The Italian road network is subdivided into several categories: express highways (autostrade), national, provincial and municipal roads (strade statali, strade provinciali and strade comunali, respectively). The general road network was mainly developed thanks to the support of concessionary companies and was financed by tolls, which means that if you travel with a rental car in Italy you will have to pay to drive on the main highways.

Consult the Traffic Regulations in Italy if you decide to travel with a vehicle on the Italian road network.

The main axis runs north-south from Chiasso on the Swiss border through Milan, Bologna, Florence and Rome to the south of Reggio di Calabria at the tip of the peninsula.

Another major route heads south from the Brenner Pass along the Adriatic coast to Bari and Taranto.

A dense network of motorways serves the north, linking Turin with Milan, Venice and Trieste on an east-west axis and with Bologna and Genoa.

Other east-west routes connect Rome with Pescara via the Apennines and connect Naples with Bari.

Commercial road transport has increased in recent years; Italy has one of the five largest truck fleets in Europe.

If during your stay in Italy you are going to travel with a rental car, you should keep in mind the traffic and congestion, because it is one of the main problems facing the urban streets of Italy. Many urban centers are based on medieval street plans and cannot cope with the levels of traffic and pollution generated by a population with one of the highest rates of car ownership in Western Europe.

Several cities, including Rome and Milan, have introduced measures to reduce the number of cars entering city centers at rush hour. In some Italian cities cars are completely prohibited from driving through historic centers.


The proportion of cargo that passes through Italian airports, the majority is processed at Malpensa airport, near Milan, or at Leonardo da Vinci airport (in Fiumicino), near Rome.

These airports, almost equally, also handle the majority of passenger traffic, although Milan Linate Airport and Venice Marco Polo Airport also have large passenger numbers.

Many of the other regional airports such as: Turin, Genoa, Verona, Bologna, Rimini, Pisa, Naples, Brindisi, Palermo, Catania, Alghero and Cagliari, are used for domestic flights, except during the tourist season, when they can absorb some of the traffic. vacation from other European destinations.

In most Italian airports you will find offices with the main car rental companies, the multinationals are located in the arrivals hall, which guarantees the convenience of picking up the vehicle within the airport facilities.


Although the rail network is well distributed throughout the Italian peninsula, there are important qualitative differences between north and south. The north enjoys more frequent services, faster trains, and more double-track lines than the south.

Compared to other European networks, Italian trains carry little cargo but many passengers. 80% of the railway network was controlled by the state through Ferrovie dello Stato (‘State Railways’).

The main rail networks serve Milan, Genoa and Turin in the north.

Rail links through the Po Valley to Venice; to Bari, along the Adriatic coast.

Along the Tyrrhenian coast, through Naples, to Reggio di Calabria.

From Rome to the Adriatic cities of Ancona and Pescara.

There are also good rail networks on the islands of Sicily and Sardinia.

Italian railways are connected to the rest of Europe through a series of mountain routes connecting Turin to Fréjus in France, Milan to Switzerland via the Simplon Tunnel, Verona to Austria and Germany via the Brenner Pass, and Venice to the Eastern Europe via Tarvisio.

At the end of the 20th century, the routes were extended, extended and modernized, including the addition of high-speed lines and computerized reservation and control systems.  The railway network extends about (16,000 km).

The Italian coast is dotted with many ports, and the vast majority of imports and exports arrive and leave the country by sea, especially thanks to its 7,400 km of coastline.

The main dry cargo ports are: Venice, Cagliari, Civitavecchia, Gioia Tauro and Piombino, while those that mainly handle petroleum products are Genoa, Augusta, Trieste, Bari and Savona. Naples and Livorno handle both types of cargo. Genoa is the largest and most important Italian port, but it has great difficulties to expand due to the mountains that surround it.
