Description:

This private daytrip will take you inside factories and museums, to discover the world of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Ducati 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).

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). The price of the tour includes all entrance fees to factories and museums (worth 120 Euro total for each adult).

SUPER CAR TEST DRIVE - If you wish it is possible to book a supercar driving experience. You will drive for 20 kilometers (about 20 minutes) on normal roads while in the passenger seat there will be a pilot from the staff who will give you some useful driving tips. You can choose among several models like: Ferrari F430 Spider, Ferrari California, Lamborghini Gallardo LP570, Ferrari F488 GTB, Lamborghini Huracan and more. You can also choose to add a DVD or USB with the video recording of your performance so you can share with your friends your driving skills! The test-drive and the video are additional options that you may choose from the menu in the upper right box of this page (if you wish to book a test drive for more than one person please contact us). Minimum age requirement for the test drive is 21 year old.

FERRARY FACTORY TOUR - If you are the owner of a Ferrari and would like to visit the factory inside we will be happy to assist you, please email us for information. If you are not the owner of a Ferrari, the visit of the Ferrari factory for the general public can be done only from the outside. This tour from the outside for the general public is managed by the manufacturer. It has a duration of about 40 minutes and is done onboard a minibus. You cannot step-off the minibus and you are not allowed to take photos or videos. You will see the buildings where Ferraris are made (from the outside) and the testing track. If you wish you may add this tour from the options menu.

Please note that on Wednesdays the Ducati Factory and Museum are closed to public. In case you book the tour on this day of the week we will offer you alternative sites to visit or a price reduction. During the month of August the Lamborghini factory, the Ducati factory and the Ducati museum are closed for the summer holiday so they will not be included in the tour. During August the tour will have a special price and schedule. Please contact us for more information.

Camilla was also very good and was very informative on the area around the Motor Valley. Although she was giving the tour at specific sites, she did provide background for the factory tours and answered many questions on Italian customs. We would recommend Camilla and the driver without hesitation!
