Passo Giau, Cortina d'Ampezzo

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Passo Giau is one of the most scenic passes of the Venetian Dolomites. The road begins at Colle Santa Lucia and continues uphill through sparse forests for approximately 10 km (6.2 mi) until the summit. On a clear day, the summit offers a view over the Cortina D'Ampezzo valley and the peaks of the Dolomites. Reward yourself with a hot or cold drink at the inviting cafe at the summit. Pick up a map of all of the area's marked trails at the local tourism office.

  • The legendary passo Giau is a unique place which offers an exceptional panorama on the surrounding mountain ranges and on UN Vecchio. From the top you can do several very nice walks. Meta must for cycling enthusiasts.

  • we had the chance to pass on a snowy day. the scenery was breathtaking. a must see for all nature lovers. 
  • Usually visiting the Dolomites in summer passo Giau is a must because you can have a fantastic 360-degree view of the Dolomites. This past weekend we wanted to watch the winter landscape both day and night, the effect was very nice and impressive, thanks to a clear sky truly feel is to be one step away from the starry sky, is an experience not to be missed.
