DAILY ITINERARY
  • Day 1: May 27th-Arrival Day
    We'll meet you at Milano/Bergamo airport and transport you to your hotel in Ponte di Legno, where we’ll be staying for the first night. We'll help you unpack and build your bike, hand out the team kit, and make final preparations before tomorrow's ride. After discussing the week's program, we’ll enjoy a hearty Italian dinner in your hotel, overlooking the area’s peaceful mountains at sunset.

  • Day 2: May 28th-Stage 16 - Ponte di Legno Circuit 
    113km| Mountains
    What a way to kick off the Giro experience week with the Queen Stage! This is one of the most incredible cycling routes of the Alps in Europe - a climb up the two legends of the Giro: Passo Gavia (this year's Cima Coppi, as the highest climb of the Giro), and the iconic Mortirolo, one of the best-known climbs in the world. After completing this great feat, we will take you to Brixen, where we will have a spectacular dinner to unwind from the day’s ride.

  •  Day 3: May 29th-Stage 17 - Brixen - Anterselva Antholz 
    65km | Hilly
    Today’s ride may be a short in distance, but we'll be climbing much of the route with a slight positive slope, riding through the majestic lands of the regions of Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige. As the route travels through an extremely beautiful landscape, we'll take our time to enjoy the stunning scenery. The last ascent up the Anteselva will be full of fans applauding and supporting us as we reach our final goal ... the finish line.

  •  Day 4: May 30th-Stage 18 - Cortina d´Ampezzo - Belluno
    62km | Descending
    We'll start with a relaxing ride from the famous and glamorous town of Cortina d'Ampezzo, and follow the race route for 45km along an easy, descending course. After two days of high mountains, a relaxed ride with amazing views will be a welcomed change. We'll then ride to Belluno, a beautiful medieval city, where we will arrive on our bikes at our lovely hotel. Later, we will have a delicious dinner and enjoy wandering the old streets in the center of Belluno. 

  • Day 5: May 31st-Stage 19 - Belluno to San Martino di Castrozza
    79km | Mountains
    Beginning at our hotel in Belluno, we will ride a flat course until connecting with the official race route of the Giro. Our aim is to cycle the final 74kms of the stage, which includes one small climb before our San Martino di Castrozza ascent (1,478m). Once on top, we'll be sure to watch the pros as they fight for the pink jersey ... the crowds will be huge, and the atmosphere will be electric. This southern area of the Dolomites is beautiful, and once again we'll take our time to enjoy the scenery and atmosphere.

  • Day 6: June 1st-Stage 20 - Predazzo to Croce d´Aune
    72km | Mountains
    Today, we face one of the toughest and most important stages of the Giro: the final mountain stage prior to the final time trial in Verona.  It's a massive day with 4 big climbs. We'll ride the last 72km of the race route, ascending Passo Rolle (1,980m) and then complete the final climb up Croce d'Aune Monte Avena (1,225m). We'll cross the finish line, take pictures on the podium, and have a chance to watch the race finish, which is guaranteed to be epic!

  • Day 7: June 2nd-Stage 21 - Verona
    15.6km / Hilly (Individual Time Trial)
    Today is the Grand Finale, the time trial which will determine the winner and final placings. After a relaxed breakfast at our lovely hotel, we will ride to the start-line and cycle together through the streets of Verona, entering the beautiful and world-famous Verona Arena. Once we cross the finish line, we'll celebrate our achievements ... congratulations, you have cycled a full week of the Giro d'Italia! You simply cannot get any closer to the real action than this. We'll watch the race finish once again and cheer on the pros as they complete a huge goal ... to compete and fight for the pink over three awesome weeks. Our celebratory dinner this evening will be one to remember!
