We visited the pass whilst staying in a nearby valley in Switzerland. On the day we visited the top of the pass, which is at 2500m, was in cloud and 4 degrees, however the low cloud added to the feeling of being somewhere special. I...More

This is the longer way to cross the border from Italy to Switzerland (adds about 40 minutes to the trip) but the crossing is breathtaking and worth the detour. Once at the top you can see across the mountains and on a clear day the...More

Thinking of the Napoleonic and the Roman troops congested going up hill like caterpillars and the 20 meters of snow in winter, the wind and the -30oC is a heroic context. Now from spring to autumn this pass is open, manageable in terms of slope...More

It's a tunnel.. what else can I say!? Whilst the trip through the pass was fairly short, I was surprised that we had to pay an extra €40 (this is NOT the Vignette, I think it was some form of extra tax(?)) to pass through...More

From start to finish this is a great road ! The scenery the whole way up and down is simply stunning. The road itself winds up and down to the pass and you have every type of bend possible ! Highly recommended !
