Fantastic Col, we travelled it on motorcycles at the end of a long day in the saddles. Great views and another tick in the box....

“Ride this alp and the award is a great view”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

Loved the views, the experience and the satisfaction of being in the alpes. We found the shop come restaurant on the other side and enjoyed a light meal with a great view and plenty of sunshine. The shope has a variety of products worth a look.

“WOW WOW WOW. You will see what I mean when YOU visit”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Having hired an automatic car for the very purpose of driving this kind of road, we were not disappointed. The view was simply breathtaking, and at the top, at 2,642metres elevation, the air is clean and the breeze is refreshing. Regardless of which side you approach the pass from, the view in both directions is amazing. DO VISIT, I cannot say any more...... Seriously!!
