This incredible trip combines the beauty of fair Verona with some of Europe’s most dramatic mountain passes, culminating in the famous Maratona dles Dolomites, cycling’s most iconic amateur event.
We’ll explore the countryside around Verona and the rolling hills above Garda alongside Eros Poli, the local boy who went on to win Olympic gold and one of the most famous Tour de France stages of all time. And then, we’ll transfer to the gorgeous Hotel La Perla, deep in the mountains and right at the heart of the Maratona action.
You can look forward to roads steeped in history and some of the sport’s most legendary climbs, from the Passo Pordoi, where Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali fought one of their most famous battles, to the iconic Passo Gardena, which promises to be one of the highlights of the 2017 Giro d’Italia. And because you’re with inGamba, you’ll experience all of this with the kind of equipment and support that normally only professionals can enjoy. There is no better way to get a taste of the pro cycling life.
