Centurion magazine writes, “Touring Italy by car can be one of Europe’s great pleasures, but do you really want to drive the Via Chiantigiana in a Chevy Spark from Hertz Italia? Instead, you could be cruising in a Ferrari GTC4Lusso thanks to 100 All’ora.”
It continues “The Rome-based outfitter lets you choose from Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Maseratis as well as less testosterone-fueled classics like the Fiat 500.
“We want people to experience Italy’s roads the way they were meant to be experienced—in a great car, preferably one made by an Italian company,” Andrea Benedetti told the magazine.
The trips are great if you find yourself on your own during a weekend layover on a business trip, as part of a vacation, or a memorable company outing. 100 All’ora also offers professional video and photographic services as a souvenir. Below are day trips from either Rome or Milan.
The one-day tour starting and ending at your hotel will give the chance to test drive some of the most exciting Ferraris in beautiful and historic scenery.

The Telegraph notes, “Next door, in a 19th-century building built on three levels, there is a marvellous restaurant named Pagnanelli, its terraces overlooking Lake Albano, which lies in the mouth of a volcanic crater. The traditional cuisine is mainly sourced from the family farm, and the cellars, built into the volcanic cliff face, house thousands of bottles of wine and grappa. The knowledgeable sommeliers will give you a tour of the cellars to choose the wine to drink with your meal.”
After lunch, you will visit the huge wine cellar located under the restaurant where you can review the thousands of precious wine bottles. After a quick stop at Lake Albano, you will continue driving towards Rome.
