THE BIGGEST ADVENTOURING EVENT
It reaches its 12th edition the legendary HARDALPITOUR that, thanks to the constant participation of about 500 motorcyclists from over 15 countries, can be defined as the biggest Adventouring event in Europe. The departure will be once again from Sanremo, a place particularly appreciated by participants and companions, especially foreigners, who find reasons of interest and entertainment in this seaside town: from sandy beaches to the famous Casino, to the elegant shops of the historic center. Also renewed the collaboration with the Casino of Sanremo, which will host the participants in its theatre for the HAT Night and the briefing.
The Piazzale Dapporto (former Station), close to the sea, will host the HAT Village with the starting stage and the stands of the many partners of the event, welcoming the gathering of the many participants.
