The Autostrada A9 or Autostrada dei Laghi (“Motorway of the Lakes”) is a motorway in northern Italy. Built in 1924, it was the first motorway in Italy and in the World (competing with the AVUS of Berlin).
It is part of the Milano - Laghi set of expressways, the oldest expressway in the world. The other Milano - Laghi expressways are A8 (connecting Milan to Varese on the Lake of Varese) and the connection between Gallarate and Sesto Calende on the Lake Maggiore (now part of the Gallarate - Gattico connection).
There is a toll section near Como.
