Thank you.
AFAIK it's not possible. There was a discussion a while back, it seems there are ways to rent it, but I don't really know.

I don't get why everybody got mad about the conditions of the old A3 Salerno-Reggio Calabria, while nobody ever said anything about equally bad old mountain motorways in the North, like parts of A6, A7, or A10 (that, unlikely of A2 - former A3, are tolled too).

Because they're in the North, people do not complain as much.

SP430 (ss18Var) near Cannetiello (Salerno)

The railroad bridge corresponds to the main line connecting Salerno with Calabria.




Same SP430 now near Poderia, still going southbound. I found several yellow signs saying Giunto. What did they mean? You can see several of them here.




When I reached Policastro Bussentino I found out that I was taking the wrong road, the SS18, when I needed to get the SS17Var in order to get to the A2.




The A2 near Cartolano, when the highway starts to border the Tirrenian coast.




Intersection of SS182 & SS18 at Vibo Valentia. Which way to Capo Vaticano? You get lost with sooo many signs

"Giunto" means "expansion joint".

Those signs are there to notify the snow ploughs to be careful when removing snow from that road, as they might get their front blades stuck in the space between the two spans of the bridge.

That explains those sticks at bridges in Spain too. They don't have a sign, but the function appears to be similar.

Giunto means "joint"; see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expansion_joint
Those signs tell drivers to pay attention to possible bumps resulting from the presence of the joints; the yellow background indicates a temporary situation associated with construction works. Note that the concept of "construction works" can also apply to identified damages and anomalies without people actually working there at the moment.

Excuse me, but Cartolano is not a town, it's only a little river (that you pass through after Falerna's junction)! You were near Falerna, and by its junction you can go to tyrrenian cities like Amantea, Nocera or Gizzeria, without going along SS585 "Fondo Valle del Noce" if you come from Northern Italy!

My copilot's notes stated Cartolano, but she copied it from the GPS, so she might be wrong of course

When we left Capo Vaticano, after 30 minutes of contemplating the beautiful scenery, we went northboud via the SP22 towards Tropea. This brick bridge is used by the railway line going to Reggio Calabria.




Ok, we reached Tropea but I was told to be very careful with the ZTL so we had to look for a parking spot without entering it.






Tropea was a beautiful place, and we really loved it so much. After staying for a couple of days we went eastbound, this time for Matera in Basilicata. Our first stop was at another Autogrill on the A2 at Tarsia Est. I even found out that there were traffic cameras hidden on that footbridge






We continued our way, this time through the SS283 and SS534 towards the Ionian coast, where we reached one of Italy's most complicated and dangerous (at least that's what I read before leaving) the SS106. I did not find the road that troublesome although there were lots of trucks which make overpassing very complicated. However, it had very nice scenery too and the ride was enjoyable.




Finally, we took the SP3 and SS7 towards Matera. It was a long ride but happy to reach the place.

Yes, but it was a Sunday and the following day the cameras would have made a feast out of me! Honestly, it's a pain in the back those darn ZTLs...

Finally, when we left Matera, we took the SS7 southbound, which was also decorated with huge trees on each side.

SS106 is not a problem where you were, it is more on the South, on the Calabrian coast.

@kokomo

Nice trip, we made it quite similar in July from Bari to San Giovanni in Fiore, where from we made some wonderful central calabrian trips. All roads were in relatively good condition (and we used entirely every kind of road), except those around Sila national park which wideness is ok, but to much `buca` ruined the experience. All the time you must be very concentrated on them. But, after all, conclusion is that Calabria has very good road network, especially considering all negative voices about the region and A2 is free of charge.

5years,

I drove 2400 km in two weeks and let me tell you that even on the poorer zones of Italy roads had all of them signs and pavement was fairly acceptable. There were patches but no potholes at all. The only things that I did not find amusing were: speed cameras everywhere, changing speed limits frequent (not unusual to drop from 90 to 50 kmh) and the difficulty of finding parking places. Plus, GPS used to direct me through the most direct routes which involved, especially in Puglia, unpaved roads.

But I loved driving a lot
