I know a lot of people visit the Italian Lakes, so the route we have just taken might be of interest - especially to the skinflints like us:

Dunkerque to Tournai (Belgium) - stayed at the aire 50.60411N; 3.38115E
Tournai to Remich (Luxembourg) - stayed at the aire 49.53644N;6.35989E
Remich to Ettlingen (Germany) - stayed at the aire 48.93645N; 8.4173E
Ettlingen to Ulm (Germany) - stayed at the aire 48.40771N; 10.00936E
Ulm to Prutz (Austria) - stayed at the ACSI campsite (well, we needed a washing machine!)
Prutz to Trento (Italy) - stayed at the aire 46.06553N; 11.11405E
Trento to Lazise, on Lake Garda, where we are currently on a campsite from which we will visit Verona and the Opera :D

The total length of this toll-free route is about 850 miles and all the aires are free (details on www.campincar-infos.com ). The roads are all motorways or fast major roads and the two passes over the Alps (Fernpass and Resia) are a doddle. You could easily do it in less time but we weren't in a hurry!

As a matter of interest, we have an 85cm satellite dish and could pick up all the main tv channels until we hit Italy.

Happy travels.

PS - almost forgot - fill up with diesel in Luxembourg (1.17 euros) and again in Austria (1.32 euros). In Italy, diesel costs about the same or more as in the UK.

Thanks. This could be useful for me. We're in Italy now heading for Venice.

An update for those who care about such things - we lost television reception when we crossed from Austria to Italy but now that we have started heading west we have got it back again. That is, we had no tv on Lake Garda but we do have it on Lake Maggiore. Just watched Alex Dowsett take the lead in the Tour of Britain while lazing in the sun with a bottle of Chianti - me, that is, not Dowsett! :lol-053:
