The Stelvio Pass is different from the other dangerous roads on this list. The danger here is that you might get distracted by the beautiful views of the mountains. This road goes for 46.8 km and has 48 sharp turns called hairpin bends. The Stelvio Pass is one of the highest paved mountain passes in the Eastern Alps. In 2008, it was even chosen as the best road to drive on by Top Gear. To keep everyone safe, there are barriers made of cement to stop cars, bikes, and cyclists from falling off the road.
