Col du Petit-Saint-Bernard, Seez

(5/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
The Little St Bernard Pass is a mountain pass in the Alps on the France–Italy border. Its saddle is at 2188 metres above sea level. It is located between Savoie, France, and Aosta Valley, Italy, to the south of the Mont Blanc Massif, exactly on the main alpine watershed. There is also a Great St. Bernard Pass and a San Bernardino Pass.The road across this pass is usually open from May to October. For current road status see Etat des principaux cols routiers francais.At the summit, the road cuts through a stone circle measuring 72 m in diameter. A standing stone once stood in the middle. From coin finds this is believed to date from the Iron Age, possibly being a ceremonial site of the Tarentaisian culture . The stone circle was partly restored in the 19th century.

  • This road of departure from bourg saint maurice to the pass to arrive in Italy is a must worthy of the film of the Lord of the rings landscapes based on the period or you are gone stop you to admire the landscape, otherwise it would be ruined

  • The ascent from Séez is sometimes a bit "daunting" but it offers impressive views. The pass by him even is fairly ordinary but is on the border of France-Italy

  • A real challenge for the cyclists but amazing views on top and a great run down on the other side. There is one restaurant for a coffee, really nice home made cakes and lunch food.  more »
