“That’s Amore”, Italian Lakes & German Castles
What’s in store for our 4 wheeled adventure?
We had wanted to tour the Italian Lakes for some time now, avoiding the busiest period was our aim, along with trying to catch some late summer Italian sunshine.
With an image of us touring along the shores of the lakes with the roof down, wind blowing through our hair and Dean Martin’s dulcet tones singing “That’s Amore”, this was not going to be put off any longer.
As we live in the south east of the UK and we love our road trips, there was no other option for us than to fire up the Quattro.
Were we just going to see the lakes?
Oh no, a brief overnighter in France, a hop through Switzerland, 8 nights in Italy (which includes attending the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Monza).
Then skim into Austria briefly and 5 nights in Germany.
This was going to be fun!!!!!
So, if further inspiration were needed for us to embark on this trip, then here are just a few reasons why;

Our chosen locations for the road trip are;
No guarantee of the weather, but a few opportunities to lower the roof of the car would be ideal.
It is on the day of Gary’s birthday so I’m sure we’ll take a bottle of prosecco, moor up and enjoy the scenery.
Points to note;
