Stelvio Pass Road

The Ortles Region’s Stelvio Pass Road

The Highest Mountain Pass in Italy

The Stelvio Pass Road twists and turns in tight serpentines and more than 48 hairpin bends before reaching Stelvio Pass at a lofty height of 2,757 meters.
It connects Spondigna/Spondinig in Venosta Valley with Bormio in Lombardy and is the highest mountain pass in Italy. Its planning and construction – which was begun in 1820 under Kaiser Franz Joseph and completed in 1926 with only six years’ construction – is regarded as a pioneering achievement in the area of mountain road building.

The road is 49km long and has an incline of between 7 and 15%. On the South Tyrolean side, it counts 48 bends and on the Veltliner side 34. The winding course in front of the breath-taking view of the Stelvio National Park also attracts many biking enthusiasts and cyclists.
