Enhance your trip

  • The company was relocated from Bologna to Modena and it’s easy to find thanks to the spire that stands over Modena’s skyline. This is where Maserati has built their cars since 1940.
  • It is estimated that originally there were around 180 towers, however, only 20 remain today. The most famous are the Towers of the Asinelli and Garisenda which stand side by side at the Piazza di Porta Ravegnana. These two towershave become a favourite symbol of the city.
  • The Fountain of Neptune is located in the Piazza del Nettuno, next to Piazza Maggiore. Before the fountain was built, an entire edifice was demolished to make space for it. The fountain was completed in 1565.
  • Piazza Maggiore is a central square in Bologna and reflects the layout from the 15th century. The Municipality of Bologna decided to have it built in order to homage the importance of the city and at the same time to gather all the city activities.
  • Guided tasting (English speaking) of vinegars of different ages
  • Quite an experience seeing cars that you don’t usually ‘meet’ on the streets and a factory designed like an Italian Piazza, without the usual production lines and robots.
