Owner description: The Giau Pass (Italian: Passo di Giau) (ladin lenguage: Jof de Giau) (el. 2236 m.) is a high mountain pass in the Dolomites in the province of Belluno in Italy. It connects Cortina d'Ampezzo and Colle Santa Lucia. It is located at the center of a vast mountain pasture at the foot of Nuvolau (2,574 m) and dell'Averau (2,647 m) from which you can easily reach the Monte Pore (2,405 m).

“Great riding and driving route with scenic view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Passo Giau is a must go if you are visiting the dolomites, scenic view up the route, and rewarding when you reached the top! Actual views are much better than the photographs.

Beware of the cyclists and motorcycles if you are driving up the route, there are at least 20 bends up to the top and same amount down.

“Starting point for hiking trips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

You can get by car there and the place itself offers nice views. But it is also the starting point for a hiking trip to Rifugio Averau, 5Torri and back.

“Sunny valley, terrific fauna, delicious cheese!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Val Fiorentina is a pearl. Despite being surrounded by the highest mountains of the alps, the valley is amazingly sunny. During winter time, we were at Santa Fosca village. We had facilities for children, your poppy can easily take skii lessons meanwhile you are drinking and relaxing at Baita al Sole. Summer time, terrific trekking for every kind of taste, wonderful landscapes and many animals as chamois and dears. The best pizza at Dolomiti!
