  • Ferrari fa!

    Galleria Ferrari costs 12 euro. We spent 35 minutes and got a refund. It is interesting but only if you are there locally anyway. Do not come too far to see this. The road directions are wrong on the web and the road signs are few. Where we stayed in a little tuscan town there were 6 Ferraris in a Motor shop you could look at. There are Lamborghini...

Much...

    Ferrari Shop: Ferrari Shop

    by sue_stone Written Nov 9, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located just down the road from Galleria Ferrari is the Ferrari Shop. Even if you have no intention of buying any Ferrari merchandise I recommend a browse here, it is guaranteed to give you a laugh at some of the things for sale.

    The shop sells the usual things you would expect, such as hats & clothing all emblazed with the Ferrari logo. And there are Ferrari mugs, key rings, decks of cards, toys etc.

    What to buy: Do you have a young child - wouldn't they look special in their very own set of Ferrari leathers?! And how about a mini Ferrari to drive around in?

    My favourite item on sale was Ferrari Barbie, complete with Ferrari leather knee high boots and her own luggage. My only regret is that I didn't buy one.

    Open every day from 10am to 7pm

    What to pay: Not for the budget shopper
