The first stop on this day long tour includes a stop at the iconic Ferrari’s brand museum in Maranello, Italy, where you will not only see the 2,500 square meter museum, but also be just a few hundred meters from the factory where the cars are manufactured and the headquarters where the top Ferrari executives guide the iconic company into the future.
