Overall rating ⭐⭐⭐
Located in Northern Italy just 13 meters below France’s Col de l'Iseran lies the Stelvio (Stilfser Joch) - a treacherous mountain pass that combines magnificent landscape and adventure for those looking to travel off the beaten, ordinary road. Stelvio is the 3rd highest pass in the Alps (positioned at an astounding 2,757 m above sea level) and is an infinite maze of curves taking any traveler who dares to challenge the entirety of the track through 48 sharp hair pin turns. Approaching this pass from the northwest area is a beautiful ride that will take travelers through vast stretches of alpine forest and rapid roads that go on for several kilometers. Despite being dubbed one of the top 10 most dangerous roads on earth and one of busiest to travel - the Stelvio pass holds an intense and mystical appeal that continues to attract motorsports enthusiasts and thrill seekers alike to its roads.

The Stelvio Pass is one of the most famous roads and definitely a road you have to see in your life. However, it is not one of the best you could drive. I have been here twice and was impressed the first time. The road was actually the reason why I wanted to go into the Alpes as I have seen a Youtube Video of a Ferrari going up the pass. Now that I know many other roads I find the Stelvio Pass too busy, also the curves are very tight and you nearly have to stand before taking the turn. There are many other roads where driving is more fun. The view is still amazing tho and it is worth visiting it at least once.
