During the enitre journey, the Ferrari's and the Tour Director’s car will be constantly in touch by mobile radio system. Stop in San Gimignano for coffee at the Relais La Collegiata.

The roads carefully selected by your Tour Director ensure maximum driving pleasure while enjoying the beautiful landscape of Tuscany. The tour continues in the direction of Siena where you will stop for a visit of the town. Siena, an unspoiled mediaeval city, is the location of the famous Palio, a horse race around the city’s shell-shaped Piazza del Campo. Siena’s other historic gems from the Middle Ages include the Town Hall (Palazzo Pubblico) and the Torre dei Mangia (1340), which are similar in height to the Cathedral.
