    Default Ducati Factor Tour

    Hello,

    Has anyone been? What do you get to see? Is it worth a visit?

    thanks

    Have been twice. Factory tour round the production line and then the museum tour. Well worth it. Nice pizzarra across the road. If you are in bologna for a few days get the local bus out to the Lamborghini factory and museum. Then jump on the train to visit the Ferrari galaria and factory. Best 3 days I've spent on holiday. Even Mrs Chiz enjoyed the 3 days and she hates cars and bikes.

    We spoke to a few guys on the production line and the guy putting an 848 through it's paces on the rolling road. You cannot get into the R&D area for obvious reasons, but it's interesting to see the differences between US and UK makes. It's really relaxed tour. We were by ourselves and the guide. She just went where she thought we would be interested in. The museum is a must. So much history.
