Travel Guide to Colletto Campanino
Colletto Campanino is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.142m (7,027ft) above the sea level, located in the Ligurian Alps, a mountain range on the border between France and Italy. There’s a dirt gravel track to reach the summit.
The road features some steep sections, without market central lines, is very narrow, barely wide enough for 2 cars at the same time and it has not protections or guardrails. The surface of the road is gravel and sand, and chains or snow tyres can be required anytime. This stretch of road should not be attempted by novice drivers.
The unpaved sections of the road can be impassable when wet. In any case, driving 4WD is recommended due to uneven surface. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle and can easily get muddy if it rains making it challenging to get through.
