TDF Grand Depart Italy 2024 Ride & Watch

The race for yellow will start on 29th June in the stunning city of Florence. Italy is known for its stunning landscapes, world-famous cuisine, and cycling roads that host a Grand Tour and two monuments of their own. The Giro d’Italia, Milan San Remo, and Il Lombardia are some of the biggest races on the calendar. It’s no wonder the tour has decided to start in Italy!

The peloton will leave Florence, taking a route that leads to the coastal city of Rimini, situated on the Adriatic coast. Stage 2 leaves Cesenatico, heading back across the country to Bologna, where the peloton will do laps of a city center circuit. From Bologna, the Tour will head to Turin, where the Alps appear in the northwest of the city.
