Trento, Trentino-Alto Adige
This morning we travel to the Queen of the Dolomites, the Marmolada and the highest peak of the Dolomites and accessible by cable-car. The southern side is a 1,000m vertical wall and the observation deck offers 360 degree views. At the mid-station is a war museum and is worth visiting as it explores the harsh conditions of war in the Alps – a respectful exhibition and reminder for peace. With a few tough days on the bike, today is an optional tourist day. However, our ride option starts from the base station and climbs the steep pinches of Passo Fedaia, before descending to the start of Passo Pordoi, our main climb of the day. A challenging ride with nearly 2,000m of climbing in just 50km.
