Info About Automobile Clubs in and outside of Italy

(LAST EDITED/UPDATED: 28 September 2010)

Here are some links for automobile clubs in and outside of Italy:

Broken links: Since November, 2005, I have written over 300+ blog entries with 1,000's of corresponding links/URLs for Moving2Italy2, covering a varied and wide range of topics. In the event if you come across a broken link or a non-functioning link/URL, please post a comment and report the non-functional link. I wish to thank you in advance for assisting me in the ongoing maintenance and the updating of this successful and informative blog.

Please note: I do NOT represent or endorse any of these links nor do I receive payment for listing them in my blog.

The reason that I listed automobile clubs outside of Itay is that if you are traveling by car and you needed roadside assistance whether inside or outside of Itay, you could contact one of the automobile clubs listed above. In addition, you can request maps for the specific region or country you are traveling in and ask questions at one of their respective offices. Many of these clubs have reciprocal agreements with one another.

Before traveling to Italy, you can usually get a map from your home country's automobile club in your own language. For example, the local AAA office in the USA, has maps for Italy and other countries. Depending on your level of membership, they are "free" or less expensive than a Michelin or an map printed in the country you are traveling to on your trip and either bought in a book store or ordered over the Internet.

One last thing about commercial or store bought maps. You will note that it usually mentions a scale. My rule of thumb is to look at a map of Italy as an overview of the whole country. Nice to have but it shows major highways and depending on the size of this type of map, can be cumbersome to carry around. Then, depending on your travels in Italy, select regional maps, e.g., North, Central or South or maps of specific Regions of Italy. Italy has 20 regions. Finally, there are city maps.

When my wife and I travel to Italy, depending on where we are traveling, we have an assortment of maps that we bought either in Italy or at a bookstore in the US. They are Regional maps, e.g., North, Central or South and maps of specific Regions of Italy. We take the Autostrada (toll roads) when we have to but travel on roads most tourist's are not aware of. We do not travel in a car to large cities but usually take a train and/or public transportation to get around. We will pickup "free" maps from the local tourist offices when we are traveling in a specific region or in town of some size.

That's it for Friday, 22 September 2006: venerdì, 22 settembre 2006.
