Le Bellezze del Giro d'Italia

The beauties of Giro d'Italia:

We also take this opportunity to mention "La Carovana", the publicity caravan that proceeds the riders on the course. It became part of the Giro for the first time in 1933. Now, it's also become a rolling party. Lots of fun!

The start of the 2013 Giro d'Italia will be in Naples on May 4 and finish in Brescia on May 26 having covered a distance of 3,405.3 km. It will leave Italy only once with a stage in France, stage 15, for the Col du Galibier, one of the classic climbs of the Tour de France.
