Thanks for the quick reply to the query about car travel in Switzerland.
I had read that permits were required, but also thought some permit was
required in Italy. Some of the guide books said it could be applied for
thru AAA. I certainly would not risk going on their hwy system without
the permit, after the warning, but wondered about the road conditions in
October. Maybe we should just skip that part this trip and stay in Italy
as we plan to go on south into Tuscany. It was so tempting to be so close
and not try to see a bit of that spectacular area.
Any other advise? EMcIntosh- Texas
