The Porsche Travel Club
All of the tours offered by Porsche Travel Club take you to the same place: the driver’s seat of a Porsche. However, you naturally get to choose where you would like to experience the exhilarating feeling of driving a Porsche.
Our programme ranges from one or two day Porsche Short breaks through to Porsche Tours lasting up to a whole week. For people looking for adventure rather than a quiet spot on the beach, we recommend one of our Porsche Adventure Tours for up to eleven days.
In addition to plenty of motoring enjoyment, on our tours we also place great importance on accommodation and catering. You’ll therefore stay at the finest hotels and dine at the best restaurants along your chosen route.
After all, we wish to ensure your complete satisfaction – even away from the wheel.
What links Porsche and Rome? The lasting memories you’ll take home of both.
Rome – the ‘Eternal City’, once the centre of the Roman Empire. A city of art and culture with an incomparable history. In addition to an exclusive driving experience, the Porsche Travel Club offers you an unforgettable day of culture in Rome.
The two day driving itinerary in southern Lazio with its magnificent countryside, historically significant locations and traditional viniculture features a number of highlights as well as plenty of pleasure at the wheel. The main attractions include a visit to the gardens of Villa Barberini in Castel Gandolfo and an enjoyable drive along the Tyrrhenian coast and winding mountain roads further inland.
Furthermore, you’ll be treated to an outstanding day full of cultural highlights in the city of Rome. You’ll visit the papal gardens at the Vatican as well as the Necropolis on the Via Triumphalis, which was excavated just a few years ago.
In the afternoon, you will have some time to explore the historic centre of Rome at your leisure. Alternatively, you can browse the city’s many chic boutiques.
In the evening, another cultural highlight awaits you: a private visit to the Vatican Museums – outside official opening hours.
In a small group limited to just 40 people, you can admire the art treasures of one of the most extensive and important collections in the world. This exclusive guided tour is followed by yet another highlight: a magnificent concert in the Sistine Chapel with its ceiling frescoes painted by Michelangelo.
A gala dinner is then served in the midst of the exhibition – surrounded by masterpieces by world-famous artists such as Michelangelo and Raphael. A fitting conclusion to an eventful day packed full of unique experiences and unforgettable moments.
Exclusive Porsche Tour of Rome – the package includes:
Five days/four nights’ accommodation with breakfast
Three nights at the Gran Meliá Villa Agrippina Hotel
One night at the Grand Hotel Palazzo della Fonte
Dinner on four nights including non-alcoholic drinks and coffee
Lunch on three days including non-alcoholic drinks and coffee

Leave everyday life behind.
For several hours or several days – just the way you like it.
That is Porsche Travel Club’s philosophy. For more than 15 years.
Choose your favorite tour and embark on a journey that will lift you out of the everyday.
Porsche will take you to the limits of the Arctic Circle.
So you can explore yours.
Minus 30 degrees in the snow. In a Porsche? Porsche can warmly recommend it – the winter driving activities from the Porsche Driving Experience.
The Porsche Driving Experience offers you a number of different opportunities to enjoy handling a Porsche in winter conditions. You’ll also have the unique opportunity of learning all about the future of the sportscar: with the new 911 – as part of a special training session at Camp4, Camp4S and Ice-Force.
As the graphic shows, you can complete each level which builds on knowledge from the previous level (Precision, Performance and Master) as part of specially developed winter driving programmes on snow and ice. First-time participants start with the Precision training. They subsequently go on to improve their vehicle control further with the next level up, Performance. Only then are they ready for the Master course. You can complete the individual training levels on ice in the winter or on the track in the summer.
Porsche instructors will show you how to improve your safety – and your driving skills. On snow and ice. Pushing the limits. For unlimited driving pleasure.
This winter at the Porsche Driving Experience, they have a number of challenges for enthusiasts on snow and ice. Camp4S for example.
Once you have mastered their Precision training, you’re ready for this challenge.
The Porsche Driving Experience Center Finland on Lake Pasasjärvi near Ivalo provides the ideal setting for a further improvement of your driving skills.
With 1.5-mm spikes on each tyre, you’ll learn how to control a Porsche on black ice and in some of the most demanding situations.
‘Wedeling’. ‘Schussing’. ‘Snowplough’. We prefer the drift.
Here is what your schedule would look like:
Individual travel to Ivalo airport where you will be greeted by the Porsche team and taken to the hotel by shuttle bus. After checkin, relax over a welcome dinner in preparation for the exhilarating days ahead.
After breakfast and a theoretical driver briefing, it’s time for your first trip to Lake Pasasjärvi. But don’t worry – in temperatures that can frequently drop as low as minus 30 degrees, there’s no chance of you finding yourself on thin ice. Porsche instructors are also on hand at all times to offer you expert guidance and advice. After mastering various sections of the course, stop for lunch on the shores of the lake and, later, enjoy dinner in a cosy restaurant.
Developing your vehicle control on snow and ice requires a considerable amount of practice. That is why you spend as much time as possible at the wheel. But not just in a Porsche.
At the ‘Winter Olympics’ in the evening, you’ll also get to experience the driving dynamics of other vehicles such as snowmobiles and ice karts.
The schedule for the fourth day includes some new training units. And, once again, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to put the skills you have learned thus far into practice. After many hours of driving pleasure, it’s then time to say farewell to the group over dinner.
Individual departure with a range of new skills under your belt – and a wealth of memories to treasure.
The best protection against icy temperatures?
A good covering of snow, of course.
