True, on the map it looks simple. Reality is that things are
not indicated very well, there is plenty of  opportunity to
take wrong exits etc, and if you do that it can take some time
and distance before you discover the error. I've done it twice,
and each time at some point I was convinced of having taken
some wrong road because the signs that confirm you are right
just aren't there. In both cases I arrived home with a feeling
of having been extremely lucky. Same if in Parma you take the
exit Parma West - to get from there to the center defies all
logic. After two years is stilll confuses me...

The other way round is even worse, if you miss the exit to
the airport you're in for a detour of 100 km or so. The 
Milano circular is also big fun in the rush hour.



Io lo dico sempre: l'Italia è troppo stretta e lunga.
