In between, the 3,572km route will include many of the race’s iconic mountain climbs and visit all but four of the 21 Italian regions. As per tradition, the race visits the south first, with several stages for the sprinters, before heading north to the Alps and the then east to Dolomites, and then finishing in the shadow of the spectacular Milan Duomo in the heart of the city.

Special mention: Stage 16

Arguably the queen stage of the race, it climbs the Stelvio TWICE πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ starting and finishing in Bormio. Weather permitting, it will be the highest climb of the race at 2,758m, with riders descending the famous hairpins down to Prati allo Stelvio, then head into Switzerland to climb back up the Stelvio via the Umbrail Pass before the fast descent to Bormio.
