The Tour of Lombardy is a men's road cycling race that takes place in Lombardy every year, in the month of October. Regarded as one of the five Monuments of cycling, it is part of the Autumn Classics, known as the "Race of the Falling Leaves," and traditionally marks the end of the Italian cycling season.
The route of the race has changed many times over the years, but its symbol remains the Ghisallo, a famous climb that starts from Bellagio and leads to the Madonna del Ghisallo chapel, the patroness of cyclists. Equally renowned is the ascent of the Muro di Sormano, which has been present in some editions of the race (currently eliminated).
This year, the event will take place on October 7, 2023, so mark the day on your calendar, and if you don't know where to stay, keep reading!
