Easy read maps Italy.


Recommended Posts

From Annecy to Italy assuming you don't want expensive tunnels you have 2 main choices.

1. Petit St Bernard pass from Bourg St Maurice to Aosta valley.

2. Col du Mont Cenis at the top of the Maurienne valley to Suse and then Turin.

We did 1 a month ago, good generally wide road both sides. As it is more direct I would go for this.

2 I haven't done for a long time but don't remember it as difficult.

Either will be fine.

Mont Cenis is easy - did it 5 weeks ago the other way. Annecy, Albertville, Aigbelle, St Jean de Maurienne, Modane then Mont Cenis (about 105 miles) into Italy then Susa then Turin then on up towards Milan then Como. (about 155 miles)


In France use the N roads & D roads (can use the autoroutes but they are not cheap!) but in Italy it's got to be the Autostrada (the S roads are really slow)


Even Elephants can do Mont Cenis! (Hannibal)
