Naturns/Naturno

Open-air activities and internationally recognized "wellness" facilities: Naturns/Naturno stands out for its Alpine-Mediterranean lifestyle. An ideal place for active holidays, and for families who have the opportunity to take the Unterstell cableway leading to the Monte Sole. From the top of the mountain, a network of paths leads the tourist to discover the ancient "Waal", the old bisses typical of ancient South Tyrolean irrigation systems.

Valle del Chiese/Pieve di Bono

Centuries-old religious traditions have left many traces in the Valle del Chiese: Pieve di Bono is one of the clearest examples. The main points of interest are the Castel Romano, reachable through the wonderful botanical path, and the Forte Larino, where you can get by walking along the most iconic sites of the Great War. In ancient times, the village represented the economic and political center of the homonymous valley.

Description

The longest stage also presents the greatest overall elevation gain; for this reason the fourth stage can rightly be defined a key stage. The circuit leading out of Naturns/Naturno starts with a straight uphill, the first KOM of the day is located slightly later, when the group will be crossing the 1706-meters-long Passo Castrin tunnel, the highest spot of the 2020 Tour of the Alps. The long descent will carry the riders to Val di Non, leaning towards Dimaro. After the flat-out downhill, the road will begin to rise again towards Passo Campo Carlo Magno: almost 1000 meters gain allocated over 14 km. The following climb will be the Selle Giudicarie, near Tione. However, the strongest athletes will probably decide to play the deciding card on the brand-new ascent of Castel Condino towards Boniprati: 10 km of vertical ascent ending 7km far from the Pieve di Bono finish line.
