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...More

This really is a road worth driving. Be aware that your clutch may suffer on the way up and your brakes on the way down, but it's all worth it. The only slight drawback are the hoards of cyclists who seem to think they own...More

This is a challenging but do able climb which has much to offer. There are tunnels, views, hairpin sections, long straights, glaciers, the odd old building etc. Very enjoyable.

One of the passes which is a must do on a motorcycle. Lots of hairpin bends, stunning views and a great ride. The only negative was the cycle race which made it extremely busy.

Decided to cycle the 48 hairpins with wife and son. Worth every agonising pedal stroke. First section in the trees is fine mainly because you can't see what is ahead. Emerging from the trees with 7ks to go and all you can see is the...More

We were going from Lake Como to Val Gardena and our GPS decided that this was the road to choose. In hindsight I'm glad it that. It's funny because you're asked by it whether you really want to use a ferry or a non-asphalt road,...More

It's everything you read and more. It's never that hard, but 24.5km and 48 switchback of climbing sort of wear you down. Another bucket list ticked off!
