    Italy is like France, you pay as you go. Cost is about the same - 100km cost round about €10.

    Northern Lakes.

    Forget tourismo central Coma (you'll get one), or your Garda; that's where the plebs descend in droves on their hondas and touratec GS's: the Italians prefer the Riviera around Maggiore & Cannobio.

    We have a beautiful chalet here with overlook, and no, Noggins, you ain't going to use us a bus pass here, either... but it would be open to more grounded folk.

    IF Stelvio is open, make sure you get there nice and early during the week as it is busy... Usually a bloody car park, especially the hairpin bends.

    It is one thing to say yes, I've been there but quite another to say it's been brilliant.

    23rd September what will be a Saturday i think. Couple of campsites at the other end of the pass. As you are a tour guide whats the chance of snow at that time of year and also next day at St Anton, Austria?

    Impossible to say. I'd vote for thumbs up, you should be alright. However, the Alps being the Alps and the Stelvio one of the highest passes it is impossible to say yay or nay. Weather moves quickly up there and reading it is in art in itself.

    Best check the forecasts and be prepared to adjust your route if it is really awful (one of the reasons why I keep banging on about having to be flexible when riding in the mountains - you don't want to be caught with your pants down).

    Plan be is when i get to a place called Tirano that looks like last option for heading north. If the weather is looking like snow then here i just head up to Lake Konstanz and spend a couple of days in a campsite on the German side. Last think i want is lugging a heavy van over a pass in the snow no mater how nice it will look.

    Whene I drove a Transit over the Pyrennese in February, I had to make the passenger get out and push. Snow chains would've helped.
