Anyone in Italy?

My wife and I travel to Italy often and would like to meet up with any Ducati MS folks there.

Grazie mille,

Not in Italy myself, but ....almost , Athens, Greece here. SO if you make it across to Greece I'd be happy to meet you.

Almost, but not quite. I can see Italy out the window, but it's a 15 minute drive to get there.

Another one here, I lived in Florence from mid teens to mid twenties, my sister still lives there and I travel there regularly both on business and pleasure. That's where I got my love of Ducatis (had my first bike, a Ducati 250 Scrambler there), It has always been my intention to return to live there one day......

I hope you have a good time Moto..

What factories where you thinking of visiting? Are you planning to travel by rentalcar or bus/taxi/train?

If you decide on a rental, i would advice on a co-driver or a GPS system. The Autostrada´s are fast, but cost some $$ to use. The SS- roads are fair, but see lots of truck traffic (at least in the north).

I used my Mio Mitac 269 GPS in Italy and the system was flawless in navigation.

Here are one or two adresses you might try..

Via dell´ Artigianto 35
36060 Molvena (North from Vicenza)
Crossroads: Via Villa – Via Roma (SP70)
Route: Via Ponticello (SPVIII)

Via Arsure 2,
31039 Riese, TV
Crossroads: Via Alcide de Gasperi
Route: Via Castellana (SP6)

Via C. Ducati
Borno Pangiale
Crossroads: Via della Salute
Route: A-14 Exit No.3 Tangenziale Nord Bologna
Route, local: Via Marco Emilio Lepido
Easy to find... not far from Bologna Airport.

The Dainese and Alpinestars adresses are for both factory AND outlet.


2010 Multistrada 1200s - engine mapped by tomtom, Öhlins mechatronics SCU and alot of mods to make up for poor skills

I just moved to Italy. I live near Brescia in a town called Desenzano del Garda. I've been here for about 2 months now and love it. I'd love to meet up with some fellow Ducati owners for ride sometime.
