This wonderful riding day calls for an early start since there are 4 major mountain passes that await us. After some warm up over the Passo di Mendola we get a chance to rest and stroll through the medieval town of Glurns and enjoy some Italian cappuccino. We will need that rest because now we have to conquer the third highest pass in the Alps – the mother road of Passo Stelvio, with 48 switchbacks. At 2757 meters, this is the highest road that one can drive in all of Italy.
The National park “Stilfser Joch” offers breathtaking views and the road is on every motorcyclist’s “to do list”. Two more serious passes before the roads finally swing out towards our final destination – the lovely village of Gravedona on Lago di Como. This beautiful lake is home to many celebrities, including George Clooney.
We end this wonderful day with delicious Italian food on the lake shore.
