The car is undoubtedly a good idea for those who want to reach Milan from Rome. However, some care must be taken – even more so when driving in another country. Rome and Milan are 587 kilometers apart, meaning that the driver must have some experience on the road. 

The Italian roads are very good and well signposted. In the case of this route, it is necessary to take the A1 Highway, known as Autostrada del Sole, the longest in the country. The advantage of traveling by car is getting to know some very charming towns along the way. However, renting a car can greatly increase the cost of your trip.
