What are the dates of the 2022 Monza Edition Tour?

Checking into the Como Hotel on Sun Sept 3rd. Checking out of the Canalgrande Hotel in Modena on Thur Sept 14th. I always encourage Tripmates to arrive a few days early because Como is a great place to decompress from the jet lag and ease into the Italian lifestyle. You can take the fast boat up to Bellagio for lunch and stop off in little villages along the way back.

FAQ

Does the Sept 3rd – 14th 2023 Tour include airfare?

No. I tried it once but found that most people have air miles built up that they want to use. People also have very special ideas as to traveling before and after the Tour, so it makes better sense to book your own flights.
What city does the Tour start in and what city does it end in?

The Tour officially starts in Como on Sat and ends in Modena. There is a 5:59PM Mandatory Meeting on the first day of the Tour to be briefed, and to meet everyone.
What are the dates of the 2023 Tour?

Check into the Hotel in Como on Sun Sept 3rd. – Check out of the Hotel Canalgrande in Modena on Thur Sept 14th. Tour participants called “Tripmates” should arrive in Como at the Hotel no later than Sun Sept 3rd. Sun night is included in the price of the Tour. I always encourage Tripmates to arrive a couple days early because Como is a great place to decompress from the jet lag and ease into the Italian lifestyle. You can take the fast boat up to Bellagio for lunch and stop off in little villages along the way back. I have a number of rooms reserved at my rate for this on a first come first serve basis so you can be in the same hotel during your stay in Como. Rates are more or less 180Euros for a double and 150 for a single. Remember this is high season and the Monza F1 weekend so rooms are scarce and expensive.
Will my wife or girlfriend enjoy the tour?

YES! Women have traditionally enjoyed the tour as much as the guys, as there are always plenty to do and see. Typically there are 10 to 12 ladies on each tour. We are happy to give you the names of some ladies that have gone on the tour for you to get their perspective.
What should I bring?

Travel light, 1 roller suitcase and one roller carry on bag. Dress for warm weather. A complete check list will be sent to you prior to departure. The tour includes a logo jacket, hat and name tag.
What day will we be visiting Maranello and Ferrari?

We usually dedicate one full day to Maranello and to all things Ferrari, including meeting for lunch (included) at the famous Montana Ristorante, the Ferrari Galleria museum, Ferrari Shopping Super store, Warm Up and the Maranello Collection . Call me regarding the Ferrari Factory Tour.
What's included in the Tour?

The price of the tour includes 4 and 5 Star Hotels all positioned in the historic center of each city with “first class” breakfast each day (other meals are on your own), Deluxe Bus, for the 11 days, tour jacket, hat and name tag, access to museums, factories and special places we visit. The price includes lunch at Montana in Maranello and the Finish Line Dinner and Roast on the last night. The tour travels to the cities of Como, Milan, Torino and Modena. Pending any unforeseen circumstances we visit historic icons and meet legendary personalities.
Where do I fly into and out of?

Book your flight to fly into and out of Milan (Malpensa Airport). Malpensa is about a 40-minute town car ride to the Lake Como Hotel. I can recommend a Town Car Company for those so inclined. Email me for the town car recommendation. I always take a town car because I am jet lagged out and just want the trip to end. The Tour ends in Modena. I usually arrange a bus to take folks back to Malpensa or a car can be arranged with the hotel.

Plan your return flight NO SOONER than the afternoon of Thur. Sept 14th.
I do not speak Italian, how will I get along?

Most of the Italians we come in contact with speak English. You also learn to communicate with hands and numbers.

Do I need an international driver license?  No.  
Who is the tour guide and what is his experience?

I am pleased to Introduce the famous Enzo Ferrari author Luca Dal Monte. His book has been purchased by Apple and is being made into a 10 part sires. I will take care of all the advance booking, accounting and visit scheduling and Luca will be the official on the ground Tour Guide. He will be there as we visit all the Factories, Designers, Collections and Restoration shops. Seeing people, he is already very familiar with. In 2022 he was well received on both Tours by everyone. He is very capable and knows everyone.
