from UK to Italy by car

Hello,
I plan to visit my family in Italy in late May/early June.
Can someone tell me whether I should be able to drive my car from UK to Italy, crossing France, Germany and Austria? will I need to carry some sort of self-certification? thanks.

Read this thread about the impossibility of moving through France. https://community.ricksteves.com/travel-forum/france/france-closed-to-tourists

Since the French border authorities will turn you away before you board the ferry or Eurotunnel it is unlikely that you will reach France, much less drive through it.

See also Kim’s recounting of her inability to reach family from Paris to Italy in another thread.

By the way, you have posted your question in the Day Tours forum. You might have more readership if you post it in a more general Forum. Since you are intending to go through multiple countries perhaps General Europe would be the better forum.

And now having reposted, you should delete this thread. It's confusing.

Good luck with your trip.
