    The Colle dell'Agnello (Col d'Agnel in French) is one of the highest alpine passes and marks the border between France and Italy at a height of 2748 m asl. The climb (long -more than 20 km- and very demanding in the final stretch) is a must for many cycling enthusiasts, also because it has been the destination of various stages of the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France. It can be reached starting from Molines-en-Queyras on the French side (with 6 switchbacks) or from Pontechianale on the Italian side (the hardest route with 26 switchbacks).
    It is closed from October to May.

    The Col d'Agnel connects the Italian Varaita Valley with the French Guiltal. At 2744 m, it is the third highest paved pass in the Alps after the Col de l'Iseran and the Stelvio Pass.

    Superb pass With breathtaking landscapes.
    The day I went up, the pass was reserved for the Cyclist ... too cool, no car or motorbike and full of cycling enthusiasts.
    I don't know if this is exceptional or regular. Ask about....

    The highest cross-border carriageway in the Alps. A few meters lower than the more famous Iseran and Stelvio, but certainly the most difficult especially on the Italian side where it is better not to get too tired in the last 10 km which have an average gradient of 10%.
