State Route 44 brought me from Merano to Vipiteno. This route climbs the "Passo del Giovo" (Jaufenpass), and offers spectacular views on the Alps. The Route is easy enough, with always space for two cars running in opposite directions. There are several hairpin turns, and if you end up behind a slow vehicle there are few possibilities to pass. This route is very well kept, and even if there was snow on the highest section, the street was clean. The wonderful views you enjoy are well worth taking a slower route!

We took the pass after spending the night in Merano (a terrific city on its own and well worth a visit), rather than back-tracking to Bergamo and then heading north through the Brenner Pass. This route adds perhaps 1-2 hours to the drive, but the views are absolutely spectacular. The pass is often closed in winter, of course - we drove it with no issues on Oct 17th - so be sure to check on the status. The road is in good shape, two lanes up and down, with turn-outs. The southern Italian side is much more scenic than the northern side, especially since on the northern side you are often in the trees. There is a cafe at the top of the pass.

We actually intended to cross from the Austrian Ötz valley via Timmlerjoch to South Tirol. But there was a temperature drop and within a couple of hours the rain in the lower regions turned into snow in the mountains. So we had to take the longer route via Brenner and Jaufen Pass where the road was cleared by snow plough. What a surprise to be caught all over sudden in heavy snowfalls on our way to our summer holidays! I will always remember the amazed looks of everyone stopping at the top of the Jaufen Pass to take pictures of the over 20cm snow. Some of the persons coming up from South Tirol still in shorts :-). I suppose the picture I took doesn’t look anything special unless you know it was taken on September 8th 2019. Next day we had over 20 degrees in Meran.

......that was the choice on Easter Monday. And a hard choice it was. The decision was in favor of the season opener for the motorcycle. The Jaufenpass or Passo di Giovo is prime destination for motorcycling in the Alps.
