A popular day trip from Milan is the impressive Lake Como, the deepest lake in the country. Very nice to take a boat trip here!

It is time to travel to a little lesser-known gem: Bologna! If there's one thing you can't ignore in Bologna, it's the many museums. Think of the Archaeological Museum, the Bologna National Gallery and the Archiginnasio, which used to be part of the university, but today houses an anatomical theatre. After your visit to a museum, you can settle down in Piazza Maggiore for a drink while surrounded by the most beautiful Renaissance buildings. Don't forget to pick up some goodies for your motorhome trip at one of the many markets!

Specialities: Mortadella, a sausage from Bologna, is one of the specialities. Tortellini in brodo, the well-known tortellini, but served in a broth, is also widely eaten here!

Accommodation: at Camper Stop Area Bottega del Camper Bologna and at the company Ropa Center.

- Bologna may not be as well known, but it is just as beautiful! 

San Marino

You go from Bologna to another country, San Marino! Although this may not be an Italy, it is definitely worth crossing during your motorhome trip! San Marino is one of the smallest countries in the world. Because it is so small, a day here is enough. The biggest attraction: the historic centre, which as a whole is on the UNESCO World Heritage List! From the mountain on which the city lies, you have a beautiful view, so don't forget to take a peek over the edge when you visit the castle!

Specialities: the local bitter liqueur Tilus.

Accommodation: closest to the town centre is Camperstop P10, but you can also spend the night at motorhome stopovers P13, Camper Stop and San Marino.
