Do you want to discover the unique beauty of the Italian regions around the Giro's stages? Born from a collaboration between Giro d'Italia and komoot, this Collection gives you the chance to venture out on your bike and discover the lands that host the stages of the 105th edition of the Pink Race.
Brutal climbs such as Blockhaus and Mortirolo; the historic passes of San Pellegrino and Pordoi in the Dolomites; and the arrival at the ancient Verona Arena, the Giro d'Italia 2022 promises to be a great spectacle in keeping with its tradition of being one of the toughest and most coveted races in international cycling. But the Giro is not only a challenge between athletes and teams of the highest level: it’s an unmissable opportunity to breathe in the great passion for Italian cycling that pours out onto the roads and to discover the unique variety of landscapes in this wonderful country.
Would you like to ride the roads on which the great champions compete for the Maglia Rosa, but prefer to practice a less extreme form of cycling? In this Collection, we’ve carefully selected 30 routes that further develop the areas passed through by the Giro 2022. These are routes of varying difficulty and length, and you can ride them at your own pace with plenty of time to enjoy a good coffee whenever you feel like it.
Thanks to the huge variety, there’ll be a route near your favourite region or you can organise a cycling holiday that leads you to the sites of the Giro 2022. Italy is so beautiful and diverse that your adventure will soon become an incredible journey to discover the gastronomic, scenic and cultural wonders of the Bel Paese – the beautiful country.
Climb the slopes of Etna with its lava flows, relax on the Neapolitan seafront, conquer the Fedaia pass with the rugged beauty of the Dolomites, race against the clock pedalling through the city of Romeo and Juliet, contemplate the green valleys of the Majella National Park – every Tour is a new adventure.
If, on the other hand, you have incredibly well-trained legs and like tough challenges, you can try your hand at the official stages of the Giro 2022. You can find them in this Collection:
The tour takes you up the slopes of Etna to the Sapienza Refuge, from which guided excursions eventually depart to reach the summit of the volcano. The unique landscapes, shaped by the lava flows, will certainly compensate for the fatigue of the long, albeit rather gentle, climb.
This tour with a limited duration and height difference is designed so that everyone can admire the beauty of the coastal landscape of Capo Peloro and the Strait of Messina on their bikes. As you descend from the Upper Lighthouse, sharpen your view to see the Calabrian coast on the other side of the Strait.
