We hope you will join us on what continues to be one of our most popular motorsports experiences, the Italian Extravaganza. This whirlwind tour takes guests of Grand Prix Tours to Northern Italy and the city of Modena. Roughly an hour and a half flight from Amsterdam International Airport to the Milan Malpensa International Airport, this trip is intended for guests joining us before the Italian Grand Prix.
Guests are met at the Milan Malpensa Airport on Monday morning.. From there our journey begins and we waste no time while we are in the area. We visit a super car factory in route to our chosen hotel accommodations in Modena. Also, on the evening of our first night in Italy all guests are invited to wonderful, multi-course, gourmet dinner where you can get to know your fellow car enthusiasts.
Day-2 and Day-3 of this Italian Extravaganza are jam packed with sights to be seen and experiences to be had. Starting, roughly at 9 am each morning guests are guided to many different destinations each day. While as mentioned, there are many super car and motor vehicle related destinations on our agenda we do also explore a few of the other world-famous products from the area including the Hombre Farm where you can see a world class production of Parmesan cheese.
On Day-4 we depart from Modena headed to Lake Como and along the way we stop at the Alfa Romeo Museum. Once we reach Como, where accommodations for the Italian Grand Prix have been made, guests will have the option of continuing to the open house pit walk at Monza or staying in Como to relax and explore the city. Guests choosing to join us at the track will be shuttled to and from Monza arriving back in Como later that evening.
Again, this is one of our most popular trips and early reservations are recommended as there is limited availability. We also do aim to give priority to guests joining us on the Italian Grand Prix trip afterwards.
