Città dei Motori: the App

The project Rete Nazionale delle Città dei Motori will soon have its own APP for motorcycle enthusiasts and for all potential tourists. The aim is to provide them with an additional valuable tool to easily enjoy - other than the motor events of the Municipalities of the Network - also the vast cultural and tourist heritage offered by Città dei Motori.

Città dei Motori App will allow you to take thematic routes (museums, tracks and circuits, characters, brands and producers) in the network territories, giving you the opportunity to get to know their varied offer (under the points of view of culture, landscapes, food and wine), so that you can extend your stay or continue your trip to other cities of the network. Through mobile technology and geo-localization, tourists will be able to fully experience the territory, either guided by the application or deciding to explore the tourist's contents across the network, watching movies and other content, easily planning the next stops in other cities of the network. The passionate tourist can then create a personalized tour that considers information such as: ticket price of points of interest, opening times, distance, transport services, wi-fi access, and more generally - through simple push notifications - will be able to access the existing tourist opportunities in the area (hospitality, information points, car parks, routes).
