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).

Extra charges to use the toilets if you didn't buy anything; very strange "pay before ordering" system. Strange atmosphere!

Relatively quiet moubntain pass, sweeping bends and stunning mountain views make for a great drive. Sometimes the pass may be closed for a cycle race so check before departing,
