Giro 2023 Route stage 6: Naples - Naples

Giro d'Italia 2023Thursday 11 May - The 6th stage on the Italian Grand Tour is the Giro di Napoli. The 152 kilometres route features 2,800 vertical metres. Most of the climbing is packed inside the first 100 kilometres.

False flat up, false flat down – that’s the route in the first 20 kilometres. The riders then move through Pompei and continue towards the foot of the Valico di Chiunzi, a 8.3 kilometres climb at 6.3%. After the KOM points have been awarded the route continues to climb for a bit until the descent begins at kilometre 55.

The riders reach the Mediterranean Sea in Amalfi and continue along the coast in northerly direction. The route returns to climbing in Positano – 2.8 kilometres at 5,3% – and moments later the Picco Sant’Angelo makes an entrance. The 9.6 kilometres climb at 4% runs all the way to the peninsula bordering the southern part of the Gulf of Naples.

The riders fly down a technical descent into Sorrento to head off towards Naples again. The last 55 kilometres are as good as flat.

The Tour of Italy visited Naples 47 times before. The first time was in 1909 and the last time was last year, when Thomas De Gendt won the stage from the breakaway.

The second intermediate sprint comes with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.

    I want to ride this stage. Is it practical to ride it the day before the Giro stage? Will the course be marked the day before, 10-5-23?
    Thank you,
    visiting cyclist

      We don’t think the route will be marked, but you could download our free gpx of the route. That said, the roads in and near Naples tend to be not very cyclist friendly.
