Very nice pics Chris.

Did you take any pics of the N88 before it turns into an expressway?
Does it have some grade-separated junctions?

Interesting report, x-type. It's nice to see some pics from central Italy, I haven't been there for years; I always drive through that boring Padan plain. Btw, how come the traffic between Rome and Naples is so low?

I've driven the entire N88 from the A75 to the A72. It is mostly a fast road, it gets quite high (I drove above the clouds), but it has only moderate ascends and few tight curves. There are a lot of 2+1 sections, but few grade-separated junctions, but I have to remark there are only a few traffic lights or roundabouts. The road from Le Puy to St. Étienne is mostly a 4 lane highway with grade separated junctions, with a speed limit of 110.

restriction for trucks and holiday. although it was 15th August and i was sure there would be crowds. but not. you will see when i upload A3 through Napoli, also without problems. we had only increased traffic at A14 because restriction was not valid anymore, but also not major problems

A72 St. Étienne - Balbigny

This serie runs northbound on the A72 Autoroute, from the city of Saint Étienne towards the A89 near Balbigny. It's partially a tollroad, and runs north-south, but it's outside the standard holiday routes like the A6/A7 or A71/A75, so there's not much traffic. The route is about 60 kilometers long.

45 pics of the A72

i'll continue, at least with section Cassino - Sorrento for tonight.

the last photo (toll booths) is actually allready entrance to motorway next day in the morning. i'll also put few photos of Cassino. city looks interesting ebcause it has some old fortress at high hill over city seeable from city centre (and each part of the city). unfortunately, when we got situated in hotel and showered, the dark fell so there was no clue to go to fortress at night, and we left Cassino early in the morning. but there was a Ferragosto party in city, so we went to see it. they have weird way to put lights onto streets that i have seen only in Christmass time and morw weird - it looks like some peanut festival because tones of peanuts arebeing roasted there and sold in different shapes (roast in sugar, honey, cinnamon, pure...)

so, this is an entrance to city. hotels zone is between the city and motorway. straigh ahead you can see that hill with fortress. i'm so sorry that i haven't taken a photo of it from city centre.


"Christmas" lights


and peanuts


they roast them in those machines

1,50€ for A3 in urban zone


A3 in Napoli's urban zone is under reconstruction, it is being widened to 3+3. we had no jams (and i was sure we'll have them).
motorways has just cut the city




at motorway you can see a lot of people at scooters (50 ccm), even at old Vespas and they are crazy just as in the cities




some parts are finnished




and finally our exit - Castelmare di Stabia


i'm too tired now, Sorrentinian penninsula tommorow

Dutchmen everywhere

There are hardly places where you can't find Dutchmen in Europe.
Yeah, I have met a Dutchman in the nationalpark Paklenica, below the Vaganski peak (1750)... quite a hard climb from sea level...

There were only two of us... and some birds...

N82 / N7 Roanne

We head further north, where the N82/N7 is a Voie Expresse (expressway) through the city of Roanne, northwest of Lyon. The route heads right through the city and is about 25 km long.

21 pics of the N82/N7

N7 Moulins

The N7 is an expressway around the city of Moulins. For most of it's length, the N7 is an ordinary highway, but it has some Voie Expresse (expressway) sections in it. This is one of them and it's about 20km long.

16 pics of the N7

A77 Nevers - Montargis

The Autoroute de l'Arbre, the motorway of the trees. Not that it runs through heavily forested areas, but it's a theme-motorway, all rest areas are named after tree species and special trees are planted along the motorway's route. The journey runs from Nevers to Montargis, and gets nearly all of the A77 Autoroute. It's partially an open tollroad. The route is 135 kilometers long.

69 pics of the A77

We're getting closer to Paris. This one is also nice, apparently it's partly expressway. One distance sign was illogical though.
