You can leave the car and go to the top of the Lagazuoi (you can walk or take the cable car - it’s not a difficult walk but is is not easy either. The World War I tunnel is though as it is very slippery - it’s a chilometrate long path with irregular steps). When you get to the top it feels you are almost in heaven - just a bit of a busy heaven as it is a very popular spot

I visited with my family during ski season (we took a bus there from San Cassiano and paid it 18 euros).

When we got there it was a huge 'line' for the cable car. We waited in 'line'for an hour. And calling it a line is putting it nicely. People on people, getting frustrated, pushing and shoving. There was an italian family particulary unplesant. Pushing people with their skies.

Basicaly when we got on top (300 years later) there was a good view (but a good view you can find anywhere in Dolomit - its kind of their thing). We skied a little and had to pay a taxi back to San Cassiano (6 euros)
Ahhhhhh....super disappointed.

Soooo to finish if you LOVE sking do yourself a favour and just spend your skiing time on the AMAZING Sellaronda :)

Excellent views from a pass nestled in the center of the Dolomites. Lots of parking and nearby walking paths. Can access the cable car easily (highly recommended!).

Fantastic scenic Mountain View at Lagazuoi with some areas still covered with snow. Felt like on top of the world. Highly recommended.

I have been here a few times and every time just gets better. The scenery is just breathtaking and we traveled up the cable car to Rifugio Lagazuoi where the views just got better and better. I can’t wait to come back.

Passo Falzarego is a mountain pass that has 33 hairpin curves going up and 27 coming down, for a grand total of 60. As is the custom in the Dolomites, each hairpin curve is marked with its number and elevation.

At the top, you definitely want to take the cable car/gondola ride to Lagazuoi Peak, for both its history and the magnificence of its views. This peak was the object of heavy combat and mine warfare in WWI, causing the Italians to tunnel under the Austrian lines. We very much would have liked to explore the tunnels, but they were closed (early June) due to the snow.

We enjoy visiting ski resorts and their mountains during spring and summer months, and especially enjoy riding the cable cars/gondolas to their peaks. Our experience in the U.S. has been that the gondola rides usually pass several towers before reaching the top, and usually the gondola is not that high off the ground. This gondola, however, crossed zero towers and the assent to 9,062 feet was rapid and steep. We were way off the ground. We met a family from Colorado and we all agreed this ride beats anything in Colorado.

Another difference is that in the U.S. cable cars run continuously. You pay and the next car may be waiting for you. Here, there were only two cars running, one coming down as the other went up; but the ride is less than 5 minutes, so the wait was negligible. We were there mid-morning in early June and had no line to contend with. According to a a woman from the Czech Republic who has come to Mount Lagazuoi several times, the peak is crazy crowded in July and August.

There was still a lot of snow at the top in early June. Our intention had been to take the gondola up and walk down; however, the path down was still closed due to the snow.

The view from the top was almost beyond words. Similar to the Grand Canyon, it is a view so vast, so beautiful and so unique that you almost feel unworthy. Pictures cannot do justice.

We hated to come off the mountain.

Great roads, great views, what more could you ask for?

The stunning backdrop of the impressive Dolomites you can never tire of. Every corner seems to bring a more impressive view!!!

The Falzarego Pass (Italian: Passo di Falzarego, Ladin: Jou de Fauzare) is a high mountain pass (2.105 m) in the province of Belluno in Italy. You can drive from Alleghe to Cortina dampezzo on SR48. Fantastic views! At Rifugio Passo Falzarego you can climb with a cable car on Mount Lagazuoi.
