- Italians are confident and somewhat aggressive drivers, so don't expect people to slow down for you or let you out. When pulling out on a motorway, as soon as you see a gap, go for it decisively and don’t dither.
- Don’t always rely on your Sat Nav when going off the beaten track. Some roads might not be as complete or as drivable as they appear digitally! It’s worth investing in a Touring Club Italiano map of the region you’re heading to. The maps are made in Italy and give excellent presentation of the terrain, scenic routes and places of interest, and are relied on by locals and tourists alike.
- Check the Autostrade per l’Italia website for toll charges, to plan your journeys, and for news and web cams to check for any traffic hold-ups.
