I’ll give you a choice of places to visit, but you can only go to one. Which would you choose?
- The Enzo Ferrari museum at Modena – dedicated to the life of Enzo Ferrari.
- The Ferrari museum at Maranello – exhibiting the range of Ferrari sports cars.
- The Ducati museum and factory at Modena – devoted to their bikes and heritage.
As a keen motorcyclist, my choice should be obvious, but nothing in life is can be taken for granted. I’ve been to a few Ducati dealerships and whilst it’s not the same, I really wanted to see the cars.
The Ferrari museum in Maranello, is situated on what looks like an industrial estate. I wasn’t able to park the motorhome in the vicinity of the museum, although there was plenty of parking for cars. I was able to find a suitable car park about a mile away and cycled in. Be prepared to be approached by people trying to sell you a Ferrari test ride, although, according to the signage this isn’t allowed.
The ground floor focuses on the sports cars, whilst the top floor traced the racing pedigree. The €15 entrance fee is reasonable, but the museum shop is not cheap. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the museum, and next time I only have two to choose from.
