Riding between legend, folklore and majestic rocky peaks. Today is the glorious Dolomiti stage at Giro d’Italia: from Moena to Ortisei. A Touch of Italy honors this stage with three new pictures of the riders in action in the Dolomiti.

Today is Dolomiti DayStage 18 of the Giro d’Italia 100. From Moena to Ortisei via the Passo Pordoi, Valparola, Gardena and Pinei, this is possibly the most suggestive and breathtaking stage of the Giro d’Italia. 

Dolomiti, romantic Dolomiti, rocky peaks that raise above green fields and pine forests, remains of a warm coral sea bed millions of years ago. Dolomiti, that turn pink at the sunset as a perfect frame to the glorious pink jersey, leader of the Giro d’Italia. Dolomiti, breathtaking in the summer and exciting in the winter. Miles of hiking trails and vie ferrate through the meadows, forest, all the way to the top of rocky peaks leave room to the largest winter ski resort in the world, as snow covers them in candid white.

In a mix of Sellaronda and World War Tour, the riders will climb up to the Passo Pordoi, down to Arabba, with the Monte Sella on one side and the Queen Marmolada on the other. They will go back up to the Falzarego and Valparola, then back to Alta Badia, home of the Wold Cup Giant Slalom in La Villa. And then again, up the Passo Gardena and down to Val Gardena home of the World Cup Downhill. Up one last time to Passo Pinei to close to chic Ortisei. Today is race time, with top spots along the roads of the Pordoi or Gardena.

But how about tomorrow? If you are still in the area, do not miss the Rifugio Maria or the Rifugio Lagazuoi. Typical South Tyrol dishes (speck, canederli, strudel), top beer or wine and unforgettable breathtaking views: a ONE IN A LIFETIME experience.
