Aprica is located in the heart of the Alps, between Valtellina and Valcamonica. It is an ideal mountain destination for families, with a multitude of nature activities in both summer and winter. In summer, the must-do activities are hiking and cycling. For road cycling enthusiasts, Aprica is one of the unmissable Alpine passes (often a protagonist of the Giro d'Italia) along with the Mortirolo and the Passo di S. Cristina. Mountain biking enthusiasts can enjoy the trails that wind through the Parco delle Orobie Valtellinesi. In addition, there is golf, sport fishing, archery, tennis, horseback riding and much more. In winter, skiing is the protagonist in Aprica with more than 50 km of slopes: from the most demanding to children's slopes.

Overlooking an enchanting gulf at the foot of Mount San Bartolomeo, on the Brescia side of Lake Garda, Salò is the first municipality of the Riviera dei Limoni. Framed by the gentle slopes of the Morainic amphitheater, it enjoys a Mediterranean microclimate.

Already known in Roman times, Salò has always played a crucial role in the history of Lake Garda and Italy.

Traces of its rich past are still evident today, and a stroll through the historic center between Piazza Carmine, the 'Fossa' and the lakeshore reveals ancient manor houses and elegant 17th century palaces that bear witness to the city's historical chapters of great artistic and cultural importance.
Walking through the narrow streets and small squares, there are many fine stores, restaurants, bars, inns and hotels available to tourists.

During the summer season there are a series of events with classical music and jazz performed live, the flower and plant exhibition, high-level sporting events and many other initiatives but, above all, the traditional International Violin Festival Gasparo da Salò, which reaches its 64th edition and is one of the oldest and most famous summer festivals in Italy.

Route of the stage

Although this is not the queen stage of the Giro, it is not far from being so. This stage will test the oil of many riders and being the first of the last week, fatigue is starting to show in many riders.

This stage has 3 first-category mountain prizes, the first at 59.3 kilometers, the second at 130.2 kilometers and the last at 196.2 kilometers.

We will also have 2 intermediate sprints, the first at 103.8 kilometers and the second at 172.5 kilometers.

This is the only mountain stage of more than 200 kilometers and will have a total of 5200 meters of elevation gain.
