A daytrip from Bologna to visit Ferrari, Lamborghini and Ducati or Pagani. Includes factory visits and car museums. A must-do for all motor enthusiasts
This private daytrip will take you inside factories and museums, to discover the world of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Ducati (or Pagani) in what is now known as the Italian Motor Valley.
The tour will start with a private driver pick-up at your hotel in Bologna (we can arrange this tour also from Florence, Venice, Milan and other locations, please contact us for details). Our itinerary will begin with the visit to the Ducati factory and museum: the story of the Ducati dream began in Bologna in 1926 when Antonio Cavalieri Ducati and his three sons, founded a small but successful factory that produced vacuum tubes that during time achieved the world champion title and became a symbol of excellence and speed on two wheels.
The journey continues in the small town of Sant’ Agata Bolognese, near Bologna, where Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963 founded the factory Automobili Ferruccio Lamborghini. He wanted to produce a grand touring car to compete with Enzo Ferrari’s sport-cars. The company's first models were released in the mid-1960s and were noted for their refinement, power and comfort. You will have the chance to visit the museum with the most successful models of Lamborghini and go inside the factory to see the production line of the last model: the Gallardo LP 560-4.
Then there will be time for a lunch stop in a typical restaurant to enjoy the delicious food of this region (price not included).
After lunch you will reach Maranello, near Modena where you will visit the Ferrari Museum. Here you will learn about the history of the most successful racing team in the history of Formula 1, originally founded by Enzo Ferrari in 1928 and that later become the most revered icon in the world of sport-cars. At the end of the day your private driver will take you back to your hotel or train station in Bologna (a different drop-off may be scheduled, email us for details).
If you prefer focusing on sport cars, it is possible to include in the tour the Pagani factory and museum instead of Ducati. The visit will allow you inside the factory where these impressive luxurious custom models are made. Founded in 1991 by Horacio Pagani, it is currently world known for the production of Huayra and Zonda that rank among the fastest and more expensive cars on the market. You will have a chance to visit the production facility and the museum displaying the history and models of the maker. If you wish to see Pagani please make the selection from the options menu (extra cost of 30 Euro per person).
This is a private tour so you will not be part of a group, you will have private transportation, the driver and guide will be entirely dedicated to you. Please note that the visits inside factories will be done in small groups managed by the factory owner. All visits inside factories are subject to availability (in case a factory cannot be seen inside a partial or full refund will be given).
