Guided motorcycle tour package: Emilia-Romagna and the Motor Valley, 8 days

6 days on the go to discover the cuisine and hospitality of the Italian legendary vacation realm of Romagna among beaches, sea, nature and art, and the Motor Valley in Emilia.

This will be a motorcycling tour with a thousand faces, as is Emilia-Romagna, a land of motors, art and culture, devoted to hospitality and genuine food.

We shall travel the roads that have been the playground of the greatest champions, for the majority of them stem from this very land, among the colors of the Apennine mountains, the sea, and the Unesco sites of the Po Delta, Ravenna, Ferrara, Bologna, Modena, and Urbino.

We will have the opportunity to enrich the motorcycling spirit with a visit to the Ducati and Bimota factories, we will pass through Valentino Rossi’s realm Tavullia and the museum dedicated to Marco Simoncelli (SIC58). We will visit the Ferrari, Lamborghini and Ducati museums, and at the same time we will discover the food and wine excellences of Emilia-Romagna with a visit to a famous balsamic vinegar factory in Modena and the productions plants of the legendary Parmigiano cheese. We will walk in the historical footsteps of the Malatesta family, the Este family, Leonardo da Vinci in Cesenatico, Raphael in Urbino, and Dante in Ravenna and Gradara.

But as motorcyclists strolling through the motor valley, it is anyway the motorcycling spirit and roads that will take the lead while Unesco sites, art and culture will be the subject of in-depth or quicker visits  The latter ones will be presented and feasible after our arrival at the hotel, and/or for those who wish to delve deeper we can organize a  private extension at the end of the motorcycle tour of Romagna and the Motor Valley.
