Anyone driven the Stelvio Pass

Friend of mine is doing it in the next few weeks but wondered from which direction to tackle it?

Either from Switzerland into Italy or he's going to Lake Como so could take it from Italy towards Switzerland.

Which direction is best?

Hi!

I drove the Stelvio Pass on my last trip to Europe. I only drove on it from Switzerland to Italy, i.e Downhill. We drove it at night time, and the turns were seriously tight!! I'd say uphill is the safer option, cos u find yourself carrying a lot of speed on the way down. In the first few bends I found myself underestimating the sheer angle and sharpness of the road!

IF your mate has the time, do it both ways, seeing as the border is still quite far after it.
It is undoubtably great fun! Just watch out for some Italian nutters racing up n down it, trying to beat there best time!

Hope it helps!

TSL
