For someone like me that has grown up around Ducati's this is a special place. The museum is almost entirely dedicated to racing bikes, not the average production bike. So you won't see any of the Monster or Multistrada lineage here. The accompanying factory tour is informative and moves at a reasonable pace. It was low season (Feb 2015) when... More

We took the museum and factory tour of the Ducati Factory in January 2015. My husband is. Ducati owner and loved both the museum and the factory. He really appreciated being able to get so close to the actual production lines to see how much care is taken in the construction of these great motorbikes. I even really enjoyed my... More

Had a few hours in Bologna so I organised a trip to the Ducati Museum and factory. I'm into bikes but not a Ducati fanatic - maybe I am now! You need to book in advance which I did several weeks before although some others arrived at the gate and got in when some bookings didn't arrive. First up was... More

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
