  • Step challenging with many hairpin bends right across the border. The road is surrounded by a wonderful nature and arrived at the top, from a lookout, you can enjoy an incomparable view. It's really nice to be able to drive these streets maintained to perfection and it is always a pleasure to return

  • The area around the Maloja Pass with beautiful views. Especially, a stroll along the Lakes, a visit to the village of Sils and Vicosoprano, as well as a detour worth to Soglio (2015 elected the most beautiful village of Switzerland).

  • In winter we ascended with my mother and my brothers with an orange beetle in religious silence for fear of being half way, to spend some days of vacation on the slopes of the Engadine. Climb it in summer is one not enchanted by breathtaking hairpin after coming back almost perfect.
