Yes It's a great drive over the Saint Gotthard pass in fine weather. We drove back over it in 2009. It's a slow climb but easy road up to the top isn't it

Here's some pictures we took -brings back memories !

Ha! I have an identical shot from outside that cafe / rest area down towards Bellinzona, and isn't the cobbled surface of that stretch of the old road amazing, with its perfect line of red granite cobbles down the centre!

DSL2 Yikes somewhat of a contrast!

Stunning in the sunshine though, what a place can't wait to get back there.

What a difference a couple of weeks make

I recently spent a couple of weeks in the Italian lakes. I took the Russell Route via Luxembourg, Metz, Epinal, Basel, then intended taking the Gottard Tunnel to Lugano.

However, when I got to the Gottard tunnel, it turns out they had opened the pass just a few days earlier so I went up over the top instead (2,100m, but an easy enough drive with only a handful of tight curves).

At the top it was simply glorious. The air temperature was up in the late 20's but there was still quite a bit of snow around, and the Gottard Lakes were still frozen.

It was one of the most magical places I have stayed (and free, obviously).

Spent a couple of weeks touring the Italian lakes, then took more or less the same route back, aiming for the Gottard pass for an overnight.

What a difference!! Cold, miserable, wet, most of the snow gone.

Still a magical place, but somehow not quite as nice!
