If you love to drive mountain passes then should drive on this pass as well. Road is great with amazing views. Even the road to reach the toll plaza (coming from Austrian side) is ery entertaining. At the toll plaza there is a Motorbike museum, ticket was around 10€ (we did not visit the museum). Nice weather is must for any mountain pass since No Views No Fun. Check the official website of Timmelsjoch and you will find all the information you need.

In October, we drove over the mountain pass (aka Passo del Rombo in Italian), which was still open. Because of the dense fog it was a thrilling ride and unfortunately sometimes limited the view to just a few meters. Still it was a beautiful experience!

Passage from Austria to Italy. High in the mountains with spectacular views and nice works of art. A little expensive maybe: 16 euro for a car (single trip)

As you would imagine views are fantastic. Easy to get to from Solden where we stayed we were on our way to Italy. Summit a bit hap hazard with some off the wall sculptures. Very good exhibition on the building of the road. Ate the worst food in Austria or Italy (depending which side of the border I was) there but you don't go for the food I suppose. Summit cafe in process of being renovated.

If you ever drive to Italy from Austria or vice versa don't cheat yourself for this trip through the Timmelsjoch pass via via Ötztal.
Narrow roads and some really amazing views - bring lunch and stop somewhere and enjoy it and the views.
Do remember cash for the toll road - no cards accepted last time I did the trip ;)
