A perfect weekend of motorcycling Italy – on a Ducati! This Ducati Dream Tour – Riding Bologna’s Legendary Roads combines the unforgettable experience of visiting Ducati’s famous Italian motorcycle factory and museum; riding some of Bologna’s best roads! If you’re considering European motorcycle travel this year, this is an ideal get-away combining luxury with an organised weekend of Italian motorcycling.
The tour begins on a Friday with arrival and lunch at the Ducati Factory, before making a guided tour of the famous home and Museum of Ducati motorcycles in Borgo Panigale, Bologna. From there, participants leave their luggage with tour staff, collect their pre-selected Ducati motorcycle and depart on a guided-ride through the Apennines of Emilia Romagna known as “Motor Valley”. Upon arrival at the incredible hotel of “Monte del Re” in Dozza, luggage will already have been delivered, leaving guests to just check-in and relax before dinner.
The beautiful hotel, created in a classic thirteenth century monastery and famous for its regional cuisine, will become an idyllic base for the weekend and point-of-departure for Saturday’s 270 km guided-ride into the mountain roads of the Futa Pass, recommended by the official Ducati test riders themselves. After stopping for lunch in the countryside, even a leisurely ride back to the hotel on the Ducati motorcycles will deliver everyone early enough for a spot of relaxation before dinner in the friendly atmosphere of new Ducati Dream Tour friends.
Then on Sunday you’ll enjoy a 250 km tour from Dozza to Fanano which returns to the Ducati factory mid-afternoon.
As part of the Ducati Travel Experience initiative, the famous Italian brand offers a range of models for the tours from Monster 796 and the new Hypermotard and Hyperstrada; to the Diavel and new Diavel Strada and the Multistrada 1200 S Touring.
This weekender is a downsized tour from a selection of wider Ducati Travel Experience programs offered in other international locations now available in the “Experience – Ducati Travels” section of the official Ducati.com website.
