My last video from Italy: Diramazione A8/A26 in northern Italy. Views on the Alps.

Nice! I didn't know Monte Rosa was so well visible. I've only driven there once, but in the other direction.

Yes it was a great view. I could even clearly see Monte Rosa and Gran Paradiso all the way from the Alessandria region, now those are the foothills of the Appennines. I've read it is even possible to see Monte Rosa from the Ligurian Sea if the sky is clear.

On a clear day you can see the Alps from Parma on the A1, but then you do not look towards the Monte Rosa region but rather towards the Alps behind Brescia and Bergamo. Particularly the descent of the A15 towards Parma is great on such days. It's the upside of the endless plain on a clear day.

Distance-wise, you should be able to see Monte Rosa from the Ligurian Sea too, but the mountains close to the coast will often form an object in your sight towards Monte Rosa. But without any doubt, there will be places where you can see Monte Rosa on a clear day.

Actually people generally don't think Alps are part of Milan and vicinity landscape: from my home in Settimo Milanese (a suburb NW of proper Milan) I can clearly see Monte Rosa dominating on the background from my balcony.

Many times unfortunately pollution hide the mountains

Do you have details on how it will be operated? Will it have a website where you will login and pay? Will they have "vignettes" for foreign cars (I don't think so) instead of toll collection?

I do appreciate it may sound weird...it's called "re-naturalization". By means of artificials tunnels a "motorway-effected" area can be sent back a few centuries in time. Word!

Low-grade pics. Views of the 1970 era Autogrill restaurants. Some of them, down east, have been recently renovated in "true 70's stule as seen from the 21st century"...

I guess: A4 Torino-Milano-Venezia...

Service area's name should be Sebino Nord/Sud (among Bergamo and Brescia).

1st pic direction Milan
2nd pic direction Venice

View by the windows of the "Ciao" restaurant!

Apologies, I retyped the message and A4 went astray...

Been there twice. Very convenient as a stop over northern Italy and very good pizzas.
Only maybe larger parking space wouldn't hurt.

It's congested all the time, 24/7 and it only get worse at night, with all the trucks cluttering every square meter...

as I said, it's old.

Needs renovation.
