Guest on the podium at the Giro d'Italia
I had a fantastic trip. Exceeded my expectations. I thought this would be a once in a lifetime thing and now I'm sure I will do it again. The race viewing perks of having hotel rooms for changing to street clothes, food, and warm, dry viewing areas were a 6 on a 5 point scale. That alone is a giant differentiator. The bike was fantastic. And the guides had it absolutely nailed-I didn't have to tweak a single thing all week.

Then hit the open road to refresh yourself after your travels and test your legs on Passo Pinei (featured on tomorrow's stage) before arriving at our first hotel, where you can unwind and settle in. Take some time for yourself, and we'll gather for an evening glass of wine to discuss the week ahead and savor the local mountain cuisine.

Our Giro d'Italia pro race bike tour in the Italian Alps is best suited for our Type 4 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 3 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van.
This destination is best suited to guests who want to cycle every day. Because of the terrain and/or remoteness of the hotels and riding routes, there are few, if any, non-riding options available. If a non-rider wants to accompany a rider guest on this trip, they would need to spend many hours in the van and/or at the hotels on the trip. Due to this, we strongly discourage non-riders from this destination.

Planning For Your Trip

Packing and Weather

Weather in the mountains of Italy in May is always unpredictable. It can be beautiful and sunny but be prepared for any kind of weather, including snow and icy conditions. Temperatures can range from 30 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 21 degrees Celsius), and we recommend to pack your warmers, winter and spring gloves, rain jacket, wind breaker, and booties. Being prepared for the weather can make a challenging ride much more enjoyable! Packing List

Before and After Your Trip


Before: Verona, Italy

A town rich in history and culture, Verona is a gem of northern Italy. Celebrated by Shakespeare, who made it famous as the romantic setting for Romeo and Juliet, Verona is a splendid, ancient corner of the Veneto region, nestled between the river Adige and Lake Garda, and intimately linked to their waters. You’ll find plenty of attractions to keep you occupied in one of Italy’s most beautiful cities. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:


After: Venice, Italy

Whether you’ve never been to Venice or have been there 20 times, there’s always something new to discover. Indeed, even the most seasoned visitors get lost in the city’s labyrinthine network of islands, bridges, pedestrian alleys, and canals. And therein lies the beauty of the destination: afternoons spent wandering from palace to piazza, exploring the small art museums, shopping the stalls that line the streets, and encountering a fresh side of Venice, a fascinating amalgamation of influences—Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Italian—every time you round a corner. The UNESCO World Heritage site comprises the city of Venice and its lagoon situated in the Veneto Region of northeast Italy. Founded in the fifth century and spread over 118 small islands, Venice became a major maritime power in the 10th century. The whole city is an extraordinary architectural masterpiece in which even the smallest building contains works by some of the world’s greatest artists. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre and post-trip hotel:
