Stelvio on Saturday

I am planning to drive over the Stelvio pass this Saturday and drive back to Zurich via Lugano. Does anyone have an idea on the amount of traffic there, on a Saturday in summer?

Re: Stelvio on Saturday

I've only done it by motorcycle.

Stelvio - Lugano figure 5-6 hours on a fast motorcycle and that you pass all possible traffic, and you don't stop.

Stelvio-Bormio-Livigno-St.Moriitz-Chiavenna-Lugano is the best way.

Stelvio-Bormio-Sondrio-Lugano is the shortest way, but boring, and has much more traffic so perhaps not shorter time-wise with a car.

To Zurich, Stelvio-Bormio-Livigno-St.Moriitz-Chur-Zurich is the best way.

Thanks for your reaction.

I plan to do it by car but Zurich-Stelvio-Lugano-Zurich is then probably a bit too optimistic for a day trip.

Re: Stelvio on Saturday

I think Stelvio's a bit of a disappointment. I've driven there 3 times but only bothered to go up and down once ....

Plenty of good passes closer to Zurich worth exploring - just stay out of my way tomorrow
