In October, we drove over the mountain pass (aka Passo del Rombo in Italian), which was still open. Because of the dense fog it was a thrilling ride and unfortunately sometimes limited the view to just a few meters. Still it was a beautiful experience!

Passage from Austria to Italy. High in the mountains with spectacular views and nice works of art. A little expensive maybe: 16 euro for a car (single trip)

Both the Austrian and the Italian side provide wonderful vistas and sharp hairpin turns. The views from the top are also gorgeous so this is a great drive for looking at the stunning Alps.

Pay your fee at the top and enjoy the view as you drive over the mountain Smugglers Route. Narrow 2 lane twisty road on Italian side. Austrian side very good wide road. Bike or Convertible Paradise as you look into deep valleys below.

I enjoyed the drive (12km) and we stopped at several places through from Austria to Italy to take pictures of the view and enjoy the sound of the cowbells. We ended up arriving at the toll fairly late on in the afternoon (5pm), so didn't...More
