Guests can customise their trip and change the lake destination, car model, duration of the drive and boat tour and request an additional trip to Lake Maggiore.

The Lake Como Luxury Vintage Experience is available until 30 September 2017 and starts from €5,100 (about A$7,400) per room per night. The basic package includes suite accommodation for a minimum of two nights at the Mandarin Oriental, Milan, one-way airport transfer, daily breakfast at Mandarin Bar & Bistro, a 90-minute self-drive in a Ferrari, a personalised road trip itinerary and assistant providing valet, car wash, refuelling, and technical services, three-hour boat tour with refreshments, and a 10 per cent discount on treatments at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Milan.

Weather to go

For a relatively small country, the weather differs significantly between northern and southern Italy. The north of Italy is flanked by the Alps and the Apennines, generating a harsh climate with brutally cold winters and hot, humid, summers.  The middle part of the country has a mild climate with little change seen between winters and summers, while the south of Italy and the islands winters are hardly noticeable.  Due to these differences the best time to visit depends on what region you are visiting, but the high seasons are May through early July and September & October.
