How to access the Hospitality Areas
The hospitality areas of the Giro d'Italia can only be accessed with a pass. The pass is personal, nominal, non-transferable and valid for 1 person for the marked day. The accessible areas and the duration of the accreditation are indicated on the pass.
Where can I collect passes?
Passes can be collected:In the Start Meeting Area: at the “Accreditation Point”, until one hour before the start of the race.At the Finish: in the daily Race Headquarters (the address is in the Race Guide, which you can download from giroditalia.it/eng) from 10 am to 1 pm, and from 2 pm to 3:30 pm.
Is it possible to post-mail passes?
Passes cannot be post-mailed.
All persons of at least 3 years of age must wear their pass in order to access the hospitality areas. However, minors must be accompanied by an adult in charge; otherwise, they will be denied access to the hospitality areas. For under 14-year-agers the pass is free.Strollers are allowed in the hospitality areas. Due to the conditions of the ground and to the presence of cables and wirings, however, their circulation could be quite difficult.The Giro d’Italia provides mobile toilets that are not equipped with baby changing facilities.
Persons with disabilities
All Giro D’Italia hospitality areas are equipped to welcome people with reduced mobility (adapted ramps and sanitary facilities). Nevertheless, the Start and Finish sites may be on steep and/or uneven ground, and we apologize in advance for any difficulties you may have. We suggest you inform your contact person and the Organizer in advance, so we can accommodate you better.
It is recommended to wear comfortable clothes and shoes suitable for an itinerant and outdoor event. Please consider the possible bad weather conditions, for example in case of mountain finishes. In the hospitality areas, guests are required to dress in a "sport chic" style. Accessing the hospitality areas with cycling clothes is forbidden.
Getting in and out of Hospitality Areas
You may get in and out of the Hospitality Areas until the race is 10 km from the finish, consistently with any activity carried out on the finish line. After that, all access points along the home straight will be closed until the broom wagon has passed under the finish arch. You will be asked to show your pass each time you access the Hospitality Areas.
In the start and finish zones, reserved parking areas are available for accredited vehicles only. Such areas will be duly signposted, with colours matching those used for the accreditation bands. If you plan to spend the day on the "Race Experience" program, you may leave your vehicle parked for the day, displaying your parking pass behind the windshield. The vehicle must be moved within 11:59 pm on the day of validity of said permit.
If you have an electronic parking pass, it must be printed out on A4 paper. No parking pass will be offered, sold or delivered on site. If you do not have a parking pass, we suggest you park where this is possible, and reach the Start and/or Finish area on foot. The traffic and the congestion generated by the road closures, the magnitude of the event and the large crowds make access complicated for non-accredited vehicles.
What is the accreditation band?
This is the official accreditation for vehicles following the Giro d'Italia. The bands are color-coded to indicate different categories, and must be displayed permanently both on the windshield and on the back of the vehicle, to allow said vehicle to travel following the race.
Circulation inside the race convoy
No vehicles are allowed within the race convoy. Only vehicles displaying a PINK or GREEN accreditation band are allowed to travel between the lead vehicle and the broom wagon.
