Italy by campervan

Jump to last reply

Hello, everybody! I'm here to ask for some opinion/help on the trip we're planing for three people this summer, 20 days on a campervan through Italy. I know that threads like this can bring not such a positive reaction, but this is a lifetime dream and we're kinda decided on doing this so..
Anyway, we're traveling from the half of August to the end of the first week of Sep. and are planing on starting in Liubliana, Slovenia, and going down till Naples and then back. These are the details we could put together until now:
Day 1: Getting to Liubliana in the morning, renting the campervan, parking and going discover the town a little. Sleep.
Day 2: Wake early, leave Liubliana towards Venice, park close to Venice and go discover the historic center. Come back to the van and sleep.
Day 3: Venice all day, sleep.
Day 4: Waking early and driving from Venice to somewhere in Lake Garda (possibly Malcesine or Riva del Garda). Park and spend the rest of the day at some beach. Sleep.
Day 5: From Lake Garda to Florence. Park and discover Florence. Sleep.
Day 6: Florence all day, sleep.
Day 7: Wake up early and visit Pisa quick. Maybe lunching there. Then from Pisa to San Gimignano. Park, discover San Gimignano not till late and sleep.
Day 8: Wake up and drive from San Gimignano to Civita in Viterbo. Park close to Civita and go discover. Sleep.
Day 9: Wake up early and leave Civita towards Rome. Get to Rome, park and walk around a little. Sleep.
Day 10: Rome all day
Day 11: Rome again
Day 12: Wake up early and drive to some beach on the coast of Lazio or Campania (Anzio? Sperlunga? Gaeta?). Beach day and sleep not late.
Day 13: Wake up and drive the remaining distance to Naples. Park, walk a little around Naples. Sleep.
Day 14: Pompeii on the first half of the day, discover Naples on the second. Sleep.
Day 15: Beach day somewhere on Amalfi coast.
Day 16: Beach day somewhere on Amalfi coast number two. Sleep not late.
Day 17: Drive long hours from Campania all the way back to Veneto and stop in Caorle, not far from Venice. Park and sleep.
Day 18: At the beach in Caorle.
Day 19: Second beach day in Caorle.
Day 20: Drive back to Slovenia, deliver the van back, airport, fly.

I know this doesn't seem relaxing but we are really willing to see as much as we can in 20 days, experiencing the landscapes of the countryside on the first half of the trip and having enough beach days on the second.
I have been looking for public parking lots to stop for free or for not a big amount per day in every town that we'll be, for example Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence and Piazzale dei Partigiani in Rome etc.
Do you think it's possible to drive a big part of it all (or at least a part) avoiding big Autostrade (paying less tolls and also passing through more picturesque landscape)?

What are your guys opinions? Like, is there anything you'd do different or just anything you have to tell me that could help us? I'm sure ready to come back in September and report how everything went.
