Swiss Roads

All roads lead to Rome. My journey there will take me through Switzerland and Italy. Today was the first day on Swiss roads and I want to show you how different they may be. As everything in Switzerland, the roads are excellent. When they are country lanes they invite the traveler to the villages. When they wind around the highest mountains they are narrow but safe. Today as we drove on those they reminded us of the intestines, especially when viewed on the GPS πŸ™‚ When they lead through very long tunnels dug through the bellies of the mountains they are still highways on which you can travel with the speed of 100 km/hr. So, buckle your seat belts and lets go!

  1. Ooo, rolling my way, are you? True about all roads to Roma, I’ve seen a map recently that proves it. πŸ™‚ I’m curious now: will you take the central highway to Roma or cross the Tuscany via our sweet little slow roads? I’m in Capalbio, honk!

    1. This is such a sweet surprise that you, one of my blogging friends, are somewhere close on my way πŸ™‚ At this moment I am staying at B&B in Vezzano Ligure on the outskirts of La Spezia. Which road will we take? That is a good question! I have to look at the map. Any suggestions which road I should take?

      1. πŸ˜€ It depends on how much time you have and how fast you wish to go. Highways I would not recommend, they are costly and you see nothing. But they are fast. I have not travelled north of Florence at all and between Florence and Siena only briefly. My ‘territory’ begins south of Siena. For sure I’d recommend Val d’Orcia around Pienza, the cypress hill valley. It’s not towards Rome as such though, a bit of a detour. It’s lovely to drive by the coast too, the sea colour at Piombino is beyond belief. Your must-hit-spots include Terme Saturnia, Pitigliano, Sovana and “Il giardino dei tarocchi”, Niki de Saint Phalle’s Tarot Garden. And then you’re where I’m at. πŸ™‚ However, one needs time for all this. It’s cool that you’ve got nothing fixed yet, I like that. πŸ™‚
