In October, we drove over the mountain pass (aka Passo del Rombo in Italian), which was still open. Because of the dense fog it was a thrilling ride and unfortunately sometimes limited the view to just a few meters. Still it was a beautiful experience!

Passage from Austria to Italy. High in the mountains with spectacular views and nice works of art. A little expensive maybe: 16 euro for a car (single trip)

Both the Austrian and the Italian side provide wonderful vistas and sharp hairpin turns. The views from the top are also gorgeous so this is a great drive for looking at the stunning Alps.
