In 2006 this climb was twinned with the Alpe d'Huez, the legendary climb of the Tour de France. The two in fact share similar features, although Panarotta is slightly longer. It is a stern test for the most experienced cycling enthusiasts who gage their condition on these slopes by fighting against the stopwatch. It is a very popular climb on hot summer days, when the forest’s leafy branches provide shade to the road.

Turn-by-turn directions

It starts from the junction in the hamlet of Assizzi at the exit from Pergine, on the former Valsugana national road. The road goes straight uphill and for the first 5 kilometres continues to rise without interruption. You get a chance to catch your breath only when you reach the small village of Vignola, then the climb presses on, alternating steeper slopes (around 8%) with slighter ones, until you reach Compet at an altitude of more than 1300 metres above sea level. From here there are still 5 challenging kilometres left that unfold on a fairly wide and even road. When you reach the top, you get off the bike and notice a metal signpost that highlights the similarities between the Panarotta and Alpe d'Huez. Panarotta is a favourite summer destination for cyclists, but also for skiers and snow-shoe lovers in winter. The local cuisine typical of this place is quite popular among tourists.

Panarotta also preserves traces of the Great War. The defence front of the Austro-Hungarian Empire once spanned this line, a belt of barracks and trenches recovered thanks to careful and intelligent renovation works.
