HOT TIPS FOR SICILY TRIP BY CAR | СИЦИЛИЯ НА МАШИНЕ (в комментариях по-русски🇷🇺).
🇮🇹More posts about Sicily here #sicilywithwwanderer ⠀
🚗Book a car in advance. Quite often, rental agencies increase the class of the car to those customers who booked the car in advance. It happened with us. We booked a car 3 months before the trip.
🚦Learn the traffic code. Speeding in Italy is prohibited. However, locals repeatedly violate traffic rules as if the fines do not exist.
🛣️LIMITATIONS: 50 km/h - in cities, 90 - outside the city, 110 - on the highway and 130 on the autostrada. If a road camera catches your violation, a car rental company will charge the penalty amount from your card.
🅿️Plan the parking. Check with your hotel or the owners of your holiday stay whether there is a free parking space nearby. Moving around the city, you will see that the parking spaces are lined with 3 colors: White - free parking, blue - paid parking, yellow - parking for local residents only.
🗺️Mark on the map in advance the places to visit and install some maps apps that work offline. I use Google maps.
❗Sicily's traffic specifics:
🚩Sicilians often honk a horn. For example, at the crossroads or when outpacing, drawing attention to themselves in order to avoid an accident.
🚩The pavement in Sicily are very narrow, or there are none at all so pedestrians, as well as cats and dogs are forced to walk on the roadway. Be careful!
🚩The main traffic rule is to respect all other road users.
