What's better than exploring Tuscany's historic and picturesque wine country on a three-day tour while staying at an incredible five-star hotel? How about doing so while behind the wheel of your own personal Ferrari. Well, that dream is now a reality thanks to upmarket hotel Il Salviatino.
The five-star 15th-century villa outside Florence has teamed up with Red Travel for the Tuscany Full Throttle package. The three-day experience includes a stay at Il Salviatino's most luxurious accommodations along with a self-driven tour of the gorgeous Tuscan Hills.
Day one begins with the first night's stay in one of Il Salviatino’s Dome View deluxe rooms, offering incredible views of the properties gardens and the rolling Tuscan Hills. Up bright and early the next morning, you'll be served a delicious breakfast before being introduced to a Ferrari expert who'll school you on the finer details of driving one of the Italian manufacturer's iconic vehicles.
Once you're familiar with the basics of driving one of these beasts it's time to pick your car of choice to tour the Chianti region, with five Ferraris available - a 488 Pista, 488 Spider, California T, 458 Speciale and 458 Spider. The day ends with a 50 minute spa treatment for two back at the villa to relax your body after a tough day hurtling around the winding Italian roads.
The action continues on the third day of driving where you will visit Siena and World Heritage site San Gimignano in the morning before stopping for lunch. Then you'll travel the famous Mille Miglia route back to Il Salviatino where you'll be treated to a three-course dinner before check out the following morning.
The Tuscany Full Throttle package starts at €7690 EUR per couple, with a €10,000 EUR deposit required for each Ferrari (€20,000 EUR for the 488 Pista). The package is available now until October 31, book at salviatino.com
