Starting on May 9th you can witness the comeback kid Lance Armstrong pedal among the rolling hills and seaside of Italy in the 2009 Giro d’Italia. Now you can see Lance and the boys and sleep cheap along the route plus get a bang-up meal upon your return from the grueling Pergola to Monte Petrano stage (May 25th) in the Marche region.
Yes, Ashley of La Tavola Marche is offering a 5% discount on your stay (24th, 25th & 26th of May – extra days welcome) if you mention Wandering Italy Blog.
And wait! There’s more!
Also we offer a four course FEAST for 30 Euro a person – all made by hand at the house – antipasti, primo, secondo, dolce, caffe & digestivo.
And believe me, the food in the Marche is extraordinary. You’ll be near Urbino, a delightful town nobody seems to visit much, and Urbania where you can go to language school or buy some great ceramics.
Pergola to Monte Petrano is a hilly stage. Watch the muscles in all those fab legs get all gelatinous while you contemplate wolfing down your evening meal. There are worse preoccupations you know. (I love work. I can watch it for hours…)
