We’ll ensure that you experience the action of the Giro first-hand, taking you to many of the stages in Northern Italy to see the pros do battle

We love when the Giro D’Italia comes to our part of Italy…the excitement, the passion, the glory that it fills our neighbourhoods and villages and touches everyone. We relish the spirit  of the Giro, as our world turns pink.  

Sharing our love of the Giro with friends and guests is personal for us.  It is the most authentic Italian cycling experience we have, and it is right in our backyard. There’s no better holiday for the avid cyclist that appreciates the pro peloton and the history and culture of this great race.  Let us show you our Giro. 

We have been taking our guests to the Giro for over 10 years, and with our experience and local knowledge, we’ll ensure that you experience the action of the Giro first-hand, taking you to many of the stages in Northern Italy to see the pros do battle.

With so much Giro 2024 action taking place in Northern Italy, we are fortunate to be able to use our 4-star Garda Bike Hotel as home base. Some days we will ride directly to the stage and other days we have just a short drive by van to the stage, giving us the opportunity to ride in a variety of locations.

Garda Bike Hotel will be your host over the entire trip, so no need to move from hotel to hotel, and after exciting days out on the course, you will have time to relax in our warm and inviting atmosphere

At Garda Bike Hotel, we will ensure that you experience the best of northern Italian life, our local dishes and wine, the scenery and landscapes of our mountains and of course, the beautiful Lake Garda. You will ride the difficult climbs and challenging courses, but you will also enjoy stops in a village for an espresso and later for a gelato. When you get home, you’ll remember the excitement of watching the pros live and up close, but you’ll also have wonderful memories of your own epic Italian rides.
