driving from Benevento to Avellino

In mid September, we want to drive from Benevento to Avellino.

Has anyone driven on highway 88? If so, what kind of road is it?

What is the highest elevation? Guard rails? Just want to be sure it is a safe road before we drive on it. Thank you

I have not driven this road but my experience is that all roads in Italy, even in mountainous areas, are of adequate width and entirely safe provided that you drive at a speed that is suitable for the road.

Whether any road is dangerous depends more on the driver than on the road.

If you have the patience, it appears you can follow the road's entire course using the Streetmaps facility in GoogleMaps.... or just pick out the bits that look hairiest!

The Strade Statale are usually quite good, and that one's no exception - our roadmap suggests it's at the highest south of Altavilla Irpina, but that stretch seems fine?

If you go to www.viamichelin.com and enter Benevento to Avellino, it suggests a route with only one steep descent of 0.9 km. If you choose Economical, it suggests SS 88 as one possibility, with a great many bends and one steep descent of 1.5 km.
