The Giro d'Italia will start in Hungary next year.

The prelude stage will take place in Budapest, followed by two further stages on Hungarian soil.

Giro d'Italia organizers made the announcement on Tuesday at the Italian Cultural Institute in Budapest.

It will be the Grand Tour's 14th start outside of Italy, with the most recent being in Israel last year.

This year's Giro d'Italia will begin in Bologna on May 11 and conclude in Verona on June 2.
