We took a couple of days to travel north to Rimini, then west to Bologna, Verona and on to Lake Garda. Bardolino was a popular lakeside resort and the roads around the town were heaving with traffic. We arrived at “our” camp site only to be told it was full. We tried several other campsites along the shores of Garda but they were either full or the pitches were so tightly packed that it would have been torture to spend time there. We carried on north until we reached a quieter area near Castellotto, Brenzone and found a little site set in an olive grove by the side of the lake. It was perfect for cycling to local towns and walking along the lake.
