Stage 9
Riccione > San Marino

giro-d-italia-2019-stage-8-profile-cdf72

A time trial of nearly 35 km, starting on a slight incline for 22 km, all the way to the final 12 km climb. After Faetano, the road rises at steeper (however, not forbidding) gradients, especially in the first part, with peaks around 10% and an average 6.5% slope as far as to Fiorentino. From here, false flat drags alternate with counter-sloping stretches. The gradients go back to approx. 6% in the last 2 km. The roads are broad and well surfaced throughout the stage. The route covers the first 450 m on the seafront cycle path, on narrowed and bending roadway.
 

Final kilometres

After a brief descent, the last 2.5 km point uphill, with gradients reaching 10% over short stretches. The finish line (5 m in width) sits on a 300 m long tarmacked home straight (slightly downhill over the last 50 m).

Discover the Departure

Riccione

 Riccione-1.jpg

  

Situated on the Adriatic Riviera of Romagna, Riccione is one of the most famous seaside resorts on the Adriatic. A very rich show schedule with amazing events makes Riccione the undisputed destination for thousands of people with different targets, but everyone looking for originality and tips to get quality products. Performances, shows and festivals, concerts, cinema and theatre, the big sports events, the trendy shopping together with theme parks, clubs on the beach and on the hills, hang around with guests every month of the year.

 

Gastronomy

Romagna is a land that can be defined even by its food flavours, well known all over the world. Piadina is here a benchmark: this symbol of the local cuisine is not to be missed on the table, and you should taste it hot together with raw ham and other cold cuts or spreading soft cheese on it, such as squacquerone or, a timeless classic, with anchovies. First courses are mostly made up of handmade pasta (tagliatelle, strozzapreti, ravioli, gnocchi, cappelletti), and then meat or fish, the latter as a real protagonist in the local cuisine, prepared according to tradition, but more and more often made with bright originality. You can taste the food of Romagna together with a glass of wine from hills of Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Rebola, vine varieties that achieved high quality levels.

 

Places of Interest

Walking along the promenade is recommended in every season just to enjoy the big pedestrian zone overlooking the beach, full of green. The Art Nouveau style cottages are another valuable aspect of Riccione, as well as the Agolanti Castle overlooking the town from the hill or the beautiful Saviolina, the historic boat that is one of the symbols of the Riccione identity. Waiting for the sunset, sitting on the benches of the pier is a show that is not to be missed. Riccione is also the ideal place to visit the nearby Conca and Marecchia wide valleys, a territory with a beautiful landscape, rich of history, art and fortresses by the Malatesta Signoria.

Discover the Arrival

San Marino

 SanMarino-5.jpg

  

The Republic of San Marino is a small open-air art museum. Walking through its old town feels like plunging in the Middle Ages and enjoying its timeless charm. Don’t miss out on the many artistic attractions: the Basilica of St. Marinus, the small St. Peter’s Church, St. Francis’ Church and its Museum, the State Museum and National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art. San Marino’s cultural tradition and its values of authenticity, freedom and identity have remained unchanged over the centuries: this is why UNESCO listed the old towns of San Marino and Borgo Maggiore, along with Monte Titano, as World Heritage Sites.

 

Gastronomy

 The culinary traditions of San Marino are those of Romagna, with some influx from the Marche region, as close ties have always existed with Montefeltro. On San Marino tables, piadina and homemade pasta are never missing, nor are vegetables prepared in various ways. San Marino food and wine products include extra-virgin olive oil, cheeses, meats, milk, wines and honey. All the products are guaranteed by a quality seal which identifies San Marino manufacturers through a single food certification mark called “Consorzio Terra di San Marino”.

Places of Interest

The old-town centre is located on the top of Mount Titano, 750 m above sea level. The mighty medieval stone walls enclose the original settlement, it too built entirely of stone and closed to traffic. The old-town centre is criss-crossed by narrow streets lined with buildings and monuments. The three Fortresses at the top of the Mount give San Marino its best-known image and are linked by a path that runs along the entire ridge of the mountain. Inside the second Fortress is the museum of historical weapons. Located in the higher part of town is the Basilica del Santo where a number of institutional ceremonies are performed and the Church of San Pietro, with the beds of the Saints Marinus and Leo. The Church of San Francesco, dating back to the 14th century has an annexed art gallery. Not far away is the Church of the Cappuccini and the State Museum housed in the recently-restored Palazzo Pergami. Piazza della Libertà is the heart of the country’s institutional life. Here stands the Public Palace (1894), where the Great and General Council (the Parliament) sits. The Building was restored for the 1994 centenary by Gae Aulenti. The public can visit the room where the Parliament sits and admire the large fresco by the Roman artist Retrosi, dating back to the late-19th century. The San Marino National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art is hosted at the Logge dei Volontari (Volunteers’ Loggias), a wonderful building erected at the end of the 1930s and recently restored for this purpose. The Museum exhibits a selection of works of art from the Contemporary Art Collection of San Marino, which is formed by over a thousand pieces. Some of them were created by the most renowned Italian artists of the 20th century: Renato Guttuso, Emilio Vedova, Sandro Chia, Enzo Cucchi, Corrado Cagli, Giuseppe Spagnulo, Enzo Mari, Luigi Ontani and others, together with the most distinguished local painters and sculptors.
