It is well worth taking time to check out the museum. It is very well done with bikes, video clips etc. For a biker something not to be missed.

Easy to get to by taxi or bus. Tour involves small groups. The tour was orderly and organized, our guide was perky and knowledgeable. You start with a museum tour which includes ALL Ducati race bikes since the beginning. Then you tour the modern factory where you learn that it is really an assembly plant. I enjoyed seeing models not... More

My husband is a big Ducati fan so this was a must do for him when we visited Italy. We were able to combine with a factory tour which made for a great morning. The staff are fantastic and friendly and are happy to answer the millions of questions that are thrown at them with a smile. The museum became... More

Visited here while on a two day trip to Bologna and have to say they have put on a great display. Staff are helpful and display is excellent. Well worth a visit. Try and visit during the week and then you can combine it with a factory tour. Unfortunately I visited during the weekend when the factory is closed. Great... More

I have been to the factory on two occasions with my sons and with friends. The only difference is the guide who took us around as there is so much history and bikes that probably once is not enough. One guide was very talkative and friendly the other a little quiet. One knew a lot of history of the exhibits.... More

We prebooked the tour on the internet and had a tour in english. The tour group was small around 5 of us, We got to see practically all the stages of building a bike but not the superbikes as these are top secret. Afterwards we had a look around the museum The tour is interesting even for non bikers like... More

You have to book in advance via website or phone. We booked the Thursday before we went on the Monday. It was a well organised tour with a passionate guide, who knew lots about ducati bikes. The production lines were in action and it was interesting to be talked through their non robotic systems. We arrived by bus no 13... More

Ducati owners club hosts the event , and aside from the usual bikes, babes and beer :) (thought that sounded good) the ducati shop is open all weekend, and, ducati provided a complete range... More

Went to this yesterday. In true Italian style Thursday wasa holiday, so the factory too Friday off too so I only got to the the museum. It was really good, the tour could probably use more than 5 mins at the end free time to look around, but most things are covered anyway. Easy to get an 87 bus from... More

It's really all been said before . . total tour lasted just under 2 hours (about equally split between the museum and the facotry tour). Professionally presented and structured. Factory tour was my main reason for going and I wasn't disappointed. You get to see a very good sequence - from machining of main components, through engine assembly, to bike... More
