Mugello, Italian MotoGP 30th May to 2nd June 2014
Tuscany, famed for its beautiful countryside and sleepy hilltop towns, wakes up one weekend in June to host the maddest race of the motorsport season. Known the world over as Mugello, this race is famous for its thrilling no holds barred racing. Italian riders, cheered on by massed banks of fans, on a mission to win it or bin it. The Italian motogp is not to be missed.
The MotoExpress motogp weekend package treats you to the very best of Tuscan luxury. Our 4 Star Hotel, a renovated historic 16th century mill, stands in the ancient hill town of Certaldo. which is situated half way between Pisa airport and the Mugello circuit. The package includes welcome drinks party, coach transfers to circuit and weekend grandstand tickets.
Certaldo is located in the south of Florence province, on the border with the province of Siena. Like many other Tuscan towns, Certaldo is divided between its medieval walled town on a hill and the residential town below. In the lower town is the main square Piazza Boccaccio and your 4 star hotel.
The charming medieval upper town is reached on foot or by cablecar from the station in the main piazza built almost entirely of brick, it's well preserved despite some damage during the Second World War. A terraced garden and a walkway overlooking the town walls provide a splendid view stretching from the hills of the Val d'Elsa to San Gimignano.
Certaldo has a rail station which connects the town with Florence and Siena making the town an excellent base for a Tuscan holiday.
The story of our Certaldo hotel dates back to the 16th century when it was a mill used to grind wheat. The mill which at the time belonged to the Florentine Cavalcanti family, was seized with other property by Cosimo I De’ Medici after he rose to power in 1537.
Around 1570 the property was transferred to the Noble Order of the “Cavalieri di Santo Stefano” of Pisa. It was even then a building of considerable importance provided as it was with as many as five millstones.
During the restoration of the mill and the construction of the Hotel Certaldo, several historical findings came to light which are now exhibited at a museum specially devoted to the age-old “Mulino di Certaldo” and which illustrate its operation.
Today the building has become a beautiful four-star hotel, carefully restructured to maintain the tradition of its glorious past intact thus bringing an important piece of Certaldo history back to life.
Designed in the 70's "the Mugello" is one of the most scenic, modern and safe racing facilities in the world. The track runs over 5km through the forests and green areas. The elevated areas along the track permit the spectators to take part fully in the race.

What you've said
Hi John and Linda,
Just wanted to thank you both for another well organised trip. We really enjoyed it. The hotel was excellent and the food / drink at the welcome party and celebration dinner were delicious.
It is lovely to let someone else do all the organising even if we relaxed a bit too much and almost forgot to take our tickets!!
We are planning to go to the Circuit of the Americas Motogp next year if it doesn't clash with our club racing dates. Can you pencil us in please?
Enjoy the rest of the season - we wish we could do another one but have to settle for one a year!
Mark and Lynn
