Great Mountain Pass, if you love ride with your motorbike, you need to come here before die. The best direction to do it is coming from Trentino - Süd-Tyrol Region to Lombardia. Try to avoid July-August because you can find heavy traffic (lots of motorbikes,...More

This is one of the most amazing climbs in the world for cyclists. Alot of motorists and motorcycles share the road but a must if you love to cycle

This road is definately a sight to see! All the hairpin curves and nice views along with it. Take your time when you visit this place, don't just drive through!

Picked up a new Porsche and drove the alps. Although had heard this pass was overrated, we found it exhilarating and definitely worth the time. Decided to drive it on a weekday to miss the weekend traffic and found traffic to be pretty light. Amazing...More
