The Stelvio pass can be climbed from Prato, the most famous access. Also from Santa Maria is with great views, passing the Umbrel pass. From Bormio, there is a lot off traffic, so take a car-free day like the 1st of september, as is supported by the "climbing for life event".

During our 25 day road trip Stelvio was on my bucket list of roads to drive, we approached from the south. Unfortunately it didn't quite live up to my expectations, although it was spectacular drive up. The top was a little shabby very crowded. I know there are much better passes to climb in the Alps. We descended down the... More

The first thing I have to say: this is an amazing road! I left Bormio on a nice Sunday evening (pretty late, it was around 4-5 PM) and headed up for the Stelvio Pass. I had seen the road many times before on TV - basically every year during il Giro d'Italia. I started the climb in sun and ended... More

Negotiated the road up from the north side. The first hairpins are more difficult as they are surrounded by forests. The last section is awesome but the pass itself is tatty although a variety of food is available. Parked without problems overnight at the top €20 sees you to the top via the cable cars. A fantastic drive. Drive south... More

The alps offer some of the most beautiful and thrilling mountains in the world. Stelvio is one of the best, if not the best. It is also rated as one of the 10 most dangerous roads in the world. But if you are a seasoned driver, no problem. Just take your time. We rode (on motorcycles) over 22 alpine passes... More

If you visit Bormio during Spring/Summer, the Stelvio Pass is one of the things to do. You can go up to the mountains by car or by bus. By car is better as you have the possibility to stop in several areas to take picture and enjoy the landscape. The view from upthere is stunning as you can see the... More
