    A fantastic descent with - in comparison to Stelvio - little traffic. You can let it fly right or you drive a little slower and enjoy the really beautiful view that opens up in front of you. Important tip from personal experience: Even in summer it can be damn cold up in the mountains. Take a windbreaker and best of all a rain jacket and long gloves and a buff. Then the descent becomes a pleasure. ;)

    Fantastic departure, hardly any traffic! 60 minutes roller coaster feeling pure!

    Definitely recommendable - great route and much less traffic than on the Stelvio Pass. If you are on time, you may well have the road to yourself, and then you are so early on the Stelvio Pass that you can really enjoy the descent to Prad or Bormio. The note regarding warm clothing is absolutely correct, who goes to more than 2000 meters altitude is also in midsummer well advised to think of the significantly lower temperature there.
