In general, Italy’s roads always seem to have that air of being in a hurry, with lots of traffic, horns blasting (Italians really do seem to have one hand on the horn at all times, even though the use is prohibited in built-up areas) and passionate hand-gestures. Yes, driving in Italy really is like the films. That said, if you’re in no hurry, what does it matter? It’s all part of the experience! To avoid on-the-spot fines, make sure that you have all the necessary documents and equipment on board.
