Stelvio Pass is the dream of all racing cyclist! From Gomagoi 48 hairpin bends lead you up to Stelvio Pass (2760 m), the highest pass in Italy and the second highest pass in the Alps.

2000 years ago the Romans built the only Imperial national road across the Alps, the “Via Claudia Augusta”. It runs from Altinum near Venice or Ostiglia on the Po River over the Resia Pass and the Fern Pass to Donauswörth in Bavaria. Today the stretch is an 80 km long cycling route that enables you to explore Val Venosta in the spring and in summer by rail and bicycle. Whether you are a cycling expert or cycle for pleasure - enjoy this environmentally friendly, gentle discovery of nature and culture.
: The bicycle hires along the Val Venosta cycle path make it possible to return bicycles at any hire outlet with the “Südtirol Rad” sign. This allows you to shorten or extend your planned cycle tour at any time.
