Passo dello Stelvio (Stelvio Pass) is a mountain pass in northern Italy bordering Switzerland at an elevation of 2,757 m (9,045 ft) above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, 13 m (43 ft) below France’s Col de l’Iseran (2,770 meters / 9,088 feet).
It is the highest finish of any Grand Tour. The Giro d’Italia often crosses the Passo dello Stelvio. It was crossed by the Giro for the first time in 1953 when Fausto Coppi beat Hugo Koblet.
