Our Giro d’Italia tour provides the perfect mix of “ride more – transfer less”, with challenging rides in the Alps, Dolomites, lake Como. You’ll have your fill of riding, plus we’ll see different aspects of the Giro d’Italia race stages, including stage starts, midpoints, feed stations, hilltops, stage finishes, mixed with a cultural and culinary Italian experience.
There’s something beautiful about riding a bike in Italy, it’s a country practically born and raised on two wheels, the terrain is almost purpose-built for cyclists who love panoramic climbs, sweeping views, lakeside roads, it’s any wonder Italy is regarded as cycling’s birthplace.
Each of our Grand Tour Itinerary’s provides a unique experience as the race route changes dramatically each year. At our 2023 Giro d’Italia tour you can count on riding many of the legendary Italian rides and routes including:
The Stelvio Pass, where you can opt for a double ascent of the Stelvio and climb both sides if your legs are feeling good, we also ride the beautiful Mortirollo climb while we are in the area.
From our Lake Como base, we’ll ride to the stunning lakeside village of Bellagio, the Colle del Madonna Ghisallo with its beautiful chapel of the patron saint of cycling, the nearby Wall of Surmano and soak up the surrounds of Lake Como.
Our Giro d’Italia tour is led by our experienced team who’ve been hosting tours to Italy for many years, we know how to get the best out of your riding, Giro d’Italia race experience, all in a safe, supported – team like environment.
May is a beautiful time to visit and ride in Italy, we’ll provide a fantastic Italian emersion experience, show you the best smaller roads, charming villages, stay in chic Italian hotels, eat wonderful regional Italian produce and sample the best of the Italian dolce Vita “Sweet Life”.
We look forward to showing you around our favourite places, intersecting the Giro d’Italia race stages and watching the final stage of the race. We’re sure you’ll love Italy and the Giro d’Italia as much as we do.
Ciao Pat, Grace and The Ride International Team.
