France/Italy: The Fréjus and Mont-Blanc tunnels
Would you like to cross the Alps through the Fréjus and Mont-Blanc tunnels?
All passenger vehicles can pass through both tunnels.
As for goods vehicles, classes 3, 4, B, C and MD, F, D and E are accepted. Euro pollution class 0-1-2-3 & 4 goods vehicles are excluded.
The Fréjus road tunnel, which connects France and Italy, was opened in 1980 and is 12.87 km long. This link between Savoie and Piedmont is now one of the main road routes through the Northern Alps, and consists of a two-lane tube.
The Mont-Blanc tunnel connects Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in Haute-Savoie, France, with Courmayeur in the Aosta valley, Italy. When it was opened in 1965, it was the longest road tunnel in the world, measuring 11.6 km (approx. 12 minutes). It shortened the journey between Chamonix and Aosta by 60 km, and above all eliminated the obstacle of the winter closure of the Alpine passes, facilitating travel between France and Italy.
