Brilliant Pass. Wonderful views. We had a convertible Beetle and it was perfect for the roads, and to see the mountains up above the car. Brilliant.

Traveled by car through and over Passo Giau.....wow, spectacular views. Not for the faint of heart but we had a very professional driver.

after the a "snake" road to Passo Giau ( with car ) I thought to " MEN in IL GIRO ". I took-off my hat in front of them. The award is a marvelous landscape of Dolomites.

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.
