Having just done that trip I agree.I’d suggest using the toll roads in Italy irrespective of cost as the free roads can be in terrible shape.
Toll costs in Italy are relatively low and cheaper than going to the chiropractor when you get home.
We went through the Mont Blanc tunnel and used their website to check if it and connecting roads were open (http://www.tunnelmb.net) after the Sat nav decided everything was shut and wanted to route us through Lausanne.Thanks all, we’ve been into Switzerland before and bought the vignette but we’ve also gone via the Mont Blanc tunnel, we seem to remember that being expensive.
Will use Italian tolls too.
It’s freezing in Colmar today!
How did you get away with just a vignette for Switzerland?We’ve gone via Switzerland, heading for Florence, but will probably stay over night here first. We remember paying 10 Swiss francs for 4 bread rolls once so we are well stocked up with French supplies!!
Thanks for taking the time to reply, I’ll update a pic of our route when next connected.
Vignette was 40 dip dabs
