Tuscany | Nove Colle Granfondo | Giro d’Italia

The ultimate Italian, Tuscany, Nove Colle Granfondo and Giro d’Italia experience.

Mid-late May we experience Italian cycling at its best, we explore Tuscany, its beautiful landscapes and wonderful arts and culture. Our time in Tuscany serves as a lovely warm-up to attend and participate in the oldest cycling sportif in the world, the Nove Colle granfondo (9 Cols/Hills), each guest can choose from a range of distances and amount of climbing to suit their needs.

Each year, the Nove Colle granfondo attracts passionate cycling people from all over the world, participants ride on the roads made famous by the legendary local Marco Patani. The event is more than just a granfondo, it’s a huge festival of cycling, it celebrates everything great about Italy and its passionate cycling culture.

We stay in the heart Emilia Romagna, central to the Nove Colle granfondo. The Lonely Planet guide named “Emilia-Romagna” as the best place to see in Europe, it’s one of the most developed artisan regions in all Europe, with the third-highest GDP per capita in Italy.

Emilia-Romagna the region, is also a centre for world-renown Italian – artigianally foods, and automobile production, it’s home to automotive companies such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Pagani, De Tomaso and Ducati as well as having coastal resort popular with the residents of Milan, the Milanese.
