When compiling a list of great travel destinations for gearheads, no list should ever be considered complete unless it has Modena, Italy on it. MaseratiFerrari and, the most recent addition, Pagani all call the greater Modena area home. Plus, Lamborghini and Ducati are just a short drive down the SS9 away in Bologna and vicinity.

Of course, supercar and motorcycle companies aren’t the only reason car and bike geeks should consider holidaying in the central Emilia-Romagna region; there’s also the Righini Collection, housed at a beautiful old castle. It traces its beginnings to the years before and during World War II, when the castle’s then-owner started snapping up old LanciasFiatsAlfa RomeosBugattis and others that would have otherwise been melted down to build Mussolini’s war machines and stored them in the compound’s former horse stables. Since then, more recent machines from FerrariLanciaLamborghini and others have joined this magnifico metallic menagerie. Yeah, this place beats the snot out of any theme park…
