Passo di Verva is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.301m (7,549ft) above sea level, next to the Italian and Swiss border.
The road over the pass links the towns of Arnoga and Eita, and is located in the Livigno Range, a mountain range in the Alps of eastern Switzerland and northern Italy, around the Italian village of Livigno. It is considered to be part of the Central Eastern Alps.
The road can be driven only by bike or 4x4 cars, and includes rocky formations, hard slopes, and the surface is graved till the summit. It’s a real challenging road and a true test of your vehicle and your stamina because the road abounds in twists and turns with wheels sometimes hanging above the precipice. The 2300m-high Passo di Verva is well known to many Transalp bikers as the important crossing between Val Viola and the Valtellina, and it's totally impassable during the winter months.
