I m not sure how it works to bring the car from Ireland to Italy. I know for sure you can go from UK to France, so you might need to go from Dublin to wales the england.

A few points:

1. www.viamichelin.com is an excellent tool for route-planning on the European mainland.

2. Triple-check that your insurance covers the car during your travels and make sure you carry the equipment required by law in any country you pass through e.g.

3. Book the Rosslare>Cherbourg ferry as soon as possible to be sure of getting the date and time you want.
