    Hi

    We went there in September 2007. Traveled from Lake Como to Bormio and all the way to Neuschwanstein in Germany in one day.

    If you are going in a couple of weeks then you probably are the wrong place as Stelvio doesn't open until June. There is far too much snow there before that to open the roads.

    Have a look at the Street Safari web site to get an idea for a route down from Calais. We drove with them in 2006, the roads are great, but will not be open this early in the year.
    have fun, drive safe.
