Bordering Slovenia and Austria, Friuli-Venezia Giulia is best known for white wine, the Dolomites, and to us, Passo della Forcella (World #25) and Monte Zoncolan (World #90). Zoncolan is a fan favorite and has been crossed by the Giro d'Italia 7 times since 2003. Passo della Forcella is the hardest climb in the Dolomites and has never been included in the Giro due to its steepness, narrow road, and precarious ledges.
