Upon arriving in Milan we collected the hire car, checked into our apartment and went off to explore the city by night. We went to the Duomo and walked around all the designer shops feeling like complete scruffs in our north face t-shirts around all these beautiful people. I am almost certain the tramps were better dressed than us! We had a fairly early night, wanting to be up at a good time in the morning to head to Lake Garda, and start our via ferrata adventure.

I woke up very early, quite cold, and to discover we had camped on the edge of a 20-30 metre high ravine, with a river flowing through it below. Very high, snow capped peaks were visible through the pine trees, and I enjoyed the early morning sunshine. As I was packing up some bits in the hire car, an Italian in a pick up stopped next to me and said "no camp", pointing at the tent. I apologised as best I could and said "we go now". Yes, go now he says.
