The Tour de France is one of the most prestigious and famous cycling competitions in the world, held every year in the summer. This year it will have a historic start in Italy, with the Grand Departure taking place on 29 June and covering the route from Florence to Rimini. This stage will also cross the Savio Valley, an area stretching from the Apennines to the Adriatic coast.

In the Savio Valley, cyclists will face challenging and evocative stretches such as the Passo del Carnaio, the Lago di Quarto area and the Colle del Barbotto, in the municipalities of Bagno di Romagna, Sarsina and Mercato Saraceno, known for their natural and historical beauty.

On the occasion of this fantastic event, many related events will take place in the Savio Valley.
