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

I can hardly imagine a better place in a world to enjoy a damn good cup of espresso coffee at a sunny day :-)

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.

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.
