    When you arrive on the top of the Stelvio Pass at the altitude of almost 3000 mt. the view is really impressive.

    Take a breath and relax, enjoy the fantastic view and look down to have an idea of how long the road to the top is.

    Delicious sandwiches are sold on the road right on top of the Stelvio Pass.
    They are really tasty and not expensive at all.

    Favorite thing: The Stelvio Pass, is the highest mountain pass in Europe, at the altitude of almost 3000 mt.

    Originally the road was built between 1820-1825 by the Austrian Empire in order to connect the former privince of Lombardia with Austria.

    To get on top, there are 60 hairpin bends, and 48 of them, that are on the northern side, are numbered with stones.

    The pass retain an importance for sport during the opening season (June-September).
    Many cyclists and motorcyclists struggle to get on top of the mountain.
