Fantastic experience
Aug 2020
We drove up here as part of a tour of most of the swiss alps. We went up the classic way from the austrian side winding up the 40+ hairpins as the views got more & more dramatic. The view from the top down the austrian side is awesome, but take an insulated layer as at over 2700mt it can be quite chilly even in high summer. It does get quite busy & touristy at the top but whet do you expect.

Great views during and at the end of the trip

Really nice views on this mountain road. 40+ U-turns and at some places pretty narrow but a joy to drive and look around!
Coming from the north-east is the steepest drive, from the north (CH) and south it is not.
The top itself is very touristic but still great views.

The tenth most dangerous road in the world
Sep 2018 • Couples
It's meant to be the tenth most dangerous road in the world, but if you get the chance to drive or ride up the amazing hairpin bends, do it! The views are simply amazing and although there are bike riders and motorbikes to dodge climbing up the pass, it's still a fantastic drive.
We chose to do the pass early in the day before the traffic up and down became too daunting. We drove up the afternoon before and stayed up top.
We also did the Cable Car to the Glacier (Livrio) where Ski Teams of all ages were practicing their Slalom skills.
Don't think about it, just do it! You wont be disappointed!

One of the greatest alpenpasses
Sep 2018 • Couples
Very nice aplenpass, with lots og harpins. The roads are fairly wide, så that at least a car and a mc can pass each other. Popular for bicycling and MC. Can be crowded during the summer season, tryd to avoid it. September is a good month, avoid saturdays and sundays, the local motorcycle heros are out riding. And don't start to early in the day, mid day or afternoon is no so crowded. Offer restaurants and hotels on the way up, and on the top. It offers spectacular views and experiences, try it from both sides

An amazing place to visit!
Sep 2018
The road is a must for a true petrolhead! If you don't own a fancy and expencive race car, but you love to watch them fly by, then this is a perfect place to observe them. Just spend a day by the road and all the fancy cars will pass you by - Lotuses, Merc's, Lamborghinis, Caterhams, BMW's, McLarens, Jaguars, Aston Martins... you name it! And if you are a fan of motorbikes you can do the same, because they gather up there too. And mountainrunners, hikers and bicycle bikers aswell. The top of the road hosts you with ski-resort hotels if you are a skier! So plentyful place!

Fantastic pass, BUT!
Aug 2018 • Solo
Beware that as a car driver (i had a BMW M4) you WILL come across other drivers who don’t know how to judge distances properly and almost push you into a wall or drive into you around bends and hairpin curves. The road at times is much narrower than two cars, let alone some campers or large SUVs which made it up. Also, constant barrage of motorcycles buzzing around you, revving, accelerating, not giving way to anyone but their own. Don’t think this will go fast, take your time, be prepared to stop, back up and squeeze the heck out of your driving skills! And be patient! Photo taken on our way to the start of the actual pass.

Impressive but not the best.
Sep 2017 • Friends
I've been there on September 17, 2017 and although it was a week day road was very busy. We stayed at Camping Cima Piazzi at Valdisotto and arrived the pass at 10:00 but is was almost busy with cars, bikes and hikers. We were traveling by motorbike and climbing hill from Bormio was okay however the dowhill ride towards Trento was awful. Road was completely blocked by cars, caravans and a small loryy was squeezed on one curve and it was disabled. I recommend to stop at Merano Meran after riding on Stelvio. I liked Grossglockner and Furkapass more than Stelvio

Where do you start?
The pass is long, the views are amazing, the road is challenging and the coffee at the top was excellent!
I have always wanted to do this pass and I enjoyed the whole experience.

No one can deny attractiveness of this road , but the sad true is that usually you have to accept a compromise and drive very carefully and slowly. Since there is a lot of bikers and bicycles that are cutting the curves, you must almost stop on every inner bend, praying that some biker coming downhill will not end up on your windshield.
Only way to realy feel the Stelvio road is either you start ascent very early, about 7-8 am, or to shoot Top Gear or something similar.

Passo dello Stelvio...the best mountain road in the world!
Sep 2017 • Couples
If you like mountain roads Passo dello Stelvio should be on your bucket-list! This road has been a lifetime dream for me ever since I visited northern Italy as a child and to be able to drive it myself has been a dream come through! Spend some time up on the summit to have some fast-food or to just stretch your legs before heading on to the other side of the mountain descending down again.
