Passo Fedaia

Fedaia Pass is the Italian Job road

Passo Fedaia is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.061m (6,761ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary of Veneto and Trentino-Alto Adige regions of Italy. The pass was used as a location for the film Italian Job.

Set high in the Dolomiti Range, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called Strada Statale 641 del Passo Fedaia (SS641). The pass features countless turns and hairpin turns, and very steep sections, hitting a 15.8% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. The pass is 26km (16.15 miles) long, running west-east from Canazei to Rocca Pietore.

Tucked away in the northern part of the country, at the northern base of the Marmolada (the Queen of the Dolomites) the highest peak in the region and the Dolomiti, the pass has been featured in the Giro d’Italia race. It is one of the main legendary climbs in the Dolomites mountain region. The summit has some cable car ski stations, a small guesthouse and some souvenir shops. Access to the pass is typically open all year round, with the occasional closure in winters due to dangerous weather conditions. But even up to July may have an icy road in it.
At the summit, a gravel road climbs steeply with loose rocks and sloping banks to Passo Padon, a mountain peak at an elevation of 2.427m (7,962ft) asl. The average gradient is 17.05%, with some sections up to 25%.
