Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
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 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%.
