Majesty and Dolomites are a couple of words that settle well in the same sentence! Passo Giau has majesty in spades. Pros: Majesty (even when snowing.... as was the case with us), great drive up (in both directions - it is the steepest of the Dolomite passes) and food and drink available if you so desire. Cons: as is always... More

We have renewed our 40 year old acquaintance with the dolomites, and of course driven over many passes. We left this to last, and it is one of the best for breathtaking views. Well engineered road.

Passo Giau is a must go if you are visiting the dolomites, scenic view up the route, and rewarding when you reached the top! Actual views are much better than the photographs. Beware of the cyclists and motorcycles if you are driving up the route, there are at least 20 bends up to the top and same amount down.

You can get by car there and the place itself offers nice views. But it is also the starting point for a hiking trip to Rifugio Averau, 5Torri and back.

Drove along Passo Giau to get to Cortina D'Ampezzo from Bolzano. The spectacular scenery and views are not to be missed and very hard to forget. Will recommend the drive to anyone

I have stayed at Passo Giau many times with friends and groups I take there - the food is excellent and the atmosphere out of this world - you have to go this place for lunch or better yet to stay and enjoy a fabulous dinner prepared by Diego the owner and served by Claudia. Their son Igor is spending... More
