Gavia Pass, Bormio

4.6
#2 of 7 in Historic Sites in Province of Sondrio
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.

    ... If steps from Bormio and go up with the car ok. Beautiful panorama. If the pass go to ponte di Legno with the machine, from panic. An emotion with adrenaline that is difficult to forget. The narrow road that hardly pass 2 cars. Banned for camper and vans, would remain blocked. With bikes and motorbikes instead is not to be missed. To try

    I got in the bike on this step up from wood deck and down to Bormio. Great for landscape, difficulties and specific situations (such as a gallery in 6-8% climb a few hundred meters, cornering and without illumination!). absolutely recommended for bike lovers. get in the car I think it is agreeable. Maybe not great.

    The road is very narrow and winding advise against driving but in motion is a vara pleasure nothing to envy to the Austrians.
