    Spectator Experience (non-riding)

3 May 2024 - 27 May 2024

You don't need to be on your bike to enjoy the passion, excitement and spectacle of the Giro d'Italia. As an Official Tour Operator of the Giro, we can also offer VIP Spectator (non-rider) experiences, from the start-line and finish-line VIP zones, to following the peloton in a car or helicopter. Join us for an extraordinary experience, close to the pros.

You may wish to bring your non-riding partner to the Giro on one of the tours you're cycling. Or you may be a non-cyclist who wants to see the Giro up close and personal. Either way, we can offer you or your partner some extraordinary experiences as a spectator.

Pick your stage - do you wish to be at the start line of the Giro d'Italia ? Or do you wish to be right on the finish line at the top of the big mountain stages? Or would you like to follow the pros in a car as the peloton climbs over a famous col? And at all times being treated as a VIP?

Please note that this is for a VIP ticket only and does not include hotel or transport. You will pick your accreditation badge at the Giro desk situated near the start or finish area on the day of the race. Contact us for details.

  • Follow the Race Experience - Car & Helicopter

    Any Stage

    €670 - €1,890

    Following the race in a car just behind the peloton is nearly as exciting as being in the race itself, but not quite as exhausting. This package allows you to follow the stage in an official Giro car, as it races along the course with the crowds inches away (cost €1,400 per person). Or you can follow one of your favourite pro cyclists in either of the two ITT stages - 7 or 14 (cost €670 per person). On some stages, a helicopter ride over the race is also offered (cost €1,890 per person, including the car experience). These packages also include the Start-Line and Finish-Line VIP Hospitality.

  • Ride across the Finish Line

    Any stage

    You too can ride across the finish line, just a couple of hours ahead of the pros, and then jump onto the podium for a wave to the cheering crowds! But at Grand Tours Project, we reserve this experience for those who are prepared to earn their stripes by joining us in one of our riding tours and cycle either the full stage ('Ride Every Kilometre') or 60-100km of the stage ('Experience' or 'Getaway'). So come join us for the ride of your lifetime, on 3, 6 or all 21 stages! If you have only one day for cycling with us, get in contact as you can join for 1 stage and cross the finish line with us.
