Passo del Picco

Set high in the central Alps, the road to the pass is not easy. It’s very irregular, asphalted and very steep with some stretches around 20%. Speed limit to 20 km/h. Trucks and semi trucks are forbidden. It’s closed in winters.

The road was an old military track and features very nice views. Exercise extreme caution when passing on-coming traffic, over-taking and around corners. This stretch of road should not be attempted by novice drivers. Starting at Doverio, the road to the summit is 8.8 km (5.46 miles) long.
