  • Even if you pay for admission, it really deserves to visit Europe's highest scenic alpine road. Spectacular landscape, often shrouded in scenic white clouds, beautiful waterfalls that descend from the slopes resembling the bride's veils, shelters and restaurants all over the path where you can stop wanting to eat something, well tunnels illuminated, then on top a grandiose view embellished by the presence of a beautifully blue lake... It was very cold when we got to the top and the wind disturbed the cheeks and dried the throats of all the tourists, including us. But it was worth the pen to walk even on the peaks to discover the village from a different angle... We took many pictures, we could not resist so much natural beauty, wild that asked to be immortalized. I recommend this beautiful street...

  • It really is a unique experience. The road is perfect, and those of us who like the high mountain, we don't usually find such comfortable roads. The landscape is incomparable. Many picnic spots, all with fantastic views.
