If you are looking for the perfect family car, look no further than the Mercedes Benz V-Class, a superb luxury van that drives like a sedan.

A Day-Trip in Rome
The city of Rome is ancient and the heart of it - the old centre - harbours centuries of secrets and stories.
The first must-see sight - and there are many in Rome - is the famous Colosseum. The largest amphitheatre ever built, it was a place of spectacles such as gladiatorial contests, battle reenactments and Roman dramas. Not far from there, the Pantheon stands as it polar opposite. If the former was a place meant for the Roman people, the latter is a place meant for the gods. Once a temple and now a church, this monumental building is one of the best preserved relics of ancient Rome.
For a quick break, head nearby to Caffe Sant'Eustachio, which Romans claim serves the most superior coffee in Rome. What's the secret? The pure water used in the brew is funneled into the city by an aqueduct built in 19 B.C. Water is also the focal point of our next attraction: the Trevi Fountain. This famous waterworks is younger than most of the city’s beloved sights, but no less magnificent. The tradition mandates you should throw a coin into the water for good luck, but it has to be done correctly: using the right hand, throw it over the left shoulder.
If you are hungry, take a short drive with your Ferrari 488 Spider to the La Porta Del Principe, on the the best traditional Italian restaurants in Rome.
I’m sure you will want to take your Ferrari rental to the roads of the Italian countryside for a test drive in the afternoon. Two hours on the Italian roads from Rome is the National Park of Abruzzo. If you wish to take a break from the city buzz and relax among the mountains and breathe fresh air, go here.
For a shorter trip, go to Lake Bracciano, a lake known for being the source of water for Rome, as well as being one of the cleanest lakes in Italy. Fancy a swim?
When you drive back for dinner, Tempio Di Iside offers a great selection of fresh fish in a stunning setting. At night, Rome turns the lights off and the music on. While there are many bars and nightclubs, Shari Vari Playhouse is the spot to party in Rome.
