Strade Bianche and Granfondo Strade Bianche
Stay at the Hotel ai Tufi and take part in the "Classica del Nord più a Sud d'Europa" race, whether you're a die-hard fan or a cyclist who will participate in the Granfondo!
Nicknamed "Europe's Southernmost Northern Classic" it's an extremely well-known road cycling event, which begins in Siena and ends in the picturesque Piazza del Campo. It is held every year in March in our region and has since 2017 been included to the UCI World Tour, the most significant calendar of international cycling.
The nickname was chosen because its route combines the toughest and most treacherous features of two other major spring classics: the long and tiring uneven sections, similar to the cobblestones of Paris-Roubaix, and the numerous very hard "walls" with "impossible" slopes reminiscent of those of the Tour of Flanders, making it a truly spectacular, challenging and unique race.
In addition to the men's professional race, the same weekend also sees the eponymous race dedicated to women professionals and the "Granfondo Strade Bianche," on a similar route, dedicated to amateurs.
In short, every year in March a great weekend for fans and cyclists: whether as a fan or as a protagonist on a bike, stay at the Hotel ai Tufi to participate in the Strade Bianche, contact us for all the offers!
