The longest distances I drove in one day were:
  1. Folsom, CA to Arlington, OR - 1010 km
  2. Folsom, CA to Salt Lake City, UT - 1030 km
  3. Folsom, CA to Los Angeles, CA (via Death Valley) - 1135 km

First two trips I drove virtually without stops (benzine and rest stops only), but the third one took me from 06:00 to 23:30 (still the same day).

Vancouver BC -> Anaheim, California: ~2100 km (~1300 miles)

Okay, so it wasn't just by myself. The summer between high school and university, I went on a road trip with 3 of my friends to Southern California. We started in Vancouver at 2pm Sunday afternoon, stopped only for food/bathroom/gas/wait at the border, and got to Anaheim at 2pm Monday afternoon. We took I-5, and I was driving the stretch through Southern Oregon and Northern California.

We switched in the middle of nowhere in NorCal, I stepped out the car and looked up at the sky, and I'd never seen such a starry sky in my life before. It was *beautiful*.

We took our time on the way back to Vancouver. We stopped by the Bay Area for a day, and we slept in the car at some reststop in Oregon the night after (I think it was in Medford).

Mississauga, Ontario to Lakeland, Florida, around 2100 miles or so. Come to think of it though, we would usually stop for a hotel around SC - South Carolina. So without any major stops probably Mississauga, Ontario to somewhere in South Carolina?

With co-driver and stops (fuel etc.) surely Milan-Berlin, Milan-Prague, Milan-Kracow, Milan-Naples... all between a range of 1300 and 800 kms

Driving alone I can't say: I often go in Cote-d'Azur in France where I got a home, Milan-Cannes about 350 kms, but I surely made longer travels... recently I went near Geneva in Switzerland: about 400 kms from Milan I think

Plenty of Italians (expecially from Milan and Turin) got a home in Cote-d'Azur: probably there are more Italians house owners then French ones overthere; since '90s there was a boom of house sales to Italians (expecially from Lombardy and Piedmont) that once bought vacancy houses in Liguria
Prices are often lower than Liguria ones and (IMHO) places are better

More details, eh?

First of all, I go to college about 400 mi (640 km) away from where I grew up, so I'm pretty used to long-distance driving. For my longest non-stop trip, I started at about noon or so (after having worked all morning). Didn't get a lot of sleep the night before, so I was chugging 5-hour energy drinks the whole way. While I was in Oklahoma and Kansas (517 mi, 832 km), I maintained a speed of 80 mph (130 km/h) because of course, the speed limit was 70 (112) . In Colorado, up until I got to Denver, I went at about 85 mph (137 km/h), since the speed limit jumped up to 75 (120). The entire trip lasted about 11 hours or so. I stopped a couple of times for bathroom breaks, to get dinner, but none of these lasted longer than 10 minutes or so. Took me 2 1/2 tanks of diesel to get up there, but that was because unbeknown to me, there was a loose part of my car causing a lot of drag. Next time I made the trip to Denver, it only took me 1 3/4 tanks.

Tomorrow, I am going to drive 1300 km (Pullman, WA to Folsom, CA). Google says it will take me 14 hours, so I better start at 06:00. This time my drive will be through the deserts of Idaho, Oregon and Nevada
