The Stelvio was long and hard...but definitely worth it...what a descent watch out for the motorcyclists though !!

This was one of the most beautifull passes with a very nice view from the top. We started in sun and ended in snow on top, with a nice bleu sky.

This is one of the 3 classic climbs featured in the Giro d'Italia. From Bormio you access the back side but the front side is the harder challenge. Great sausage sandwiches at the summit!

This was the highlight of a driving trip from Dover to the Nurburgring via Engelberg, Davos and Southern Germany We approached from Davos, leaving at 0530 to avoid the traffic on a Thursday morning in June. The drive to the top of the pass was phenominal, with clear skies and no traffic. Words do not do this road justice, you... More

Go ride the Stelvio pass if you love driving/riding. I drove a car, and would suggest you go in a performance car to enjoy the route. There were plenty of bike and cycle riders, and heavy traffic on the route perhaps because it opens only in the summer. Avoid the weekends especially.

Nobody and nothing prepared me for the Stelvio pass. The first indication is the sign at the start saying "The road is open"...(only between May to November). The narrow road and hairpin turns going up the mountain into the glacier were at the same time breathtaking and not for the faint of heart. Driving is challenging with motorcycles and bicycles...

Stelvio Pass is a special place but I highly recommend travelling the pass early before the crowds and simply enjoying the drive and the scenery. Unfortunately we had a cloudy day and most of the scenery from the higher sections of the road was obscured but the road itself was clear of traffic so we still had a very enjoyable... More

I found it difficult to find information on the best way to come into the Stelvio regarding best view, best direction to drive it from. So hope this helps anyone else who is also struggling. If you come from Bormio you drive up the Western Ramp which has around 27 hairpin bends - you come to the top of the... More
