The road that climbs from Levico Terme up to Vetriolo has been, time and time again, the challenging terrain for champions that competed in the Giro d’Italia. On this climb, American Andrew Hampsten in 1988 consolidated his lead in the Giro, winning the individual time trial. He was the first non-European cyclist to win the Giro.

Destination

Vetriolo

Turn-by-turn directions

A sports tale that is a witness to the severity of a climb that does not give you a moment to catch your breath. You’ll need to have trained hard, because the first kilometres are the only ones that are relatively easy. With the first hairpin turn, the road begins to climb and then doesn’t stop until the finish. The slopes are smooth, around 7-8%, with peaks above 10%.

To climbing cyclists the Valsugana appears surrounded by mountains that rise suddenly and that show many signs of World War I. On the sides, a vegetation rich in wildlife. The water coming down is full of substances stolen from the mountain, minerals that have written the history of mining in this place. Its arsenic, iron-rich waters have sparked a spa tradition that continues to this day. In Vetriolo you will still notice the glories of the past, signs of the Habsburg nobility that would come to relax on the mountains over Levico Terme, risen to the status of city. In Vetriolo the strain ends with satisfaction and the bicycle can stop. From here you can admire the view of a sky painted by colourful kites and hang-gliders that take off at the side of the last steep slope.
