In mid-August I took a backpack, my best friend and a camper van and drove over 1,500km through Italy.
Without a real agenda or a specific route, we set off from Venice with the sole aim of trying to get as far south as possible in seven short days. Our ride was completely ridiculous, a 5-seater safari camper painted a mix of garish yellow and orange, emblazoned with 'assassins do it from behind' on the back. I pretend not to have completely loved it.
We made 14 stops (Venice - Florence - La Spezia (+ Cinque Terre) - Viareggio - Tarquinia - Naples - Sorrento - Capri - Nerano - Amalfi Coast - Salerno - Rome - Venice) and lived off a diet that was 90% carbohydrates. We camped, we beached, we drank a spritz in every place, and we bombed it back to Venice from Salerno on the last day.
