The second day of this thrilling excursion for automobile buffs begins with a side trip to Maranello and to the heart of the Ferrari legend. At the conclusion of your visit, treat yourself to a delicious lunch in this mythic land. Restaurants, pubs, and other eateries offer typical local culinary specialties that are still prepared according to tradition. After lunch, it’s time to head to San Cesario and the Pagani Automobile Factory.
Let’s move now to the Province of Bologna for the last leg of our itinerary. Just twenty minutes from San Cesario is the headquarters of another firm that has made automobile history! Can you guess which one? Here’s a clue: think of the Diablo, the Huracán, and the Aventador.
Obviously, those names can only mean Lamborghini, the producer of luxury sports supercars in Sant'Agata Bolognese. If you then really want to fully immerse yourself in the history of Lamborghini, you should also visit the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum in Funo di Argelato, a private collection owned by the Lamborghini family. In Bologna area we also recommend a stop at the Ducati Museum and Factory!
