Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 5.41.37 PMThe Ferrari Museum in Maranello is now offering its visitors an exclusive guided bus tour inside the Fiorano test-track proving grounds and Viale Enzo Ferrari, an avenue which runs through the cluster of new production and other buildings making up the Ferrari “Cittadella”.  A Museum guide will introduce visitors to the various characteristics and features of the circuit where Ferrari has done its road and competition car testing since 1972, and to the Ferrari Factory where the Prancing Horse cars are built. Visitors may not leave the bus, take photographs or video footage during the tour, however.

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 5.38.54 PMIF YOU GO:

Visitors have to book their places on the tours through the Museum website.

You must first purchase online an entrance ticket for the Museum, await confirmation and the arrival of your booking code by email before proceeding with purchasing your place on the shuttle bus tour. We advise you to check availability on the days you wish to have the tour before purchasing your ticket for the Museum.

The Museum visit and tour must take place on the same day. The Museum may be visited at any time during normal opening hours, but there are just two bus tours per day, departing 12.30 and 13.30, from outside the Museum. The schedule may, however, be subject to last-minute changes or cancellations depending on Fiorano or Factory commitments.

Screen Shot 2014-06-02 at 5.38.15 PMNote:  Many people on TripAdvisor give poor reviews of Ferrari factory tour when it is unfortunate that they did not do the oweners’ factory tour (i.e. personally guided around the inside of the closed-to-the-public factory). YOU MUST BE A FERRARI OWNER TO DO THIS TOUR. 

There is no charge for owners and is organized months in advance by your dealership. The factory tour is truly amazing, you’re in a small group (6 people in ours) and refreshments are provided.

Note: Drive Time: From Florence to Maranello is 160 kms and should take you just over an hour and a half.
