DAY 6

Ferarri Museum
On the way to Venice, we made a stop at the foot of the Apennine Mountains in Modena to check out the  (Ferrari Museum). The entire town of Modena is dedicated to the brand, and the Ferarri colors of red, yellow and black are everywhere. An auto museum isn’t something I would normally pick out if I were creating an itinerary, but the visit was just long enough to get a peek at hardcore flamboyant swank.

And it was interesting—the museum emphasizes the relationship Ferarri has with Hollywood, for example, which was fun. The entry fee and a specialized museum tour guide are included in the  tour price, and the tour guide in particular gave perspective into the drama, science and history that is Ferarri. Other than that, if you want to try out the it will cost you €25 and the items for sale in the souvenir shop are pricey.

Tip: You can only tour the Ferrari manufacturing plant if you actually own a Ferrari. All others are welcome to tour the museum.

Approaching Venice by boat

Venice
This was my fifth trip to Venice, but the Floating City is a city that is forever enchanting. Our tour brought us by boat to the city at night. Pure magic. The lights bounced off the water as our boat taxi wound its way through the ancient canals. Most of the mansions lining our way had curtains pulled back, allowing us a peek into the chandeliered existence of frescoed walls and rich tapestries of what was once a flourishing social scene for the wealthy.  couldn’t have scripted a better introduction of this eye-candied city. I don’t think words can do it justice, you just have to go to understand the opulence and beauty of this completely unique setting.

We stayed in the “Beverly Hills” area off of St. Mark’s square. The streets around our lavish hotel, , house the top designer stores which makes for spectacular window shopping. That said, the ever-narrow passageways throughout Venice are all great opportunities to get lost and discover your own, less-pricey gems.

Gondolas in Venice

Venice is flooded daily as the tide comes in, though it doesn’t disrupt the daily life or even the tourists. There are elevated walkways and many choose to purchase the colorful boat covers that are sold throughout the city.
