May 5, 2016 – The 2016 Giro d’Italia features six mountaintop finishes, three of which are at high altitude (Alpe di Siusi, Risoul, Sant’Anna di Vinadio), with the remaining three in the ‘medium’ mountains of Roccaraso, Sestola and Andalo.

Below is a list of the race’s mountain stages, although it is worth noting that, unlike the Tour de France, none of the most difficult climbs on the Giro d’Italia are labelled ‘unclassified’. On the Italian race the most difficult climbs are classed ‘category one’ or ‘first category’, although the highest summit, the Col d’Agnel (2744 metres), has been named the ‘Coppi Climb’ in honour of the now deceased legendary Italian champion Fausto Coppi.
