The immensity of luxury to be found in Italy is as colourful and varied as the palette of any one of the country's great renaissance artists. Possessing flavour of every character, there are numerous ways to experience a luxury drive throughout the country that stencils a leather bound Prada boot. In the summer, surrender yourself to the soft summer rays that shine down upon Italy’s coastal towns, in autumn bask in the golden hues that colour the picturesque countryside of Tuscany, by winter head north towards the Dolomite mountains to spray silver snowflakes in a sensational skiing holiday and finally by spring, there’s no time better to let your soul sing, as you race through the Italian hinterland to arrive at Milan, a city of unparalleled elegance.
In the ultimate combination of picturesque scenery, a dash of retail therapy, sensational food and getting to it all, in the high performance La Ferrari rental, is there any way to further perfect this great Italian weekend escape? Well, our local Italian travel experts advise us that there actually is, in a tour of the Ferrari Museum. Located in the city of Maranello, there are two semi-professional simulators that allow you to experience driving a Ferrari Formula 1 single-seater on the Monza track. Take a guided tour of the marque’s production line and the Fiorano test track. Work up the charm and ask nicely, they might let you take your LaFerrari on a test drive. Giving you the chance to live the dream.
In the city of Milan, luxury is a kaleidoscope that is experienced in many different colours, aromas, tastes and styles. Hire the highly covetous Lamborghini Superveloce, designed with the sportiest DNA, it is constructed with a V12 aspirated engine and an aerodynamic build that makes it stand out of the crowd even in the high fashion districts of Milan. Head out from your luxury hotel for a fabulous bout of retail therapy, critical destinations for top tier fashion include Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Excelsior Milano and La Rinascente. Even if you don’t have trees growing money back at home, these are wonderful location to just soak in the ambience.
Beauty is in the eyes of every beholder when they’re cruising along the wonderful shorelines of Italy’s north eastern coast. Starting from the Ligurian coast, take a drive to chase an endless horizon in the Maserati GranCabrio Sport. Within the stunning confines of this elegant convertible see the towns of Rapallo, Santa Margherita Ligure and the jet-set-favourite, Portofino. These villages, colourful and charming, are each nestled into the precipice edge of the mountain rock, offering breathtaking views of the Ligurian seas. In the shadows of the Mediterranean sun setting over the hills, drive into Cinque Terre where you can discover the world’s most dramatic coastal scenery.
Savour the taste as much as you can savour the moment, for Italians have crafted the art of fine food as much as they have a good time. From your luxury villa in the renaissance city of Florence, take a day off from museums and galleries to hit the road racing in the powerful and exotic Jaguar F-type rental. Designed with pure luxury in mind, the F-type delivers a satisfyingly smooth and dynamic drive within the confines of its hand crafted luxury interior. As you travel through lavender fields, olive groves and vineyards, let yourself be pulled under the spell of this region’s aromatic charm. Known for their award winning wines and high quality food, promise yourself an indulgence or two. Tuscan dishes are always beautifully presented with the immaculate attention to detail that goes into their preparation. Try the acquacotta soup, melt-in-your-mouth gnocchi and home-made pastas, the classic bistecca alla fiorentina, sliced wild boar marinated in juniper berries or the Rivolto del Cassero, a crepe filled with pecorino cheese and unsmoked bacon. All best enjoyed with a deep red aromatic glass of Brunello di Montalcino or the Nobile di Montepulciano.
