The VIP venue offers snacks, drinks and TVs to watch the race before the racers pass in front of us on their way to the finish line!

Day 04

VIP Start Village and Segovia tour

Today we visit the start village in Avila, the town where we are staying. We will make our way to the village, where you can watch the riders sign in for the day, walk around the team bus area and see the start of the race. Our VIP passes will allow us to be close to the starting line as the pros depart.

This is always one of the favorite activities for our guests as you see the racers come out of the team buses and jump on their bikes. Some guests get autographs and pictures with the pros.

After the racers depart, we will drive to Segovia, a beautiful town where we will tour the Segovia Aqueduct, a 2,000 year old structure built by the Romans to bring water from the nearby mountains to the town. This structure is featured on the Euro currency, so many of you may recognize it. We will explore the town before heading back to Avila.
