Hi all,
We're in an Aire just outside Nice tonight having travelled through France and on our way to Ancona for a ferry to Greece on the 22nd. Our rough itinery is San Remo, Finale Ligure, Rapallo, La Spezia, Lucca, Pisa, Florence,Ancona. We've not been this way before so if anyone can suggest any must see places or must travel roads or alternatives to our plans it would be much appreciated. By the way we were going to stop in Antibes tonight at the Aire outside the Marineland complex. The charge was 1 per hour, minimum 10hrs plus 3 for water. 27 for an overnight!!! We declined.

When we planned for italy we were under the impression sostas were like Aires big mistake they can be very expensive we found the ACSI book our best friend over there , a few were reasonable but ten euros with almost no facilities against 15 euros for a full site was a no brainier but we only stayed three of our planned five weeks and went back to France,

We'll be in Greece for 6weeks or so, there's a good chance we'll bump into each other.

Very true, we've paid 18,10,7.50 and tonight in Levanto 18 on Sostas and they don't compare well to French aires. Unfortunately there aren't too many ACSI campsites on our route, there's a black hole between Firenze and Ancona.

Thanks for the tips. I rarely use camper contact but I've just had a look and found a few spots. I should maybe use it more often but usually look at Search for Sites, a list of sostas, Archie's and Camperstop book. We didn't pay these daft prices last year but we were further north. We've hugged the coast since crossing to Italy from France and whilst there's been some beautiful scenery just about every car park has a height barrier. It will probably be a lot easier when we move inland and cross over toward Ancona.

We did exactly the same...into the last week of our four week tour and have spent most of it in the South of France as we couldn't find the Sosta's in Italy...just the one in San Remo @ 10 Euro per day...one night and part of the next morning to get up and leave was 20 Euro...must do a lot more research for Italy before we try that again...

Hi Pat & Phil,

It is a bit off route but Assisi is worth a visit. Just a thought, if you want to steer clear of Florence in the van then there is a good train service from Pisa.

Keep blogging. watch out for Grexit though!

Missed Assisi and St Francis. We're in Ancona now and on the 2pm ferry tomorrow. Having said that with our history with ferries...............
Euros stashed throughout the van in case of a Grexit :)
