I'll pick you up on a comfortable fully-fitted minivan. Our first visit will be the Parmesan cheese factory. You will stand side by side with craftsmen as they prepare and work the "king of cheeses". You will be served a parmesan-based savory breakfast and inaugurate the day with the first Pignoletto toast. Salute! Next, we are off to a multi-generation, family-owned artisanal prosciutto production facility. You will visit the different seasonal simulation storage rooms so bring your light jacket or sweater for the “fall” room. The tour concludes with some of the highest quality, freshly sliced tastings you will ever have of this classic. Ever tasted 15, or even 30-year-old barrel-aged balsamic vinegar? We'll visit a century-old balsamic vinegar estate to teach you how to recognize the real "black gold" of Modena you will not find in your grocery store! Then we'll get to the worldwide famous Ferrari Museum in Maranello to live the Prancing Horse dream first-hand. After a day of learning and tasting, we will conclude with an outstanding five-course late afternoon lunch complete with local wines in a picturesque setting where we can share our thoughts. This is “la dolce vita”!!!
Ciao! It's Andrea! I've been a tour guide for over 20 years, and after traveling extensively, and two fantastic children, I've decided to settle down in our homeland: Bologna. Beeing a foodie and a Ferrari fan, I've decided to share these passions with others . This is why I've created an amazing food and Ferrari tour to show you the best of my region all in one day. I've personally selected family-run producers of Parmesan, balsamic vinegar and Prosciutto to offer you the real Italian flavours. With me you'll have privileged access to the Ferrari Museum since I am a licensed guide. I created a team of experienced and knowledgeable co-hosts that deliver the experience I have designed for me in some occasions. I ensure the quality is always equally high!
