Just go there! I have had the luck to visit the factory multiple times, but even if I didn't, I would definately have gone to Maranello. The city lives Ferrari! Besides the factory, there is Fiorano (the test track) that can be seen from the outside. opposite the factory there is a garage called 'Toni Auto' which has some interesting Ferraris there. Of course there is the Galleria and there are several places to eat (Montana and Cavallino are the best know ones). There are many shops with memoribilia, books, models and the like if you collect this stuff. Furthermore there is always the possibility (and probability) you can spot many Ferraris in the village.
So in short, convince your wife you will tread here a good dinner in Maranello and explain this is the Mekka of the Ferrari fan. Even if you have to prromise to do the laundry for a year, do not hesitate and do it! You will regret it if you don't, especially when you cross the ocean. For us Europeans it is easier to go there ;-)
