Bologna and Ducati
03.22.2011 - 03.22.2011
Had a great time today visiting the Ducati factory in Bologna. It was very cool to see how they build the bikes. This is also the headquarters of the Ducati Corse but that area you can't see during the tour. A few blocks down the road is the Ducati outlet but only the clothes are on sale Interesting side note, the newest Ducati MotoGP bikes are actually more orange than red. Apparently this makes them show up better on HD TV's.
The tour only lasted a couple of hours so we had some time to visit Bologna. Bologna is not really a tourist city but we really enjoyed it. We had a great dinner about a block from our hotel at Al Sangiovese. We stayed at the Hotel Porta San Mamolo and was really happy with the room .The breakfast was just ok but everyone was very nice and we'd stay there again.
