Not going, but been last time in the early 90s.
Some pass roads with sunshine and 25 degre when you start off, minus and snow on the top. Ha ha
Great fun.
May changed untill now, but I loved it.
From Germany/ Austria to South Italy and back.
Breakfast in Venice.

Althought last time I did it was in a Nissan patrol 2,8gr swb.
Followed by a pajero 2800 swb and this one struggled.

There is one eperticular pass street I liked but I forgot the name. May remember when I have a look at the maps.
Very tight bends, very steep, sheeps on the roads, gravel too, loads of choices to use the old dirt ack instead the bendy roads. But again, in over 10 years it may changed allready.

Sorry for the short answer, hopefully this will gain momentum closer to the time.

Look at the pics from last years trip.viewtopic.php?f=172&t=16078&hilit=Alps

Calais to Grenoble.Then over the mountains to Monaco. I live in Germany so people can nav home or travel north into Austria and Germany.

7-10 days, awesome weather, amazing views.
