In Italy, Cagliari (155,000 inh.) is the biggest city without any motorway connection. There isn't any motorway in Sardinia.

In mainland Italy the biggest city without any motorway connection in Latina, 120,000 inh.

Perugia does not have motorways, but is bigger than Latina, almost 170,000.

EDIT: Latina may be the largest without rail connections. But it has an expressway to Rome and there are plans to upgrade it into a motorway.

yes, but the station is outside the city itself, about 8-9 km far from the center, "into the fields"...

then, Taranto (over 20k larger than Perugia) is served by A14, but actually this motorway is quite far from the city (it starts/stops near Massafra, about 15 km away, and there isn't a real expressway link at present)...

There is an expressway connecting Taranto with Groattaglie and the rest of Salento.

yes, but it goes in east direction and doesn't link Taranto itself with A14...I don't know if there is an "indirect" link via ss106...

and talking about Perugia, is linked with A1 by mentioned RA06 (north) and by ss3bis-E45 (south) expressways, even though it takes about 60 and 90 km, but for us A1 is useful only for long distances outside the region...almost all the main cities in Umbria are linked by a good free expressway network...I think Latina is in a very worse situation in comparison...

In Switzerland, the biggest cities that are not connected by a motorway, are all located in Upper Valais (German-speaking part), on a continuous strip of several towns very close to each others, making it almost a metropolitan area:

- Leuk: population 12'252
- Westlich Raron: pop. 10'864
- Visp: pop. 28'244
- Brig: pop. 25'929
- Östlich Raron: pop. 10'864
- Goms: pop. 4569
TOTAL: 92'712 inhabitants

Furthermore, all these cities, except Östlich Raron and Goms, are on the international road of the Simplon Pass.
Curiously, the motorway stops since 20 years on the French-speaking border of Valais, as if Upper Valais didn't want to get connected too fast with them .

In Spain it's difficult to answer, as in the islands there are big cities without motorway access, like Arrecife in the island of Lanzarote (56,880), but this is because there are no motorways in that island, as they are not really necessary. Among the islands, only the big ones, i.e. Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Mallorca have motorways, athough there are some short expressway-like roads in Ibiza, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

In mainland Spain, the biggest city without motorway access is perhaps Lloret de Mar (40,837). Although there are plans to extend C-32 from Blanes to Lloret de Mar, it will have a single carriageway. The biggest provincial capital without motorway access (and the only one) is Soria (40,147), but works on the last section of A-15 are in an advanced stage and the remaining 12 km to link it with A2 (and thus with the rest of the Spanish network) will open in the next months.

In fact, Fuerteventura has an autovía here.

Iași - 320,888: none (just some very distant plans)
Cluj-Napoca - 317,953: A3 (passes few km from the city and serves as a south-west bypass)
Timișoara - 302,609: none (A1 u/c - will open at the end of the year)
Galați - 298,861: none (not even some concrete plans)
Brașov - 284,596: none (A3 is planned)
Ploiești - 232,527: none (A3 is u/c and might open this year)
Brăila - 216,292: none (not even some concrete plans)

After 3 years, an update (also updated number for population from the 2011 census and order for top 20 cities):

1. Bucharest - 1.883,425: A1, A2, A3.
2. Cluj- Napoca - 324,57: A3 (passes few km from the city and serves as a south-west bypass); a new section is U/C.
3. Timisoara - 319,279: A1; a new section is U/C.
4. Iași - 290,422: none; plans are still distant.
5. Constanta - 283,872: A2, A4 - which is a half-ring around the city - the other half is the Black Sea.
6. Craiova - 269,506: none; plans, but nothing concrete.
7. Brasov - 253,200: none; lots of discussion, nothing real.
8. Galati - 249,432: none; no chance to get any for the next 10 years.
9. Ploiesti - 209,945: A3
10. Oradea - 196,367: none; A3 is U/C but with no constructor now, since Bechtel left; it is expected to be signed again this year.
11. Braila - 180,30: none; just as Galati, no chance in the near future.
12. Arad - 159,074: A1; a 10km near section is expected to be finished this summer ending the working sites around this city.
13: Pitesti - 155,383: A1
14. Sibiu - 147,24: A1
15. Bacau - 144,307: none; a long tender is expected to be finished for the A7 section which will by-pass the city; probably will be signed this year.
16. Targu- Mures - 134,290: none; tender was held for the A3 section near, but no results yet.
17. Baia Mare - 123,738: none; no chance in the near future.
18. Buzau - 115,494: none; plans, but only that.
19. Botosani - 106,847: none; really, NO chance!
20. Satu Mare - 102,411: none; probably will get acces from Hungary side via a future M49

Those are all cities that are over 100k; 12 of them don't have acces, but for 3 (Oradea, Targu-Mures, Bacau) there are some chances to have acces in the next 2-3 years.

In the Czech Republic it ought to be Liberec and Olomouc (both with just above 100,000 pop - right now I think Liberec beat Olomouc with a few hundreds). Both however have roads that for the untrained eye look just like motorways, especially Olomouc. But don't be fooled, they are officially expressways.

The biggest town in the Czech Republic without motorways and without expressways built almost to motorway standard should be Hradec Kralové (about 95,000 pop). The D11 is supposed to go all the way, but since there have been serious problems buying the land necessary to complete the road, it still ends a bit away from the town.

I think none of them could count. Czech expressways have motorway standard, and Hradec&Liberec are only few kilometers away. So we should consider České Budějovice (93 253 citizens).
