Passo Giau, Cortina d'Ampezzo
(4.7/5 based on 480+ 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.
