The 350-odd Euro trip to the factory is indeed for owners, but it includes hotel stay for a night and I think lunch at Cavallino and diner at Montana as well as a trip to the Galleria museum. Someone told me the factory-only tour without those (organised through your local dealer) is 160 euro.I'm sure that someone on here said that a tour of the factory was approx 350 euros (and you had to own or have owned a Ferrari)
+1. Tours can also be organized by the Official Factory recognized Owners Clubs.Since the fiasco in 2007 between Ferrrai and McLaren you must to tour the factory :
a) own a Ferrari
b) have your dealer make a reservation for you a minumum of 1 month before your arrival date
c) have your VIN with you for verification at the front gate.
They no longer want anyone in their factory they do not know.
This was explained to me by my contact at F of SF who is a direct Ferrari employee.
If someone is charging for a tour they are doing so on their own. Ferrari does not charge, and you will not get in unless you own a Ferrari.
Great time. We were planning this Sept again but we now have a family reunion planned in Prague in May, 2010. So, it will be England, Belgium, Prague, Italy, France, and then England again for about 3 weeks.
If you are coming over to Europe next year, give us plenty of warning and we'll try to organise a FL welcoming committee for you :thumbsup:
G, See the window with the 122 stuck on it behind you at the gates, thats the room I was in :thumbsup:Contact Maranello. Send your VIN and proof of ownership (title or registration) and I am certain they will make accommodations for you.
