We woke up, to see that the brunt of the storm had passed us over night, and what was left was a couple of rainy patches. After packing up stinky, we headed back up the road, so we can have a nice view of Lake Garda in all it’s glory.
We then decided to drive along the coast of Lake Garda, South towards Verona. Along the way, we stopped off at a beautiful village, with it’s own castle located right on the lake: Malcesine. Here we packed Claude up, and walked a few hundred meters along the lake right into the beautiful medieval town – and have a look around.
After watching a couple of people brave the wind on their windsurfing boards, we headed straight down to Verona. Verona is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and had lots to offer for us, it has a lot of Roman ruins, such as the Coliseum style ‘Arena’ to the famous wee balcony of Juliet’s house (Romeo & Juliet).
After another pizza :) (and over-hearing a Tourist ask herself if there’s a Pizza-Hut close by), the sun decided to shine – so we slowly made our way back to Claude, and prepare ourselves for the dive South to the beautiful city that was Florence.
We arrived just after the sunset, and drove around a bit – while trying to locate one of the campsites that Gina had found for us before hand, and boy we were in luck. It was a couple of hundred yards away from the beautiful viewpoint: Piazzale Michelangelo – a lovely square, perched up above the river with magnificent panoramic views of the whole city.
We retired to the campsite for the evening – as we were both pretty tired, and hit the campsite bar for a relaxing evening.
