Tolls in Italy are charged on all vehicles using the paid road network in the country. Toll fees depend on the car class, the type of road, and the distance traveled. For some road sections, the price is fixed and does not depend on the distance traveled.

Toll network in Italy

The toll network in Italy covers about 6,000 kilometers and is managed by different toll operators.

There are three types of toll systems:

  • Closed: Toll systems with barriers at the entrance and exit of the paid section. The vehicles pay a toll depending on the kilometers traveled.
  • Open: These are fixed-price toll sections regardless of the distance traveled.
  • With free flow: These toll systems collect tolls without barriers.

You can calculate the number of toll charges in Italy by setting the start and end destination through the official website of the operator Autostrade per l’Italia, managing about 3000 km of toll network in Italy.
