Do you love cycling or motorcycling and are you looking for a new challenge?
How about exploring the winding mountain Stelvio pass? It is the highest pass in Italy and at the same time the second highest paved pass in the Alps.
The approximately 50 km long road between Spondinig in South Tyrol and Bormio in Valtellina was built by the Austrian Empire under Habsburg rule in six years.
On the South Tyrolean side begins the exciting road near Prad am Stilfser Joch (915 m above sea level) and leads with 48 bends over the villages Gomagoi (1.273 above sea level) and Trafoi (1.540 above sea level) to the highest point (2,757 m above sea level) of the Stelvio pass.
Between the beginning of June and the end of October, the road is open for traffic.
If you are one of those who do not like the summer, visit the glacier ski area Stelvio, which is open for skiing and snowboarding during the summer months.
