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!!!

Passo Giau is a must-see if you're traveling in/around the Dolomites and have a car. It's easy to drive up to and the views along the way are stunning! We stopped in Cortina for lunch first, then drove up to the top of Giau and had hot chocolates at the bar there (best ever!). It was all amazing, and absolutely... More

Passo Giau is not to be missed if you are in this area. Higher than all the rest, the snow lingers longer and displays itself in vast landscapes of white. The restaurant at the top (which I forget the name of) is a secret 2 Micheln star chef owner/operator. Lunch there was a taste explosion of the highest quality. Staff... More

We were driving to Bolzano through Cortina and drove through this route. The view is fantastic, though we didn't see snowfall, but there was snow all around us in March. Breathtaking. Worth driving to.

One of the beautiful places I've ever been. Astonishing landscapes, fresh snow, cold weather. Everything was perfect. If you are in Cortina, this is a must-see place. I'm not sure about the frequency of the bus service, but by car is very easy to get there. Grab a map at the tourist information by Cortina's church and go.

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.
