Our motorhome tour – a summary or our Italian job

Here is a summary of our motorhome tour. If you click on the blue links, you will be directed to our blog page about that item.

Day 1 – Yorkshire to Folkestone – Calais – Mons (Belgium) and overnight stop at the motorway service area.

Day 2 – Mons – Charleroi – Arlon – Luxembourg – Metz – Nancy – Epinal – Cernay – Mulhouse – Basel (Switzerland) and an overnight stop at Camping Sursee.

Day 3 – Onwards, passing Lucerne, over the St Gotthard Pass, Chiasso, Monza, Bergamo, Brescia and Lake Garda to stop at Camping Baia Verde. Alas, Baia Verde was too busy, too noisy and had lots of flies. Consequently, we checked out 15 minutes after checking in! We chose to stay at Camping Il Faro instead! Five nights at Camping Il Faro

On then to Camping Piantelle for another five nights.

Day 13 – an airport drop and then onto Lake Maggiore and Camping Parisi

Day 14 – to Camping Attermenzen, Randa, Switzerland, via the Simplon Pass

Day 15 – via Lake Geneva and Besancon to Camping La Tuilerie – amazing – see pics!

Day 16 – Hard work for the Multijet, 430 miles or so to Dunkerque.

Day 17 – to Dover and home.
