An epic, but most-rewarding ride. A bucket-list climb featured in many Giro d’Italia’s. This iconic climb is literally breath-taking. Warm up on Day 1 with the gentle, but constant, 3% gradient of the St Leonhard pass, where your reward is 36 miles of descent into your overnight stop in Silandro. Day 2 is the real challenge; it’s all about the Stelvio Pass – gain some serious altitude up to 2,757m and be rewarded with some spectacular views, not to mention the sense of achievement. With the hard work out of the way, enjoy a few more days cycling, either to glamorous Lake Garda, or continue to Verona and Venice, or go the other way and head towards Lake Como and Milan.
