    If you do nothing else, visit Sirmione.

    A wise man would have left the cost and just legged it.

    Have stayed at Butterfly quite a few times but last time, even though we had booked, we could not get on the pitch allocated.

    If you are in Peschiera, and want to be in that town to be near the trains etc, then Camping del Garda has a lot of pitches and is also walkable to the trains. Another less busy site is Camping dell Ouva.

    Speaking of trains, you can often get two seats for the price of one. Google "Trenitalia" and select the English option. You book the tickets on line and collect at the station from the machine. "2-4-1" is usually Saturday or Sunday travel.

    Russell .. we were looking at going to Butterfly on 23 July but we are becoming a little worried that we may not get a pitch .. even if we book.. Would it be easier to turn up and hope for the best or is booking still going to be the obvious way .. (I just checked Camping del Gardas website and they dont have a booking facility on there)

    Butterfly

    In the past, I have pre booked Butterfly and also just turned up. The latest occasion, they had reserved a pitch, but being a tag axle etc etc. I had said in the email though the length of the unit.

    July is tricky as it is holiday time. There are however many sites at Lake Garda and also camperstop at Peschiera.

    I dont pre book anything anymore except the UK but we travel in Italy usually in May and September.
