Social Distancing From Home
As many people in the glove are heading into the second round of lockdowns, it leaves us asking ourselves “ok… what the heck am I supposed to do now?”. If you’re antsy and need something to do in the next following weeks of stay-at-home orders, or perhaps you’re essential and want something to do in your downtime, Ducati will sell you a ticket to visit their Ducati Museum Online Journey through their guided online tour.
I covered the grand unveiling of these virtual tours when it took place last October, but Ducati has added a new exhibit titled “Anatomy of Speed”. This segment of the tour will take you on a deep-dive into Ducati’s racing heritage as well as the importance of aerodynamics to the Italian brand. This tour will take you around 45 minutes, and has lots of new information and exhibits that were not previously seen on the initial tours.
The guided tour will set you back approximately $12 USD, and they typically happen at 11am EST on Thursdays as well as 3am on Sundays for English speaking visitors. If you fancy some Italian lingo, however, you can see the tour at the same time of 11am on both Thursday and Sunday. It’s important to keep in mind that this is indeed a guided tour with a real tour guide to take you through the exhibition, so you’re not just paying for an interactive web page.
The online museum is available on all platforms (smartphone or computer) and will be running throughout 2021.
