Drive Ferrari with Crystal

This item appears on page 104 of the November 2008 issue.

You can drive or ride in a Ferrari on an overnight shore excursion in Italy with Crystal Cruises (888/722-0021, or see a travel agent).

After a driving lesson, a convoy of Ferraris follows a lead car from Lazio to Tuscany along the Mille Miglia route. The trip includes stops in Pienza, Florence and Pisa; an overnight at Fonteverde Natural Spa Resort, and limo return to the ship.

The excursion costs $19,500 per couple, with a limit of two per car; if solo, a companion/driver will be provided. This excursion must be prereserved. It is available with most Crystal Serenity Mediterranean cruises from May to October (cruise costs from $3,535 per person, double, for seven days and from $5,265 for 12 days).
