    I am planning a trip to Italy next year but it will be a few weeks earlier than this road trip (over Easter). Is Easter a terrible time to visit Italy? I am thinking that a lot of campsites, restaurants and other places of interest could be closed.
    Any of you frequent visitors to Italy have experience over Easter?

    Sounds brilliant and would love to go
    Although at this rate there will be so many going that the front of the convoy will be in Italy and the back will be in Calais! :D

    Hello Johnny
    We went to Italy on Easter since I was a child (not every year though), and it is perfect to find an early spring. This year we visit Tuscany the 2 weeks after easter. Tourists are there, enough campsites are open, but it is not too crowded or too hot, so we never go in summer ...

    Hi there, it's all very early days at the moment but we are looking at 3 days travelling down and then a long weekend in Italy. Everyone will then either stay at the site or go their own way.

    Thanks to everyone who has responded both on here , Facebook and via PM.

    I must admit we had no idea this would be so popular as we originally thought we would have just 10 vans but we are now at over 50!

    Due to this being the first time we have ever attempted something like this we may have to restrict numbers, also we could do with another organiser to join the team, especially if you have done the route before or if you are a French speaker?
