Italy in a Ferrari
It is the third day of your holiday in Italy. You are looking at the road, as it stretches out before you like a silken ribbon, shimmering invitingly in the mild morning sunlight. The road is flanked by vast green landscapes on both sides, with the occasional smattering of European styled villas. A medieval age church stands imposingly towards the far left with its large bell hanging from tall stone towers, while carefully laid out vineyards present a canvas of yellow and green along the right edge of the road. There is a slight nip in the air, which is blended with the pleasant smell of olives wafting in the groves visible faintly near the horizon.

Absorbing these sights and sounds in this Italian country side, you recline in the driver's seat of a gleaming red Ferrari F430 Spider F1 parked to the side of a road. Your fingers rest on its steering wheel with an eager sense of anticipation as its curvaceous body attracts appreciative glances from the passersby. You are refreshed, having spent the night at the luxurious Villa Le Maschere, one of the most beautiful late Renaissance country homes in Tuscany. The exotic taste of your breakfast - Chianti and Ravioli prepared using the masterful tips of the great Chef Fulvio Pierangelini himself, still lingers in your mouth.

Taking a deep breath, you reach out for the ignition and turn the key with the slightest effort. Like a powerful tiger waiting to pounce, the powerful 4.3 L V8 engine roars to life and then settles down to a purr emanating from beneath the hood bearing the celebrated prancing horse, the symbol of Ferrari.

You glide the F430 onto the road as it obeys you with the grace of a swan. Seconds later, you are cruising down the road, your F430 led by your personal tour director's black Alfa Romeo Brera 3.2. A huge Audi Q7 follows you, forming the third member of what is almost a convoy for your Italian holiday, as it slices through a landscape dotted with meandering pastures, bright vineyards, and medieval cathedrals built from white stones.

Soon, the Alfa Romeo Brera 3.2 leads your Ferrari to more mountainous areas, and the majestic Mount Amiata makes itself visible, sunlight bouncing playfully off its stony face. A few turns later, the convoy glides to a stop before the ultra modern Fonteverde Spa Center, one of the most luxurious spas in Europe. As you admire the aristocratic 17th century property located in Tuscany, your personal tour director introduces you to the staff. A couple of hours later, you feel rejuvenated like never before, courtesy a state-of-the-art thermal therapy session. Back behind the wheel of your F430, you leave the exhilarating spa and venture further.

As the Ferrari picks up speed, its needle flirting with the 150 mph mark, your personal tour director appraises you about the plan for the remaining day over the speakers. You are about to visit a private wine tasting session by Antinori, the internationally recognized master of wine production. It shall be followed by a guided exploration of the walled medieval hill town of San Gimignano, a place which served as an active hub of the Italian Renaissance. The night shall be spent in Siena at the 5 star Grand Hotel Continental, built in the 17th century. And the next morning shall greet you with your new ride, the powerful Ferrari 612 Scaglietti.

Excited by the thought of the experiences lying ahead and enamoured by the experiences lived on this holiday so far, you smile, step on the accelerator of your Ferrari, and cruise further into your magical holiday in Italy.
