    No matter if you're a petrol head or not, the Ferrari name rings a bell for almost anyone. The name is synonymous with speed, victory, and the colour red. When we had the chance to make a stopover in Maranello (close to Modena), we went for it straight away. Why? Maranello is home to the famous Ferrari brand and home of the Ferrari Museum. No car geek can say no to an opportunity like that!

    The Ferrari Museum (or Museo Ferrari as the Italians call it) is the new name of the Galleria Ferrari, the Ferrari factory museum dedicated to Ferrari cars, its drivers, and its technical skills and innovations.

    Arriving in Maranello by car, the first thing you see is the Ferrari factory. It's an impressive building with even more impressive security measures. All you can do there is stand in front of the gate and maybe see a (new) Ferrari car drive by on the compound (we were so lucky).

    The Ferrari museum is located 300 metres from the Ferrari factory and is much more welcoming. The staff is friendly, dressed in red racing uniforms (did you expect to see any other colour here?), and they speak English.
