If you’re from New Jersey and used to driving circles, Italy is a cake walk. Now, if only the Italians knew how to drive them!? There are roundabouts everywhere.
But most importantly, your phone is your best friend. Use maps or google maps to guide you and have a usb cable to plug into your rental car and keep your phone charged. Additionally, always carry a charged power bank with you.
There’s no speed limit on the autostrada . We were doing 150 km ph(approximately 93 mph) and were being passed.
But rental cars are regulated not to surpass 150 km ph.
The roads are in great condition and the drivers are courteous.
Oh, be sure to get a telepass(ez pass)..definitely a time saver and all charges are sent directly to your bill at the car rental company.
Highly recommend you take collision and damage insurance from the rental company. Most U.S. insurance companies do not cover damages and collision but be sure to check with your insurance company prior to your departure.
Also, obtain an international drivers license . AAA will issue it but you must do so in person as a picture is necessary.
