Motorway toll Italy - information about toll collection, toll tunnels

Motorway charges in Italy are collected in the form of tolls, which can be paid in cash, by payment or fuel card, directly at the toll gates. Tolls are collected not only for cars and trucks, but also for motorcycles. Tolls are also levied for the passage of some tunnels. On the Pedemontana Lombarda motorway north of Milan, a free flow system is used for the collection of motorway charges and after its use tolls have to be paid additionally. The Telepass on-board unit and Viacard prepaid cards are available for regular motorway users to facilitate payment. In the event that the driver manages to leave the toll highway without payment at the toll gate, the toll should be additionally paid at one of the toll gates or via the Internet.
