    Hi Sorry to be late in answering your post.  We have been to Italy a few times.  Have a look at my website 
    www.joysofeuropeacaravanning.co.uk   you might find some useful info.  We have been to southern Italy with an 8 metre, twin axle,  caravan and never had a problem.  I can give you a route if you like to email me with your address to dvphillips14@hotmail.com  I have already done one with campsites en route with map for someone going to Garda from Rotterdam.in a MHome.
    It seems a long way to go for just 8 nights it will take 2 night halts to get to Garda or Venice area's.and 2 coming back at least.
    Any questions please ask will be pleased to help.
    Cheers DianneT

    Hi mattandkirsty we have visited Italy many times and have stopped near to Sorrento plus on Lake Braciano to visit Rome.  The last year we were there we went right down to the heel of Italy to the Bari area to visit Arberobello to visit the Trulli Houses. You will find most of the Campsites we use are in the ACSI Camping Card Scheme .  Are you going before the end of June?  Any more help please ask will be pleased to help. Routes are also on my website.
    More details are on my website here the link in my signature below is not working at the mo.

    Info for Western Austria 2017.
    Next year on April 24th 2017 the Arlberg Tunnel in the West of Austria will be closed  to all traffic, night and day till the 2nd of October 2017.  This is due to major work to get the Tunnel up to date.  Some work was completed in 2015 when the Tunnel was closed for a similar period.
    As this Tunnel is the major route from the Tyrol to the Voralburg and then into Germany and the Bodensee it will be inconvenient for Travellers.  ASFING will allow Cars towing Caravans over the Arlberg Pass during the closure of Tunnel.  This pass is very steep in parts and after travelling it in June 2015 with our large caravan would not attempt it again.  It is a very steep and twisty route from St Anton to the top with no laybys till near the top.  It was very busy in 2015 with lorry's and buses and it is a normal two way road.  
    ASFINAG the authority in charge of Austrian Roads and Tunnels, who also collect the Vignette Monies which is solely used for the purpose, does give an alternative route which I have put the link for this here.   htpp://www.joysofeuropeancaravanning.co.uk/latestnewsinfo.htm
    I hope this will help anyone who contemplates visiting the wonderful Country of Austria this coming year.  There is loads more information on Austria with Site reviews and Places to visit.  Any questions just ask will be pleased to help.
