Translessinia (Strada Provinciale 14) is a very funny dirt-road experience in the Province of Verona in the Italian region Veneto, running entirely over 1.500m above the sea level.
It’s an old military road located within the Lessini Mountains range, running among cows, marmots and wide green spaces. The highest elevation of the road is 1.717m (5,633ft) above the sea level. Along the road there are some mountain huts or shelters where you can rest. Best views during sunset.
The road is mostly gravel (with some asphalted parts), pretty wide with some very steep sections. It’s 13.6 km (8,45 miles) long located within the Parco Naturale Regionale della Lessinia. Open to traffic throughout the year, may be closed for short periods in winter when the weather is bad. Over the last few years the road has been improved, there are few holes and it is pleasantly passable.
