Once the flag is dropped the route climbs 9.4 kilometres to Rocca Priora. The climb is averaging 4%, but also takes in ramps up to 10%. Following the descent it goes back uphill again on the road to Rocca di Papa. It is a hard climb of approximately 5 kilometres with an average gradient of 7% and maximum ramps of 20%.
The route continues through the Parco dei Castelli Romani, a Natural Regional Park with two beautiful lakes. The Giro d’Italia penetrates the regio of Lazio. A long descent runs south and after more than 30 kilometres on the flat the last hurdle appears in Sezze Scalo. A 4.3 kilometres ascent at 5% leads to Sezze before the route continues a few more kilometres at a lesser gradient. With around 47 kilometres remaining the riders fly down a descent and the last 40 kilometers are played out on the flat.
The finish is in Terracina, a town with 45,000 inhabitants. The last Giro arrival was in 2000 and Christian Moreni won the stage in a sprint finish.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the second intermediate sprint – at kilometre 67.8 – comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
