The incomparable location of Grand Hotel Bagni Nuovi will allow you to reach in a few minutes the mountain slopes of some of the most famous climbings in the world.
We are very close to Stelvio, Gavia and Mortirolo . Try it, and once back from your climbing the hot water of our Termae and spa center will welcome you in a warm embrace.
Do not call it just climbing, this is the climbing! The most famous climbing in the world of cycling, the most loved, the most desired, the most feared.
No doubt that Mortirolo recalls to our mind the memory of the mythic Pantani when in 1994 he surprised the world winning on the captain Claudio Chiappucci, Berzin and Miguelon Indurain.
It is true that a professional cyclist can complete this climbing into 50 minutes while a simple cyclist can make it into a couple of hours… but he’ll never forget it for all his life.
The climbing to Mortirolo, the “true Mortirolo” starts from a village called Mazzo di Valtellina.
The climbing is immediately challenging , you start with a hard climbing, slope never goes down 10% .
Mortirolo let you never rest, as in 12.5 km you climb up 1.300 mt. Just a few climbings in the world can claim such a drop and medium slope.
The maximum slope is about 18% , during the climbing you never go down 11% slope. After 8 kms from departure, the first big emotion: you are in front of Pantani monument.
Adrenaline fills yuor body, the only view of Pantani will grant you extra energy to go on. At the 9th kms slopes is easier, but just for a few kilometres. The hardest part of the climbing is there waiting for you.
Don’t give up, we’re close to the next kilometer, the wood leaves the place to the meadows.
On the road you can still read the traces of the words of encouragement wrote from supporter for their idols, another injection of energy for you!
Here you are, the final effort till the mythic sign: “Passo Mortirolo”. And here you can take your photos, it will certainly be for you one of the dearest memories...
