About The Tour

This is the official Italian Car Guy Tour founded by Francis G. (Frank) Mandarano in 1998.

The Tour kicks off on the beautiful shores of Lake Como and runs for ten or eleven days. The Tour visits the great styling centers including Italdesign, Pininfarina, Zagato and Bertone. We also visit world–class restoration shops and major collections.

The Tour visits legendary companies such as Maserati, The Maserati Collection, Lamborghini, Borrani, Pagani, Schedoni and the Alfa Romeo Collection. We will spend one complete day in Maranello visiting all that is Ferrari: including the Ferrari Galleria, the first official Ferrari Store, Warm up, Formula 1 Shopping and lunch at the famous Cavallino Ristorante.

More About The Tour:

May and Sept. are perhaps the most beautiful months to be in Italy; the sidewalk cafes are bustling, the flowers are in full bloom, and the number of tourists is at a lower level.

As mentioned above the Tour begins on the beautiful shores of Lake Como and end in Modena, the Automotive and Gastronomic capital of the world.

Come early and enjoy Lake Como. Take the fast boat to Bellagio for lunch or the slow boat for a leisurely tour of the lake, getting off to explore the little villages and coffee bars. Over the last 12 years, the Tour has evolved and improved including new and better positioned Hotels and the very popular addition of a luxury bus to transport us in style and comfort. For additional details and pricing information, please feel free to call or email the Tour leader.
