    We're looking at entering Italy from Geneva by non-motorway roads and over the Simplon Pass. I see there is a rail tunnel. Has anyone on here used it and was it worth it? Or did you cross by road and if so, how was it?
    Thanks

    Current cost for Simplon Tunnel for a camper up to 3.5t is 13 Euro one way.

    Not clear if this includes passengers, but it appears so.

    Just think what it might be in this country!
