One of the most beautiful driving scenes in the world can be found in Italy, the Stelvio Pass.  This 40+ turn mountain road takes you up all the way to the top with all the crazy zig-zag road.  My friends (girls and guys) love cars and driving so this was definitely a driving adventure of a lifetime for us.  However, I do not recommend this road for everyone it is very dangerous (especially the turns and narrowness).

Stelvio Pass is considered one of the highest paved mountain road in the Eastern Alps.  It is also a top choice for ‘greatest driving roads in the world’.

I was quite surprise that I didn’t get any motion sickness from the drive, maybe I was more excited (and nervous) that I didn’t get sick.  The view on the top of the mountain was divine, I can see the entire pass.  And like every mountain top, it was cold (luckily, I brought my jacket).
