On the 28th May, our region will host an important sporting event. The Giro d’Italia (‘the Tour of Italy’ bike race) will stop over in Verbania. Beginning in Switzerland, it will run along the Piedmontese coast of Lake Maggiore to Cannero Riviera. From there it will continue up to Trarego before passing through the ‘Gran Premio’ in the Colle Mountain. After the ascent, they will descend headlong into Verbania.
On the 7th June 2015, the most important mountain running race will take place: the Intrasca valley marathon. It is a team race that takes place over 36km with a difference in height of 1500m through beautiful sections in the mountains of our region with breath-taking views.
