Explore Pisa and its famous landmarks

Inside you can admire the exquisite painted ceiling and many rare statues.

Stop for a stroll and then drive on to Forte dei Marmi, another lovely seaside town in Tuscany. It has fabulous beaches and a long pier known as the Pontile which offers views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the city. Walk around and enjoy the sculptures that stand in the town centre.

After lunch, show off your Ferrari 812 Superfast as you drive along the famous ocean road.
