On arrival in Milan, transfer to the motorhome depot to collect your vehicle. This afternoon, enjoy a short drive to Lake Garda, the largest lake in Italy. You will be captivated from the very first time you see this popular and beautiful destination that offers both relaxation as well as numerous activities, including walks and cycling routes to explore Roman ruins, medieval castles, caves and stunning waterfalls. Your campsite for the next five nights is located near the historic village of Moniga and is an excellent base from which to explore the pretty towns dotted around the lake.

A very pleasant way to explore Lake Garda is by boat and you can use various ferry services to travel from one place to another. A boat trip to the largest island on the lake, Isola del Garda is also recommended, taking in the beautiful gardens and stunning architecture of the Venetian, neo-Gothic style. You may also like to visit the magnificent city of Verona, teeming with Roman history and architecture, or follow the troubled tale of Romeo and Juliet as you meander through majestic alleyways and bustling piazzas. Gaze at the legendary Arena di Verona, one of the best-preserved amphitheatres in Italy, which is still used for open-air opera concerts today.

Venice is only a stone’s throw away but we suggest you enjoy a stop in Padua enroute. This Italian city is older than Rome and despite its location off the beaten track, it features twice on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list. It not only has an incredibly rich historical and artistic heritage but is home to fabulous café’s, cake shops, patisseries and gelaterias. Enjoy a five-night stay near the unique city of Venice, with your campsite providing a fabulous base to explore the city and its surrounding islands. Venice is small and compact, perfect for exploring by foot. Be sure to visit the vast St Mark’s square, wonder at the beautiful Doges’ Palace (Palazzo Ducale) and marvel at the grand Basilica di San Marco with its impressive Campanile bell tower. Ride a gondola, vaporetto or ferry up and down the Grand Canal and take a selfie on the Ponte di Rialto, Venice’s most popular bridge. Another must is a day trip to the nearby lagoon islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello, known for their brightly coloured houses, picturesque scenery and handicrafts.

If you appreciate architecture and love good Italian food, you might like to stop at the little city of Bologna, the gastronomic capital of Italy today. Then continue south to the small republic of San Marino, one of the world’s smallest countries. Situated on a picturesque hillside, your campsite for the next four nights offers spectacular views over the Adriatic Sea. Enjoy time to explore the medieval town of San Marino with its narrow-cobbled streets. Admire the impressive Basilica di San Marino and its prominent towers and ride the cable car to enjoy spectacular views of the Adriatic Coast. You may also like to enjoy a local excursion to the medieval town of Mondaino to visit the ancient Mill of Porta di Sotto where the famous 'Formaggio di Fossa' or 'pit cheese' is made.
