Great photo outside Ferrari! The gate guys probably thought it was a new model out on test!

I passed throught that gate several times due to my job. you can't go in by car, you can't go in w/o an invitation by a Ferrari's employee. .. I think that it is the same everywhere

We did the Lamborghini museum and factory tour last year. An incredible experience, the tours take place while the assembly lines are running, dodging robotic trolleys and workers, health and safety hasn't reached northern Italy yet.( luckily )

Neither has equality, and so much for a European union, foreigners (us), had to pay €20 to go on the beach at Lerici, and the first two rows of sunbeds reserved for Italians only.

Wow, they've really tarted up the Maranello entrance.

this is the entrance close to the wind tunnel, where the main internal street ends.

the historical entrance (the red one) is still the same in the other side, the Maranello village side.

About Lerici, it is an expensive place for Italians too.

TBH. it is quite normal to pay for the beach and you can go only on the sunbeds that are not reserved. People (any nationality) are used to pay for a sunbed for a week, month and so on, and it is reserved for that period indipendently if you go by the sea or not

2500 miles down to Modena/Turin and back, via Stelvio and other passes.

Couldn't resist a pic outside the gates of Maranello.

They might be doing the same outside Hethel in a few years time!!

Great pics and cheers for posting,  big thumbs up for Pagini letting you park inside  :thumbup:

The Lamborgini factory tour fantastic,  the dancing donkey factory from what i have seen on video footage has a sort of tropical rainforest in the middle of te factory by the alloy casting facility to help with humidity iirc. :)   More things to add to the bucket list lol.
