ROUTES FINALISED & HOTELS BOOKED
Thank you, thank you & again thank you to everyone who contributed to this thread, we finalised our route & all hotels were booked by last night. We removed a few destinations & added in a few replacements thanks to you guys!
Our tour includes visits to the following 5 European Countries & over 5,000 smiles!
Obviously, on an open forum I won't be too specific, so this'll give you a flavour of what you helped us to schedule.
Pau - held the 1st race to be called a Gran Prix in 1901, be rude not to visit the area!
Carcassone - Unesco World Heritage Walled City
Aix-en-Provence & area
Côte d'Azur & Provence
Monte Carlo (of course) Paul start your engine!
As many Passes as I can drive including; Stelvio, Silvretta, Resio, Umbrail (highest Swiss Pass)
, Ofen, Fuella, San Bernardo & retracing the Top Gear Best Driving Road in Europe, Davos to Stelvio Pass and heading to Italian Lakes. Here's the link of that road in Top Gear's Episode http://youtu.be/lUF-N8BsBmU
Italian Lakes - Garda & Como
Maranello - (Factory Visit already booked & Ferrari are between races, so hoping the cars & guys are in the F1 areas as a few years ago, around same time, I met Alonso & Massa there and a few of us enjoyed a meal with Alonso etal at Montana Restaurante)
Forte Dei Marmi
Alicante - beautiful Old Town full of Traditional Spanish Tapas Bars.
Cordoba - reputedly stunning!
Madrid - Spanish capital.
Girona - old world Spanish Charm near Barcelona.
Teruel - traditional Spanish old town which leads a sinewy route over Pyranees into France.
Costa del Sol - Marbella, Puerto Banus & Ronda.
Shaped up to be a great way to celebrate my wife's 50th, thanks for your input guys & whilst Im sure by the end we might very well be craving our own food, bed & swimming pool, it'll be a trip by Ferrari we'll hopefully always remember for all the best of reasons. Hoping to meet up with some of you on our travels. Grazie un Milione di Amici
Yesterday's history, tomorrow's a mystery, today's a gift.....enjoy every minute!
