Como is a great place to decompress and ease into the Italian scene but what better way to supercharge your Italian Car Guy experience than to go to the Monza F1 race.
From your cozy hotel in Como you will take the train directly to the Monza stop and transfer via bus or taxi to the track. It’s a very civilized 35 minute ride. The trains run every 30 minutes.
The price of the Tour includes great grandstand seats. The tickets are good for three days if you are really into the racing. Besides F1 cars they race Porsches and other GT cars.
Sunday is the big race and if Ferrari wins Italy goes into mass hysteria with horns honking and noise makers blasting. It is quite a thing to watch.
Off To Milano.
Monday morning our bus arrives and at 8:57AM sharp we depart Lake Como and head to Milano. Once there, our first of four stops will include the amazing Zagato Centro Stile Design Center, then on to Touring Design Center, Borrani Wire Wheels Factory and the Alfa Romeo “Blue Team” Collection.
Off to Turin.
Then it is off to Turin and 3 nights at the beautiful 5 star Principe di Piemonte Hotel in the upscale center of Turin where the marble and cherry wood will engulf you to the point where you won’t want to leave.
September is one of the most beautiful months to be in Italy; the sidewalk cafes are bustling, the olives and grapes bursting with flavor, the flowers are in full bloom, and the number of tourists are at a lower level.
The Tour is limited to 26 seats. So don't delay. The last 4 years have sold out and this year will sell out as well. Half of the seats are already spoken for. Reserve Now!
Price includes, Hotels, Breakfast, Deluxe bus, Jacket, Hat and name badge, all visits and Tour Guide. My Bio at

Have an extra $4.6M to spend - then I have a car for you!
Celebrating 50 years in business in the automotive industry is no small feat. We’ve all seen them come and go. Yet, Lamborghini lasts and in great style.
Witness the new Lamborghini Veneno. She’s a 740 horsepower 6.5 liter V12 monster, with a seven-speed transmission, a top speed of 220 mph, and a 0-62 time in less than three seconds. However, is you are spending near $5M for a car, I don’t think that you are interested in these specs. Undoubtedly you are more interested in exclusivity and bragging rights. Consider that a given.
I’m struck by it’s angular design and wonder if it will endure (think Cadillac XLR). However, the Gallardo has been a great seller despite it’s similar styling. I’m reminded of automotive origami. So many folds.
