Toll collection is as much a tradition in Italy as it is in the neighbouring Southern European countries. Here too, numerous rules and options apply, but as a fundamental principle: All motor vehicles are subject to tolls.
However, there's good news: Dual carriageways, usually marked with blue signs, are toll-free roads. A toll is levied primarily on motorways, the "autostrade" (identifiable by their green signs).
Examples of exceptions to the general toll obligation are, on the mainland, the section between Salerno and Reggio Calabria (A 3) near Naples and a portion of the motorways on Sicily.
As in other countries, it's not only roads for which tolls are collected. Portions of routes such as tunnels and bridges are often subject to tolls. Certain cities also impose "city congestion charges".
Italian operating companies collect usage fees through various toll systems. You should inform yourself about these systems, and the routes to which they apply, before starting your journey - for it is not always possible to settle the toll on arrival!
