How good are the roads in Italy?

The road network in Italy has been scored 4.4 for its quality (1 lowest, 7 highest). This puts it at 49 in the world out of 137 other countries. Roads will vary significantly within the country’s different regions, so use scores as a rough guide or reference for comparison.

What is the drink driving limit in Italy?

The BAC limit is 0.05% in Italy - this applies to both visitors and residents. Your BAC level is a measurement of the percentage of alcohol in your bloodstream. This information is used to determine how inebriated an individual is. Driving a vehicle with a BAC higher than 0.05% is against the law in Italy and you will be deemed as ‘driving under the influence’. If you are younger than 18, which is the legal drinking age in Italy, then you may face strict penalties if you are caught drink-driving. Keep in mind that it is never a good idea to drink-drive no matter how old you are.

How much does petrol cost in Italy?

Last week, the price of petrol in Italy was $3.12 per litre on average. This is subject to change based the city you visit, time of year, and the country’s current economy. If you aren’t set on hiring a car in Italy, then consider Egypt. Petrol prices there are some of the cheapest in the world at $0.43 per litre as of last week.
