The Passo dello Stelvio is the highest pass in Italy. It is situated in the Alps Retiche, to the north-west of the Montuoso group of the Ortles-Cevedale. Many consider it scenically the nicest of all the Alpine passes. It is possible to climb the Stelvio from two different sides; from Bormio and from Prato, both in Italy. However, it is also possible to reach the Stelvio from Switzerland, namely from St. Maria; see the Passo Umbrail (2501 m). The toughest, and to us most spectacular climbing is the one from Prato, with 48 hairpins, it is regarded as one of the finest continuous hairpin sectors in the Alps.

Rode this in October having cycled a few other climbs I was looking forward to my first Italian mountain , the road is never to hard but very rarely relents the hairpins can be seen in the distance which does not help motivation but once at the top the view is awe inspiring. One tip have one of the hot dogs they are amazing.
