The Stelvio Pass is one of a kind. It is the highest road pass of the Italian Alps climbing to 2758 meters above sea level. The road is bordering between Italy and Switzerland. The pass is located north of Bormio, an ancient Roman spa resort today resort of winter sports and mountaineering. The Route du Col connects the Italian province of Bolzano to Valtellina in a sequence of the most spectacular passages. The road has also been unanimous among fans of the British show “Top Gear”, since it has been voted for a long time as the best road in the world.
