For those who plan to drive to our Maranello factory tour on October 11th. 2012, I try to find out if there is "hard core" demand for a nice drive to Maranello ?!
I'm open for any suggestions but as someone has to get the idea started, I would suggest 3 options:
Meeting in Neuschwanstein (Bavaria, Ludwigs castle) driving over Imst, Innsbruck, the Brenner tunnel to Bolzano, Trento, Verona, Modena Maranello. This is a easy 477km 1 day drive.
Meeting in Basel Switzerland, driving to Lucerne and Lugano (sleeping over) the next day from Lugano to Milano, Modena, Maranello. Lugano ( the 1st. sleep over is easily reachable in a 1 day drive from London, Amsterdam etc. The drive from Lugano to Maranello is only 269 km, a half day drive.
Option 3 (the extended version):
Meeting in Neuschwanstein (Bavaria), driving to Vienna (517 km, 1 day easy), driving from Vienna to Maranello (1300km's 1 day). This option would be interesting if 1-2 days can be added to the shorter versions (Option 1+2) as a visit to the opera, theatre or just enjoying a lazy day in beautiful Vienna would be of common interest.
From a perspective of a London or Amsterdam driver version 1+2 would mean 2 days to Maranello and 1-2 days back, version 3 would be a 3-4 days to Maranello and 1-2 days back.
What would you prefer ?
