How to Take a Road Trip From Florence in a Ferrari

The ‘Italy Full Throttle’ experience begins with a full Ferrari briefing and three models to choose from — Ferrari 488 Spider, Ferrari California T and Ferrari 458 Spider.

Affluent clients looking to go the extra mile during their Italy vacation can now do so in a Ferrari of their choice. In partnership with Red Travel, the Salviatino Collection launched the “Italy Full Throttle” experience earlier this year.

Inspired by a blend of art, fashion, architecture, gastronomy and beautiful scenery, the self-drive tour combines lavishness with a unique Gran Turismo experience. Clients begin their three-day Italian tour with an overnight stay at Il Salviatino, a hand-restored 15th-century villa in the rolling hills of Tuscany, overlooking the pulsing city of Florence.

The next morning, a Red Travel tour director and expert Ferrari driver introduces guests to the world of Ferrari, preparing them for the drive of a lifetime through the Tuscan countryside and into the Veneto region. The experience kicks off with a full Ferrari briefing and three models to choose from.

After an adrenaline-filled ride to the romantic, ancient town of Verona, travelers check in to Palazzo Victoria, a centrally located gem that seamlessly blends romantic Italian history with modernity.
