Arrival from Germany and Austria
You will reach "Bella Italia" either on the traditional route from Austria via Brennero or from Switzerland (Gotthard- or San Bernadino Pass).
Please do not forget to take your passport and international car insurance documents with you
If you enter Italy from the direction of Switzerland we recommend to choose the route via Milan (Milano) to Bologna. Coming from the Brennero you will pass Trento, Modena and Bologna. Then, your journey will lead over Florence (Firenze) to Orvieto.
From the exit of the motorway just follow the signs Bolsena/Lago di Bolsena up to a roundabout in Orvieto. Leave this roundabout in South-Western direction to Viterbo, Roma, Montefiascone. After a couple of kilometres you will underrun an ancient stone aqueduct. Shortly after the road is taking almost a right-angled turn to the left in the direction of Bolsena. The route is signed, however, is not easily to be found. After having crossed a bridge you will slowly but steadily reach in reinforced serpentines a volcanic peak. Enjoy this unique view of the town of Orvieto and its dome before you continue the road along the rim of the vulcano lined with wonderful pine trees.
After some kilometres you will reach the junction "Bolsena" leading down into the crater. Further on, a small parking lane on the left side invites you stop for a while. You will enjoy the view of the Lago and the town with the same name. Here you will get a first impression of the size and situation of the lake.
Following the serpentines downhill you will come to Bolsena. Crossing the market place you will reach the highway, the ancient Via Cassia. Take a right turn on the street light at the South of the market into the Via Cassia and follow it along the lake westwards. Soon you will see the signs of MASSIMO Camping + Apartments and San Lorenzo Nuovo. After approx. 3,5 kilometres the street leads away from the lake at the "Camping Cappelletta". From here it is only 100 meters before you may take a left turn to MASSIMO Camping + Apartments. Please do not forget to set the indicator!

Certainly, you are on vacation and time does not play a role. We would, however, like to give you an idea for the time required for your travel. Provided that the traffic is normal, the weather is fine and you drive moderately:
- Modena - Bologna ca. 40 km or 0,5 hour
- Bologna - Firenze ca. 85 km, 1 hour
- Firenze - Orvieto ca. 190 km, 2 hour
- Orvieto - Bolsena ca. 28 km, 0,5 hour
...you may also use the toll-free Superstrada from Florence to Siena. Via Acquapendente and San Lorenzo you will reach the Lago di Bolsena. A very nice route, which, however, is a little bit more strenuous.
