Giro d’Italia Has Begun & You Can See the World’s Top Cyclists in Orvieto or Fiuggi on May11-13!

Giro d’Italia is the world’s second biggest cycling stage race (only Tour de France is considered a better bicycle competition): three weeks of stories, competition, scenery, nature and, at times, even controversy. The pink race, as pink is the colour of the jersey given to the day’s stage and overall winner, this year will just skirt Rome, therefore if you want to experience the 94th edition of this exciting sport event you’ve got to go to Orvieto on May 11/12 or to Fiuggi Terme on May 12/13 since the sixth stage of the Giro d’Italia will go from the worldwide famous Umbrian city to the thermal town of southern Lazio: 195 kilometers of muscles and passion.

The beautiful city of Orvieto has organized many interesting events for bycicle lovers on May 11 and 12. One of them is a 3-stage mini tour. There is a pink wine tasting, dedicated to the official colour of the Giro d’Italia, at the Palazzo del Gusto in via Ripa Serancia I, 16 from 10:30 to 12:30 and from 3:30pm to 5:30pm both days. The oil mill Bartolomei, in corso Cavour 97, will let visitors savour their oil and try a bycicle simulator at its cyciling point from 10am to 7pm on both May 11 and 12. While the third stage is the pink and rose menu proposed by the restaurant Saltapicchio in piazza XXIX Marzo 8a for May 11’s dinner and May 12’s lunch.

Orvieto can be easily reached by train from Rome. It only takes an hour and 15 minutes on average and there is a train every hour. The cyclists should arrive at 5:15pm on May 11 and will leave at 12pm on May 12.

For other sport events in Umbria check out this post.

With regards to Fiuggi Terme, we are afraid that it is more difficult to get there and there is no information about any event organized for the occasion. The train fare is cheaper (60-minute trip on average), but after getting off at Anagni station you need to get on a bus for a 40-minute ride to reach Fiuggi Terme.
