... next site just outside Pavia, "Camping Ticino" its Cheaper (not much) than the last site and with much better facilities, oh and there are people staying here, which we also forgot to mention, there was no one on the previous site - all in all a much better place to be...
So, what did we do?
Firstly, we had to sort out our issues with ...
We left Lake Garda to head for our next stop "Campeggio Parco Al Po" in Cremona.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Vip Piacenza
3 Star hotel where the owner speaks a little of many languages but it helps if you can speak Italian.
Breakfast is simple: Bread, cheese, ham, jam, coffee, tea, orange juice - help yourself between 8-12.
Rooms as expected. Wi-Fi is limited, probably only on the ground floor.
Sockets in the rooms, mostly hidden put you can charge from the light switch/socket combo. I also found a European socket behind the door.
