Italy Motorcycle Tour: World Ducati Week and Dolomites, 9 days

7 full days on the go, touring on your motorcycle through Alps and Dolomites, the WDW Ducati fans’ party and all news from Ducati

A dream for Ducatisti all around the world. A spectacular motorcycle tour through the Alps, starting from Lake Como, passing through the mythical Stelvio Pass and then continuing in the splendid scenery of the Dolomites through its most exciting and legendary passes, such as the Sella, the Falzarego, the Giau… all the way to Lake Garda. Further down, finally, the unmissable visit of the Ducati museum in Borgo Panigale and it’s already time to hit the track in Misano to get into the swing of things for World Ducati Week and celebrate, together with Ducati fans from all over the world, this iconic Italian brand.

An unmissable motorcycle holiday for every “Ducatista” who wants to experience the Ducati spirit and philosophy firsthand! There will be 2 days of celebration on the Marco Simoncelli World Circuit in Misano with all the appointments of the international World Ducati Week event, where you can meet Ducati riders, try new models and admire vintage and modified motorcycles. You can enjoy all the fun of the Adriatic Riviera, and take small tours of the area amid the roar of thousands of Ducati motorcycles.

Visit Tavullia and the Valentino Rossi fan club, as well as the museum dedicated to Marco Simoncelli are, in our opinion, mandatory stops on this trip to the land of Italy’s most famous motorcycle manufacturers and racers. To crown this week of roaring engines with a note of poetry, a fascinating evening/night in Florence and some spectacular Apennine passes are ours to enjoy on the way back to Milan of this fantastic motorcycle tour.
