You will love it. If you have the time take 4 days to get there and use D roads in France down to Grenoble. Then the N85 to Grasse and the Riviera. Travel the Autoroute thru France to Pisa, Italy and onto Florence. Mugello is not far from Florence so you should be able to find good accommodation. Try Moto-Express tours for a weekend package, they are pretty good and look after you. Brill!!!! best GP in Europe.

stuff

I'd say spend an extra day traveling each way and spend less time on of the motorways. I went out via Le Puy en Velay/Ardeche/Gap. Came back via Montgenevre/Briancon.

Florence is a very nice city. Still some reasonably priced hotels going on www.booking.com. The cenre of the city is a maze of old streets with one hell of a one-way system. My advice is pick a hotel on the edge of the triangle which forms the boundary of the old city, 1 side being the river, the other 2 sides the road. Click on this, you'll get the idea.

Getting in/out of the track can be a nightmare. I would go on the bike, getting a bus could take forever. Cant remember there being a train to the circuit.

mugello

went last year and it was awesome (apart from a certain no 46 falling off) - we camped in a park next to the circuit and walked in each day (approx 5 mins). one thing we did struggle with was finding the circuit tho - not very well signposted!

there's no shelter in the grandstand so take lots of suncream (it was sooooo hot!) if you're going in one.
