The route is undemanding, and winds its way on a wide roadway along the ss. 18 trunk road, with just a few tunnels along the course. The long yet mild climb leading from Scalea to the -10 km mark is the only trickier part of the route. Final kilometres:
from 10 to 5 km before the finish, the road is wide and well surfaced, with 3 tunnels along the way. A few hundred metres after the end of the tunnel, the route leaves the ss. 18 and passes through the centre of Tortora Marina, first, and Praia a Mare, thereafter. The route continues along wide avenues, with just two bends leading into the home straight (1,900 m, on 7.5-m wide asphalt road). Download here the Giro 101 Safety and Security Plan.
