Col Visentin

Col Visentin is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.764m (5,787ft) above the sea level, located in the Province of Treviso, in the region of Veneto, in the northeast of the Italian peninsula. The road to the summit is definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo. There is little room for error on this road.

The road to the summit is scary. It’s gravel, full of hairpins and in many places it’s bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails. At the summit there are some antennas and a mountain refuge.
This road has humbled many egos. It’s not for the sissies and shouldn’t be attempted by novice drivers. It’s one of the highest peaks of Trevisan prealps. The peak offers panoramic views: the highest peaks of the Dolomites (north) and Venice on the Adriatic coast (south). It’s incredibly disorienting to look over the edge, or even just to see the valleys a couple thousand feet below you.
