An area of Italy near Bologna is the birthplace of both Ferrari and Lamborghini sports cars, as well as the home of other high-end car and motorcycle makers like Pagani, Ducati and Maserati.
The region Emilia-Romagna is also the home of tortellini, Bolognese sauce and Parmesan cheese, but that wasn't the purpose of this visit, which was all about cars - fast, shiny and expensive cars.
On a recent trip to Italy, my son and I decided to take a tour of some of these facilities as a way to take a break from the churches and art, which I loved, but he only tolerated. I tried to research the logistics of visiting a couple of these factories and museums from home before we left, but found the idea of driving the unfamiliar Italian roads somewhat overwhelming. Thankfully, I came across the Motorstars Tours' website (motorstars.org), which offers day trips to a variety of these sites, with pickup in Bologna.
