Lake Como

Funnily enough, Lake Como is just up the road, I live in Varese. When are you heading over? Are you driving down? Let us know where you are thinking of camping and maybe I could do a recce for you!

Lake Como Camping

I was there last year in July and it was very busy we had to try about 3or 4 campsites before we got squeezed in a corner. They do not like overnighters they prefere if you stay for the week which I can understand but it does not help when you are moving on every day.

I am sure you will gte in somehwere but maybe not where it si your first choice, lovely place to stay and clean water to swim in. Buy a bottle of wine and kick back on the shore of the lake in the evening.
I intetend to go back again soon.
Good luck:laugh::laugh:

Is there an echo in here?:lol:

I was thinking it would be busy, but the good thing is that there seem to be plenty of sites around. I am planning on stopping for at least three nights, hopefully they should be happy with that.

R1der8118; A recce would be great!!

I'll be riding over end of July heading through Belguim>Germany>Switzerland>Italy. Defo will be camping, I was looking at the following;

 http://www.magiclake.it/

This does seem to be quite popular so will need to see what availability is like, lots of other sites in this area also so  i should at least find something. :biggrin:

Looks like a decent place, its a fair lick up the side of Como but keep meaning to take a trip up there myself. Ive cycled all round Maggiorie and obviously lake Varese but Como was next on my list. When I get my R1 over end of the month I'll take a ride up and check it out. Wouldn't camping up there myself. That and Lake Garda are pretty decent. Good luck on the ride down, bit apprehensive myself but will see how it goes.
