Planning a trip to Italy is an absolute dream for car lovers! From classic Ferraris to outrageous Paganis, some of the world’s coolest cars originate in Italy. 


Start your trip in Rome, the Eternal City.

Admire the contrast of your modern vehicle, set alongside ancient monuments. From the Colosseum to the Pantheon, the Vatican to the Trevi Fountain, check out the must-see iconic attractions of the city, while sampling some of the world’s most delicious food!

Next, get into your luxury car and travel for about two and a half hours to beautiful Siena. Feel like you’ve traveled back to the 17C in this magnificent city, known for its colourful buildings, Gothic architecture, and wealth of art.

Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre is an absolute must for visitors to Italy! These five fishing villages are linked by a hiking trail. You may recognize them from postcards. These picturesque towns are quintessential coastal Italy. Enjoy the breathtaking views from the coastal road from the comfort of your luxury car, but make sure to stop and explore some of these beautiful villages.

Maranello, the Mecca of Ferrari lovers! This is at the top of any car lover’s list while planning a trip to Italy.

We know it will be hard to say goodbye to Maranello, but don’t fret – the next stop is like heaven on earth. Home to the stunning Lake Como, surrounded by the Alps, Bellagio is simply beautiful. If nature doesn’t scream “luxury” to you, bear with us – George and Amal Clooney live in a gorgeous villa on Lake Como!

Put your car’s abilities to the test with a trip up to Bormio. Drive up the winding roads of the Stelvio Pass into the mountains, taking in the beautiful Italian scenery and breathing in the fresh mountain air. A great place for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer, enjoy luxury resorts in this beautiful mountaintop town.
