Being a small country, you will be surprised that traveling times take a bit longer; this is mostly experienced in the mountainous areas. With this in mind, taking the shortest way is not advisable mostly in the south where most of the highest mountains are located. While traveling in winter, you should remember that most passes are closed; you can always use the car trains instead. Although expensive they are time saving and you don’t have the trouble of going through a difficult pass. This kind of transport has begun being used more often.
