Ferrara, the Renaissance World Heritage Site placed in the middle of the Padana plains between Emilia and Veneto regions, is waiting for you. Ferrara is a treasure chest of architectural masterpieces and medieval streets, all of which create a magical atmosphere. All of the historical landmarks are also waiting for you: the majestic Estense Castle surrounding by one of last remaining moats in Europe; the splendid Cathedral; the Ariostea square, where the historic Palio of Ferrara is held; the “Palazzo dei Diamanti” (the Diamond palace,) home of important art exhibitions; and the grandiose medieval walls which frame the start and the end of the Granfondo race.

Winning is not important, but rather being able to admire the unique scene that unfolds before your eyes. Therefore, we recommend that you raise your eyes and enjoy a particular Granfondo. Even if you aren’t participating, don’t think that you will get out of pedaling! After the start of the race, the town of Ferrara, the city of bicyles, will be waiting for you!

For the smaller children, the adult bicycles will be equipped with a child’s seat, whereas there will be a child’s bicycle for the older children.
