You dont have to like Ducati Motorcycles to visit the Museo. There is a lot to see with some very interesting displays. Make the effort, it is worth it

The history of this famous marque told in motorcycles, desmo engines and racing bikes. A pilgrimage for me, but interesting for others as well. A factory tour gets you up close and personal with the assembly lines and we were lucky enough to see a finished bike on the dyno. If you are into motorcycles, this is a must.

We flew from the other side of the world for this tour, having booked it almost 6 months prior and it was well worth it! Very informative, our guide was terrific and could answer all my motorbike loving partners questions. He was in awe. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute and it was great to see Ducati's love of a fellow... More

Booked my tour over a month prior, I didn't really know what to expect of the factory tour, or the museum for that matter. I was greeted at the gate by Natasha our guide. Group was only small (6 of us). The tour of the factory was amazing, it wasnt a scripted tour and a lot of what you saw... More

Are you a Ducati fan? You need to be one to see the factory and museum. YOU HAVE TO HAVE RESERVATIONS!! Book these in advance. We did not have reservations and spent the day standing around hoping to get in. The tour traverses through the factory, which is actively building bikes. You cannot see the museum without taking the tour.... More

The visit started in the Ducati caffe while the visitors all gathered. The museum is not huge, but has a great collection of winning Ducati motorcycles, and a huge amount of historical detail including contemporary newspaper cuttings, designs, videos etc. If Ducati return to winning ways, they'll need to find more space! Once you've had the very informative guided tour,... More

Great tour! Not too long - nicely done and informative. My husband loved seeing the factory lines at work. From start to dyno phase.

10Euro for a factory visit and then a guided tour through the museum. Great fun for little money. Taxi ride from Bologna central and back cost more than the tour. The give you headsets, so you can hear the guide, no shouting. The factory tour is short, but fun to see the bikes being made.

This review is for both the museum and the factory tour. The factory tour for me was the highlight. To get to walk around and see/hear new bikes and motors being assembled was an incredible experience. Everyone knows there is a lot of passion that goes into making Ducati motorcycles but until you make the pilgrimage, you do t fully... More

High crime area. Don't leave anything in your car. Leave the doors unlocked unless you want broken windows. We drove to the Ducati museum from the Lamborghini museum. While parking we were approached by two individuals who had just returned from the museum to find both of their cars broken into. Evidently Ducati does not care enough about their fans/customers...
