Recommendation: Italian Lakes and Mountains (with Venice and Florence) is a first-rate motorist's guide to the Italian lake region and the Dolomites, with the Venice and Florence chapters being an attractive bonus.

There are the mountains between Bologna and Florence; you can take the new A1 motorway stretch and see only the inside of the old part of the A1, called Panoramica, and see less tunnels and more skyhigh viaducts.
