Be sure to activate all Java tricks on that page I had NoScript blocking the trick, so it was not so funny

I've driven 500 kilometers through Italia today My first driving experience in Italy. I've been to Italy before, but I wasn't driving myself back then.

I took A26 all the way to Alessandria, then A21 to Tortona and then A7 to Milano. Then I used the Tangenziale Ovest and A8 back to Gravellona Toce, and the A26/SS33 across the Sempione (Simplon) back to Brig.

The A26 was a pleasant surprise at low traffic and 2x3 lanes, but A7 was loaded with trucks. There was an accident near Pavia with a car completely totaled. There was some kind of rack lying between the right and center lane on the Tangenziale Ovest, people could barely avoid it.

Why didn't you descend to Genova on the A26 to then take A7 back north? You wouldn't pay any extra toll and those tunnels near Genova... not to miss

I've also told you before: spare € 52 and take a round-trip near the Alpine tunnels. A5 and A32 are roads NOT to miss either

Way much better the A7 SOUTHwards! Crazy windy road! Speed limit 80, and you won't feel it as a restriction

For the same price, he could have made this 8-loop: http://goo.gl/maps/Ym3m
A7 down, A26 up

You now have clinched ~400 km of Italian Autostrade. I have clinched 993.6 km, and Spinoza nearly 4000. But, if you had driven all the way down to Genoa, we would had a bit of autostrade clinched together.

I tought you already drove on Italian motorways before, although just 1.4 mi.

PS: next week I will go (and drive) for the first time in CZ, so wish me luck

I'm going to Genoa in a couple weeks for my pal's wedding. Bologna-Florence-Lucca-Genoa with A1-A11-A12, then coming back thru A7 till Tortona and then A21 to Brescia (picking up my gal), then A4 till Verona, A22 to Modena and A1 to Bologna. Almost 300km of never-clinched-before highways

I am making my own clinched hws map in Gmaps.
I have some doubts: should I count both directions or just one? And how should I count when the two directions have sensibly different lenghts?

I mean, the A7 Serravalle Scrivia - Genova Ovest is 49,1 km long, while Genova Ovest - Serravalle Scrivia is 44,7.
Other case: I clinched the A1 between Piacenza and Parma going south, but never going north.

I'm confused...

Well, the website consider an highway clinched even if you drove it just in a direction.

But if you're doing it on your own, you can do whatever you please...

There's a thread where you can show your clinched highways and roads, but I don't know where. I have clinched around 4000 kilometers of Spanish autopistas.
