A completely flat stage, before the following two, across the Po Valley, raced mostly on broad and straight roads. Street furniture will be found in urban areas, along with roundabouts, traffic dividers, speed bumps and the like along the entire route. The finish is virtually straight.
The final kilometres are played out on broad and mostly straight roads. Over the last 5 km, the only bend is 2,200 m from the finish. Porphyry stone pavers cover a 450 m stretch, from 1,500 m to the finish almost to the red flag. The home straight is 1,500m long, on 8 m wide asphalt road.
