Gavia Pass, Bormio

(4.6/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
High up in the Italian Alps lies Gavia Pass, the mountain range's tenth-highest paved road. This steep and challenging road is not for everyone, but adventure-seekers are rewarded with dramatic views of the Sondrio and Brescia regions. Because the road is quite narrow, it is best tackled by motorbike or bicycle. At an average incline of 16%, count on a hard and long climb. At the summit, reward yourself at the restaurant and take in the vast views. Put Gavia Pass into our Bormio vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bormio.

  • A rugged path, primordial, leads to a pass that evokes faraway age causes the desire to climb the steep slopes, towards the alpine peaks.

  • Beautiful panorama during the climb. shame about the road surface not up to par.

  • Almost mandatory to do this 1 time in my life. Although not the best (in my opinion), everything that surrounds it and the roads that lead us up there are epic
