We're planning, pending freedom do so, to go to Tuscany next June. Taking the tunnel to Calais early morning I wanted to ask for any advice regarding the most suitable route for a motorhome and/or any campsites along the way or in Tuscany that are recommended. We're not too bothered on this trip about spending additional time anywhere on the journey there. Anyway, any advice very gratefully received.

I would mostly use aires on the way there and back so just choose ones based on how far you want to drive each day. As we normally come from Roscoff my route through France won't really work for you but we've found the crossing into Italy at the Montgenevre pass is convenient and there is a nice (but pricy) aire there. I would avoid the coast road heading south although the motorway in places isn't much better. :)

Tuscany is worth visiting but the popular places can be busy.

Head through France, go through Switzerland round lake Geneva, stay a few days and enjoy the wonderful country, over the St Bernard Pass then head from Aosta down to Tuscany

We always go to Italy the long way, but we enjoy the stopovers. Calais to Peruwelz in Belgium for first overnight stop on excellent cheap aire. Then to Moselle in Germany after stopping for cheap fuel in Luxenbourg. Then maybe a couple of other stops in Germany usually along the Romantic road. Then through the Fern Pass to Innsbruck. After going through the Brenner Pass we stop at the Italian Lakes. Favourite one is Lake Iseo...stunning and quieter than the other lakes. This year we went from Iseo down to Tuscany and enjoyed Lucca, Sienna and Florence. As stated the Long way and also not much to spend on tolls.
