Giro d'Italia 2023 to end in Rome

Rome to host final stage of Giro d'Italia for first time since 2018.

The final stage of the 106th edition of the Giro d'Italia, the cycling world's second-biggest annual stage race after the Tour de France, will conclude in Rome on 28 May 2023.

Cyclists participating in the race - which will cover 3,485 km in 21 stages spread out over three weeks - will pass the finish line against the backdrop of the Colosseum.

The route through the city will begin in the EUR district, making its way to the coast at Lido di Ostia along Via Cristoforo Colombo, before heading into the centre.

The 17.6 km circuit will be repeated five times before ending on Via dei Fori Imperiali.

The route will make its way past numerous landmarks along the way, from Castel S. Angelo and St Peter's to the Circus Maximus and Baths of Caracalla.

It will be the fifth time that the race ends in Rome, after previous Roman editions in 1911, 1950, 2009 and - controversially - in 2018.

Organisers cut short the prestigious sporting event five years ago due to the potholes and unsuitable cycling conditions of Rome's streets, leading to much criticism directed at then mayor Virginia Raggi.

The race has been held annually since its first edition in 1909, except during the two world wars.
