ITALIA CURVES 2021

Finally back to almost normal. 2021 brought us back to Italy! We did a revival of our first tour from 2015, however with some variations to keep it interesting.

Day 0 started already with some complications, as the road across Timmelsjoch was blocked by a landslide. We did a detour across Kühtai, Brennerpass and Jaufenpass before reaching Sulden, our first over night stop. We had dinner at the "Yak&Yeti", which is a very traditional restaurant owned by famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner. (http://www.messner-mountain-museum.it/en/)

Day 1 had lots of highlights, starting with Stilfserjoch (2757 meters) in the morning, followed by Gaviapass (26231 meters), the second highest pass in Italy. The journey continues via Passo Croce Domino (1892 meters), Lago di Idro, Lago di Valvestino until we reached Lago di Garda. With the ferry across the lake to our second overnight stay in San Zeno di Montagna high above the lake. 

 

On day 2 we were heading further east towards Bassano del Grappa. Montebaldo mountain road (with a stop over at Madonna della Corona), Passo Pia della Fugazze (1156 meters),  Asiago, Bassano del Grappe to Longa where our hotel was located.

From Longa we started our tour towards Valstagna and from there to Fosa, which is a magnificent road with endless hairpin curves. Passo Brocon (1616 meter), Passo Gobbera (988 meters), Passo di Rolle (1984 meter) brought us close to the UNESCO world heritage of the "Dolomites". We drove Passo di Pordoi (2239 meters), Passo di Sella (2218 meters), Passo Gardena (2121 meters), Passo Valparola (2168 meters), Passo Falzarego (2105 meters), Passo di Giau (2236 meters) and finally via Passo Tre Croci (1804 meters) to our final destination. 

Sunday, the final day. Straight along Lago di Misurina, towards Austria. We skipped Staller Sattel, but were heading directly towards Lienz and climbed up Grossglockner, the most famous high alpine road in Austria. From there further north via Zell am See, Saalfelden, Lofer, Erpfendorf, Aschau and back home.
