I initially had been weary of road tripping through Italy instead of arriving by train–what with crazy Italian roads and us not having been behind the wheel in months… but I forgot how much I enjoyed the freedom of a car: playing the radio with the windows down, stopping wherever we wanted to take a photo and making our own itinerary.
I’ll still be the Swiss rail system’s #1 fan, but I’m looking forward to planning more European road trips in the future. I’ve rounded up a few items I’d love to have on my next road trip and divided them into two categories: “high road” (expensive) and “low road” (affordable). Enjoy!
We used a map, some directions from Google and locals to get around the winding Piedmont country roads. We got a little lost, but never in an argument–so I’m calling the trip a success! Here’s hoping you are exploring some new territory this weekend…but for now, a few links:
