Camp Primero about 90 miles from Venice.

No ACSI card again (bloody jirmans) but well worth it, lovely swimming pool and plenty of shade available on our spacious pitch.
Everything went according to plan as the cycle paths were brilliant, well marked and followed the coast in both directions.
Managed to get two rides in, first on was a late afternoon ride and was definitely the right time to go, we saw a few camper vans in and aire or whatever they call them in Italy, and got speaking to a british couple who were on their way to Lake Garda and were staying there for €4 per night!!! The second one, the following morning seemed like a good idea when we set off but once we arrived at our destination of the Roman Basilica at Aquileia it was 31 degrees.
We were both flagging a bit by the time we got back, not particularly from the bike ride as we were just meandering and getting those pedals turning, but the heat caught us by surprise, you know what they say about mad dogs and Englishmen.

Rest of the day/evening was spent relaxing arround the pool and van and planning our next campsite destination that would be handy for getting the ferry into Venice.
Good old MMM forum, a few people have recomended Camping Village Miramare which is as close to Venice as you can get without being there.
The ferry terminal is only a few hundred metres away from the campsite so we can quite easily get into Venice with hopefully not too much hassle (apart from the bloody tourists)
Earliest we can get away is 7.30 in the morning, its now 5.30 and we are both up as it’s so humid even with all the windows open trying to catch a breeze.
If all goes to plan, next update, Venice, both dead excited.
