    Hi All,
    We're travelling through the regions between Genoa and Ancona (and will have time to divert if worthwhile) in early June en-route to Greece.
    If possible we'd like to take a copy of the 'Italian Aree di Sosta guida CamperLife' guide but this seems currently is out of stock (with Vicarious) - does anyone have a used copy that would be willing to sell please? :RollEyes:
    Also, any recommendations for places to call into, stay a few days or just stopover along or close to the route would be very much appreciated.
    Many thanks,
    John and Diane
    :Cool:

    Pisa and Florence are Must Sees.

    Riccione for some R&R.

    The German Stellplatz book comes with a extra pan-Europe aires guide though nothing like as good as dedicated ones.

    Lots of Italian Sostas are logged in Camping Car Infos CAMPINGCAR-INFOS and you can download a POI file for the SatNav (download link next to each country in CC-Infos)
    Also might be worth getting a printed copy of 'Camperstop Europe'.

    Places to see: Lucca (walk round the walls), San Giminano, Siena (magical city - climb the campanile), Montepulciano.

    Pisa we stayed here, easy walk to the town. Well worth seeing it for real.

    Florence, you can walk down but better to get a bus up:
    camping michealangello

    And Riccioni, there are dozens.

    Thanks Philip, managed to download the POI file quite easily - very useful site! - just need to figure out how to transfer the file onto my unhelpful TomTom now! :Angry:
    Thanks for the tips on where to see as well, the itinerary is building nicely

    Great, many thanks Jim. I've also downloaded the POI's that Philip has suggested.
    Just having tech problems copying the files to my TomTom memory card. It's formatted FAT32 which neither the iMac or PC seems able to read! We'll get there though.
    Thanks again,
    John
