We returned to Italy the following year & did go to Lake Garda. This time it was the 2 youngest & one of Lewis’s friends that came with us.
We decided that we would again fly from Liverpool to Treviso with Ryanair, the car again was booked via Holidayautos. the drive to the campsite was all motorway & the 95 miles was easily undertaken in just over an hour & half.
We had yet again booked a 2 bed caravan with single bed & bunk bed for the boys & we had the double bedroom.
The campsite was fairly large with 1285 pitches on it but you didn’t get the impression you were packed in. The site had a very good range of pools to suite all as well as having direct access to the shores of Lake Garda. unfortunately the shore was a stoney one & it was not always easy to get a sun lounger at the poolside.
We had several days out which included a trip to the home of Ferrari at Marranello (about an hour and half away), Malcesine was about an hour away on the other side of the lake. Well worth the trip as you were able to get a cable car to the ski station to the top of Monte Baldo where you have fantastic views over Lake Garda. We also spent a day in Verona where we explored the back streets around the Roman Amphitheatre. We were able to visit Juliet’s balcony which was immortalised by the story of Romeo & Juliet.
