When you schedule your Italian cycling vacation with YCI during the month of May, you'll have a great opportunity to watch the Giro d'Italia live as it goes through the Veneto. In 2012, three stages of the Giro will be held nearby, so we will have an amazing first-hand view of everything PRO: the racers, the bikes, and the routes. We're looking forward to the Stages listed below. Click the Red link for more Stage detail.
There's nothing quite like seeing a professional bike race like the Tour of Italy up close and personal, so we encourage you to plan your bike tour in Italy around this year's stages. See our complete 2011 Giro d'Italia photo gallery.
In addition to taking you to the start and finish of nearby stages, YCI often have access to pit areas that are off-limits to the general public. Our connections to the local Italian cycling scene really pay off here; you'll get to check out the race a bit closer to the inside than you ever thought possible. Here's our fearless leader Bill hanging out with Sig. Mario "Il Re Leone" Cipollini.
YCI guests enjoy their time in Italy no matter what the season, but attending the Giro d'Italia makes a cycling vacation even more enjoyable. You can ride some of the same routes as the pros, and even ones that are tougher, during your stay at the bike camp. See our complete 2010 Giro d'Italia photo gallery.
