This is a paved road and as such won't represent any major technical difficulty, although it is a good way up and may challenge many aerobically. This segment is part of the official route for the Gotthardpass Section II
, but you won't miss much if you take the Funicolare Piotta-Ritom (Cogwheel Railway) to save most of the climbing. For this option, take the Gotthardpass Section II - Lift Option
from the center of Airolo.
