Create an itinerary including Gavia Pass
High up in the Italian Alps lies Gavia Pass, the mountain range's tenth-highest paved road. This steep and challenging road is not for everyone, but adventure-seekers are rewarded with dramatic views of the Sondrio and Brescia regions. Because the road is quite narrow, it is best tackled by motorbike or bicycle. At an average incline of 16%, count on a hard and long climb. At the summit, reward yourself at the restaurant and take in the vast views. Plan to see Gavia Pass and other attractions that appeal to you using our Valfurva holiday planner.
