Bergamo: St Mark Pass - Passo San Marco

The San Marco Pass is part of an ancient route built by end of 16th century to connect Lombardy with the Grisons area. This mountain pass, almost 2000 m above sea level, is reached by a good road, no longer used for goods transportation. It is very appreciated by bikers who can enjoy the fresh loneliness of the landscape just a couple of hours away from the crowded Milan area. Sometimes also "heroic" cyclists climb up there!
