This is the main transit route from Livigno to Bormio. It is made up of two small passes with a boarder stop from the Livigno tax free area to Italy at the top of on top of the Passo di Foscgino.
 
Leaving Livigno, take the SS301 marked Bormio- this will take you up the mountain, under all the skiing chairlifts. Very nice road surface and most of the road is wide and flowing as this is the main route in for most of the skiers in the winter. Over a mini summit and back down into another high alpine valley and then back up again to the Passo di Foscgino. Take it easy towards the top as there can be police hanging around looking for people overloaded with cheap booze and fags form Livigno. Through the boarder and down about 3 km there is a stunning viewpoint, check out the photo with this review.
 
OK, we have now had the best part of the ride, the rest of the route down to Bormio is pretty mixed, and the traffic only gets thicker the further you go towards Bormio. For a transit road, you can’t really fault this route as sets you up perfectly for the Stelvio pass before you actually enter Bormio, or you can continue down into Bormio itself which is actually quite a nice ski village.

Editor review

Absolutely stunning transit road. It opens up and gets better the further you get from Bormio.
