Gran Fondo Della Vernaccia 2024

The Gran Fondo Della Vernaccia is one of Italy’s best cycling races as it combines the beauty of San Gimignano (a UNESCO world heritage site) together with the splendid hills of Tuscany. The professional organization and the friendly and relaxing atmosphere of the Gran Fondo Della Vernaccia make this event in once in a lifetime experience! You’ll be immersed in the strong emotions of the competition but you’ll also feel joyful! This 5-star cycling holiday trip showcases Tuscan scenery and traditional cuisine using local products. The competition itself is one of the most anticipated in the country and there is an average of 1,500 participants each year. The course is a part of different competitions including the UNESCO Cycling Tour and the Giro del Granducato di Toscana.

You can choose between three different courses. The Gran Fondo is 165 km long and has an altitude of 2250m high, The Medio Fondo is 111 km long and has an altitude of 1550m high. Would you rather cycle a shorter ride than you can cycle the Corto ride? This ride is 70 km long and has an altitude of 1100m. The competitive tracks are slightly shorter and sweeter than the previous edition. The symbolic climb will again be the one that goes through Canada, Gaggiano, and Pestello and leads to Castellina in Chianti.

Experience the beauty of San Gimignano & Tuscany on two wheels!
