Have a nice trip!

Don't forget to make a lot of roadpics Most of Italy is still relatively unknown territory, roadpic-wise.

^ No wonder, it's a winding 4-lane motorway without hard shoulders and a lot of traffic (between Rosenheim and Salzburg).

I like A8. It's one of my favorites.

Your guess is wrong.
First day around 1400 km. I hope no larger jams will occur on A3 south of Salerno.

And don't expect wealth of roadpics, there will be some, but not many. I'm going to vacation, after all.

Nice. Long distance driving is the best.

The longest I have driven in one day was 1250 kilometers from near Le Puy in France to Zwolle, half of it being non-motorways. It took me 14 hours.

Personally, I like 800 - 900 km drives best.

My longest in a day was 1,550 km (to Milan, Genova, Portofino, Pisa etc., and back). It was an overdose IMO.

Once I felt asleep behind the wheel and then went off-road in USA after boring driving of 700 miles with tempomat. Luckily no one was hurt.

Actually I took some of them, I know very well quality of some motorways down there. I looked at ANAS site, looks like I'm going to run into numerous construction sites in southern Italy. Hopefully no major delays will occur but I'm not very optimistic, especially around Salermo.

6,5 hours to go ...
See you at end of July.
