  • On our way back from the Lago Maggiore we took the route across the Splugen Pass. It was a scenic drive with some snow at the highest point (2.114 m) where Italy kisses Switzerland.  more »
  • All I can say is WAOW! What a stunning road and scenery. The views are breathtaking and you want to stop every minute to take pictures. A must to for all bikers 👍  more »
  • Beautiful pass as has been described many times here. However, I do not recommend attempting to drive this pass after an all-night flight from the US. It can be a bit stressful without the proper amount of sleep😀!
