Tips and guidelines for driving a motorhome in Italy
Basic driving rules in Italy
Driving is always on the right hand side of the road and priority is to the right.
You must have your national or international drivers license on you at all times.
In traffic circles, traffic moves in a anticlockwise direction.
The vehicle already in a traffic circle (approaching from the left) has the right-of-way.
All of the occupants of the vehicle must wear a seat-belt, in the front of the vehicle as well as at the back. Child car seats and booster seats must also be used when necessary.
Always overtake on the left and leave a good distance before merging back into your lane especially in front of trucks.
The use of the horn/hooter in Italy is reserved for signaling danger.
The speed limit for motorhomes is:
- 50 km/h in cities
- 80 km/h on most roads
- 80 km/h on highways
The legal blood-alcohol limit is less than 0.5 g/l
In the case of an accident, first call: 112
Using a cell phone while driving is prohibited.
Be aware that traffic signals differ from vertical to horizontal from one country to another. Pay attention and adjust your driving!
