Passo Giau, Cortina d'Ampezzo

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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Cortina d'Ampezzo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Passo Giau and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • What you can live from passo Giau emotionally is something incomparable. The belvedere in 360° is unique in the panorama of the Dolomites; If you can stay on a sunny day becomes unforgettable. From here, a network of hiking trails of varying difficulty and suitable for all ages. If you want to then reach the hut Averau and after Nuovolu you can enjoy pure pleasure. If I imagine heaven ... I think so!
