Cars, Gelato, Waffles and Mountains

day 15 & 16 – it’s all about cars

After leaving Bologna we headed across to Maranello to check out the Ferrari Museum. All the cars from old to new were beautifully displayed and I learnt a lot about the history of Ferrari in a really interesting way. Plus, Daniel got to drive one, so he left feeling pretty happy 🙂 Continue reading “Cars, Gelato, Waffles and Mountains”
