  • Mugello Moto GP 2014 Accomodation?

    Has anyone got some experience visiting Italy for the Moto GP in mugello?

    so far i have found everyhing in walking distance has sold out, so now im looking at scooter/bike hire for a few days, as there are some places avaliable about 20km from the track.

    has anyone got some recomendations?

    Wow. Could they have planned any earlier?
    I am looking at Jerez for 2014 . . . if anyone has similar information for Jerez Spain it would be greatly appreciated. To prevent any more of a threadjack (apologies) please PM. Thanks.

      I'm also planning to attend the Mugello GP next year - staying in Florence and then either driving (will have a car) or getting a bus to the track.

      Tickets for the GP haven't been released yet have they?

          That's the problem with Mugello it's smack bang in hills in the middle of fucking nowhere. The larger cities in the area (Bologna and Florence) do run either a Bus or Train/Bus Connection to the town right next to the track though - Most of the stations these days have ticket machines in Itaglish.

          I stayed once in Borgo San Lorenzo (largest town in the area) bout 5-6kms each way (ok to walk if your pissed, but shite if your sober or hungover). The other time I was there I stayed at a camp site in San Piero, not walking distance, but every man and his dog and child had a bike of some sort. A Local bus took us to the town next to the track each day.

          Sorry was about 10 years ago so I've little memory of the names of the places I stayed at.

          Edit: If you haven't ridden in Italy before, its a hoot, so stay anywhere and hire a motorbike, it'll be just as memorable or even more so than the GP The area is really hilly so hiring a scooter I won't recommend so much, same with a pushy.

          Other alternates are to check the Treinitalia website, search for the town you are staying in and then see if it has a train close by which heads to either San Piero A Sieve or Borgo San Lorenzo. If you can get to these stations you'll just jump on the bus with the crowds.

            Florence is typical Italian chaos turned up to 11. It is interesting to spend a couple of days especially if you are travelling with family/partner but if you are just looking for a base for the GP then there are probably better options.

            I find Bologna really easy to get in and out of, lots of hotel options and generally easier as a base. I have stayed there a few times either passing through or as base to Imola.

            Public transport is generally excellent but a bike makes life heaps easier to get around in Italy. Bike parking for Moto GP and Superbike rounds is usually excellent. The centre of a lot of cities in Europe are now traffic restricted, so you need a permit for your car but bikes are unrestricted.

            For what it’s worth, I hire bikes from these guys in Milan (ask for Francesco, excellent English, helpful and efficient, didn’t give a crap when a scraped a brand new GS down the side of a car in Barcelona).
