Sixt Car Hire at Pisa Airport

If you are thinking of hiring a car from Sixt at Pisa Airport remember that 75% of Italy is mountainous and some of the autostradas have long tunnels and bridges. Below is some information on the road network system in Italy.

Motorway signs are green with a white text. Roads are numbered from 1: so A1 is the Autostrada 1.

The motorway toll system (pedaggio) charges for each journey. Normally a ticket is taken at the start of the journey and paid for when you leave the motorway. There is a fixed charge per kilometre (rate varying depending on the vehicle type).

The Viacard toll pass-card offers reduced toll rates and allows you to pass quickly through designated priority lanes at the toll stations. This card is sold at banks, tobacconists, service stations and tollbooths. It looks like a telephone card and you pay a fixed amount which allows for a certain distance to be covered with money deducted each time the card is swiped at a toll gate.

The Telepass is a subscriber toll pass service when the subscriber is given a sensor to attach to their vehicle. When the car passes through a tollgate the amount due is logged and automatically debited from your account. Using a Telepass means you do not have to stop at the toll as the car just has to slow down so that a reading can be taken and the barrier will open.

Italian motorways have emergency telephones located approximately every two kilometres. These connect directly to breakdown service supplied by the ACI (Automobile Club d'Italia). The Autostrada.it website provides information about the length, cost and facilities available for each journey, as well as details on traffic conditions and estimated journey times. 

Main road signs are white with black text, except for strada statali and strada provinciali, which are blue with white text.

  • Strade Statali: are often dual carriageways which are not tolled and usually lead to cities or town centres; they have the prefix SS
  • Strada Provinciali: are regional roads which are (sometimes) numbered with the prefix SP
  • Strada Bianca: can be white roads of varying quality which are not tarred and connect rural areas.
