Re: going to italy
All that has been posted before is good advice, but may I also add that if you continue down the road the museum is on, away from the factory gates, you come to an area where you can see the Fiorano track. I was there a couple of years ago and they were testing grand prix cars, God the noise was just beautiful !!
Someone has already mentioned Bologna which is just plain beautiful ( like Florence with less people), I would also recommend Modena which is also lovely, and you can go and see the Maserati factory and maybe find Scaglietti.
Also the mountain roads south of Maranello are fine driving roads and well worth a blast around, and who knows what you might find testing.
Finally betwen Modena and Bologna ( north of the main roads) is Saint Agata where the Lamboghini factory is located, they were rebuilding ( building ?) the museum the last time I was there. Although now they are owned by VAG it has probably been replaced by an Audi garage or something horrible.
