the gift shop, and then down a few steps to the production car area.
The 1949 Berlinetta 2+2, one of the oldest cars in the museum and one of the few non-red cars in the whole place. There were other productions cars to drool over, but not a huge number. There were a few dozen cars in the museum, but they represented the different eras of Ferrari history.
There were pictures, videos, and models of the Ferrari factory production. One section of the museum, on the upper level, was dedicated to Enzo Ferrari’s life, this included pictures and memorabilia associated with him.
In one section of the museum, a glass cased pictorial wall told the story of the company’s colorful race history with hundreds of pictures and mementos in glass cases. Pictures of the drivers, racecards, clippings, helmets, driving suits and other memorabilia were displayed along one long wall.
Finishing up in the museum lead back to the gift shop and the small shop held many exquisite pieces as you might realize. No bargains here, but some exclusive pieces and designs. It was very hard for me to resist the red leather luggage. If there is anything better than leather luggage, it would have to be RED leather luggage. But a look at the price tag told me that perhaps if I could afford a Ferrari, then I would be able to afford the luggage to go with it.
