“For motorbike-travelers it is a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

You use your motorbike for touring, traveling, and you rather enjoy the scenery than the speed? Passo dello Stelvio is a must, then! The 48 hairpin turns (and add the campers, cars and cyclists) will challenge your riding abilities and will leave you breathless once on the top (where even in the summer you might find snow).

“One of teh best cycling climb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

Going from Prato allo Stelvio isn't so difficult as it could seem. But in any case on MTB it takes cca 5 hours to reach the top and weather can change fast even in summer.

“excellent road and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2011

From Tirano to Merano over Passo dello Stelvio was something you probaly do once in a lifetime. It was cloudy and rainy and we drove inside clouds. For some moments we did not see anything but fog... Worth driving whether it rains or the sun shiones. It was a pity that we didn´t do it by motorbikes! Maybe some day?

“A must see for yourself to appreciate this awesome road..!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2011

After watching an episode of 'top gear' mentioning the Stelvio Pass in Italy, we felt we needed to see and experience for ourselves. We arrived beginning July and were unprepared for the Pouring rain and very wet roads. It took a long time to get there + - 4 hours from Zurich but worth the numb bottom at the end. A thick cloud had decended and view was completely wiped out when we reached the top, this eerieness however didnt last long and once the cloud dispersed, we were left with an absolutely awesome sight..! The drive down is not for the 'cruisers' as most drivers were 'peddling' it really fast...! Couple of points to take note however - there are a lot of cyclists and walkers out there (in my opinion, taking their life in their hands) but a complete and utter thrill of a ride, definitely for the fainthearted..!
