For the duration of the competition week, the Race Village will be both the home of the competitors and the logistics base of the organization. Think of it as 30% camping, 30% mountain village, 20% logistic space, and 20% summer festival. Seriously, the race village is a complex kaleidoscope of activities and services that is set up and dismantled in record time to be ready for the finish line of each stage and welcome athletes, supporters and the media.
In addition to basic services such as the restaurant, bathrooms and showers, massage area and medical, bike park and dormitory, there is also the expo area with the mechanical service, entertainment area, and relaxation area.
Some areas of the Race Village have controlled entrance such as the dormitory area and the bike park. Accredited athletes and accompanying persons should always wear their identification bracelets to access and circulate in the controlled entry areas and to enter the restaurant.

And of course, you will also find the race office and the media office right in the race village.
Shops will be open and you can even go to a restaurant and try the typical dishes.
Some villages feature the thermal waters of Emilia Romagna and you can take advantage of their Spas (fees might apply).
