"Driving is fun but gas..." Italy Transportation Tip by feline01

Italy Transportation: 349 reviews and 277 photos

Driving is fun but gas (petrol) is very expensive and tolls on the Autostrada are astronomical. Bring a debit card of credit card for refilling the gas tank because most gas stations are closed at night and even weekends in smaller towns but you can fill the tank yourself as long as you have a credit/debit card. Trains are a terrific way to get around but strikes still occur occasionally and you can find yourself kicked off a train suddenly because of a strike. Be flexible and just ask some locals what to do.
