Ferrari World

The resort’s second theme park was added in 2017, and includes its own rides, a new hotel, shops, and car racing simulators. Ferrari Land pays homage to Italy, not just through its link with the premium sports car brand, but also through its inspiration in the design of the park - including recreations of Venice’s Piazza San Marco and Rome’s Colosseum.
