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.

TERRAIN: HILLY
The terrain is challenging, with steep climbs, stunning views, followed by long descents. See the itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options. Our Pro Race Tour Italy 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.
NON-RIDING ACTIVITIES:
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. As an alternative, call a Trek Travel Trip Consultant at 866.464.8735 for trip suggestions where more non-rider activities are available, such as:
  • Tuscany Luxury
  • Dolomites Multisport
  • Piedmont

Before and After Your Trip

before

Before: 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:

after

After: Milan, Italy

A lot can be said and written about Milan. A town of ancient origins, founded by the Celts and conquered by the Romans, it saw its splendor increase during the Renaissance when the Visconti family first, and then the Sforza, ruled the city. During this period, the magnificent gothic Duomo was built, and artists like Leonardo da Vinci and Bramante came to work in the city, leaving great masterpieces like the “Cenacolo di Leonardo.” During the Austrian imperial dynasty of the Hapsburgs, the world-renowned Scala Theatre was created and instantly became the fulcrum of the artistic life of the town. Milan is also an international capital of fashion and design, with a very lively cultural scene. Major theaters and the hundreds of art galleries and events cause visitors to think that Milan never sleeps. We recommend the following accommodations for your post-trip hotel:
