The winner of Giro d'Italia 2023 will be crowned by the President of the Republic Sergius Mattarella in the Roman evening. In fact, the capital returns to host the final stage of the Corsa Rosa five years after the disastrous last time and does so with a 126 km stage that has all the characteristics of a classic final parade.
The stage will start in the afternoon forwarded from the neighborhood EURwith the runners who will ride long in the first 15 km Via Christopher Columbus until you reach Ostia, where the group will make a U turn to face the same road just traveled in the opposite direction. Having passed through the EUR again, the platoon will continue towards the centre, making its entrance into the final circuit near the Spas Of Caracalla and passing for the first time on the finish line of Via dei Fori Imperiali when there will be 81.6 km to go. From now on, the riders will face six laps of the 13.6 km long circuit: they will pedal along the Lungotevere, where they will pass in front of theAra Pacis, then crossing the Regina Margherita bridge to cross over to the other bank. After circling Castel Sant'Angelo, you will briefly walk along Via della Conciliazione before recrossing the river and heading towards the Circus Maximum, then going around the Baths of Caracalla to enter the last 3000 meters. At the last kilometre, you will pass alongside the Colosseum and a wide curve to the left will lead you onto the final straight with a very slight uphill of 700 metres, the last 400 of which on the cobblestones. At the end of the fourth lap there will be a sprint with bonuses (3", 2", 1"). Other bonuses as always for the first three in the stage (10", 6", 4").
