Stage 7 – Castrovillari – Alberobello (Valle d’Itria) 224km – total elevation 700m
Over the first 140km, the route is essentially flat (with just a short descent after the start), mainly on straight and wide roads, and only becomes more elaborate when crossing urban areas. After cresting the Bosco delle Pianelle KOM summit, the final part of the stage is more complicated, as the route passes through several urban areas, with obstacles such as roundabouts, traffic dividers, pedestrian islands, setts paving and speed bumps. The final 40km are undulating, and going slightly up.
