The Museum of Ferrari Engines also gives travelers the chance to see engines that go into Ferrari’s most famous road and race cars.
While the Enzo Ferrari Museum has wonderful car exhibits on display, the highlight of the visit is learning about the man. Car enthusiasts can gain knowledge about the legendary designer and his 90 years of life.
