A1 to A12 vs. A14: Which is the easier drive from Sulmona to Mondovi?

Jump to last reply

On my trip to Italy next month, I will unfortunately have to spend one day (a weekday) doing a long, solo drive from Sulmona, in Abruzzo, to Mondovi, in Piemonte. I'm hoping that the experienced Italy travelers here on Fodors can help me choose the least painful route for this long drive. I drove a rental car in Italy last year, but only Venice-Dolomites-Trento. This will be my first time on the autostrada, so I'd like to minimize the stress as much as possible.

Google maps and ViaMichelin each show two alternate routes. Basically, I can either take the A1 to the A12, passing Rome, Florence, and Genoa, or I can take the A14, passing Pescara, Bologna, and Piacenza, then turning south near Torino. Both mapping sites show the A1/A12 route as the quicker route by about 15 minutes, but I'm guessing those time estimates assume no traffic problems.

I've seen references on this and/or other forums to the A12 as a challenging route for the unitiated, due in part to the abundance of tunnels, but I notice that the A14 from Pescara to Ancona also has its share of tunnels. I'm also concerned about potential traffic jams, since this is going to be a long day of driving even without any major slowdowns.

Any insights from travelers who have done part or all of either of these driving routes would be greatly appreciated.

Grazie!
