Hardcore fans of Ducati who might happen to be in the Borgo Panigale area should pay a visit to the Ducati Museum. It is a must for those of you who are are red-blooded Ducatistas. However, due to the COVID-19 health and safety protocols, plus restrictions, a trip to the Italian factory would not have been possible until today.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen and all Ducatistas, the Ducati Factory in Borgo Panigale is once again open to the public.
The company announced that Ducati Factory tours will once again resume starting October 11, 2021. Visitors and tourers will be taken for a spin around the plant. You’ll find yourself in the presence of Italian craftsmen working hard to bring customers some of the most exciting bikes in the industry. Gaze in awe at the production lines and observe what kind of hard work it entails to put a Ducati together. Whether it be the bike that the factory is so named after, the Ducati Panigale, to the newest Monster in the lineup, it all starts there in that factory.
Of course, for us in the Philippines, to go on a trip like this, you need to book a flight to Italy. While you’re at it, and if your flight is already confirmed, you may want to also book your tour online. Ducati allows guests on its factory floor every week, on Mondays and Fridays online. There are three morning slots, and three afternoon slots available for booking.
In the interest of safety, Ducati will be sticking close to its health and safety protocols. That means that you need to secure a valid EU Digital COVID Certificate, otherwise known as a Green Pass. Children under the age of 12 who cannot take a vaccine will have to provide a valid medical exemption certificate.
