Canossa Events makes its private fleet of Abarth 595 Cabriolets available, each made unique by Garage Italia craftsmen’s skilled hands.
Otherwise, it will be possible to choose an historic car, always made in Italy: Alfa Romeo Duetto or Fiat 124 Spider.
Those interested will have the opportunity to decide between two participating options: individual tours or small guided tours.
Guided Tours, available on selected weekends, will enable to meet new travel companions to share the passion for Motorsport with. One of our guides will lead the group to discover the Motor Valley and its treasures. The groups will be composed up to 10 “crews” so as to grant excellent service and the highest safety.
Individual tours, available whenever you want by reservation only, will give the opportunity to organize the journey autonomously.
Both the opportunities are designed for couples or two friends, but it will also be possible to participate with children or by yourself.
Every moment of the trip has been conceived to guarantee a pleasant experience for the participants even in these times of Covid-19. Our staff is prepared to welcome the guests with a smiling face, even if covered by face masks, and will provide the necessary personal protective equipment.
The programme of the experience behind the wheel is divided into three days and includes the visit to Lamborghini Museum, Pagani Automobili, Ferrari Museum in Maranello and Enzo Ferrari Museum in Modena. Besides this, there will also be an aperitif, a walk in the city center of Modena and a guided tour of the UNESCO site in Piazza Grande, with its Romanesque cathedral and the Torre Ghirlandina. Guided Tours include also two nights accommodation, two dinners to discover the traditional typical flavors of Modena and a lunch surrounded by Ferrari’s history. All this represents an expertly balanced sequence of active driving moments, discovery, culture and fine food.
Luigi Orlandini, President of Canossa Events, explains the origins of the project: “The objective of the Motor Valley Tours is promoting tourism in Italy and in particular supporting our regional treasures. We conceived the tours for offering to all the lovers of four wheels an interactive and immersive journey to be experienced at first hand. Cars are not only the subjects of these weekends, but today they also represent the safest means of transport for moving quietly.
I also would like to add that all of us working in the field of tourism and events are dealing with an unprecedented crisis, but we do not take the risks to which all the health care workers of our hospitals are exposed. For this reason, we will offer hotel accommodation to all the doctors and nurses of Covid units that would like to participate to our guided tours”.
