This is such a beautiful place - don't miss it. It is a perfect base for hiking or ferrata trips in the mountains. Fantastic.

We went up to Passo Giau when we were visiting Cortina. This was a really worthwhile trip. It's around 20kms to the top of the pass and the views are fantastic. I have never felt so close to the top of mountain peaks, by road, before.

Passing it by car with no problems, fees, taking wonderful photos, enjoying the view and "making friends"with local horses. Also meeting some more Slovenes, taking driving trip on their motorbikes. :)

We came along this route simply because the main road from Cortina to Belluno was closed. Could not believe what an absolutley gorgeous route it is.

If you like twists and bends, ups and downs, fabulous views and changing scenery, go here...wow. The weather was perfect for our trip, the photographs are amazing, even though lots of people at the top, motorbikes, cars, cyclists, you felt that only you were there

Go there and see ! It is a wonderful place with an excellent view to surrounding mountains. You will see Marmolada, Civetta, Cortina, Tofana and other ....there are good refugios Averau and Novelau close to Passo Giau, where you can walk in cca 45 minutes . Recommended!

We visited in a rental car. Afternoon drive from Cortina over Giao and long way back to Pieve di Cadore.

Giau is one of the most scenic passes in the Dolomites. Reaching it by bike is THE way of course. The surrounding panorama is simply jawdropping! The atmosphere around the hut is great and very peculiar... Recommended!!!
