The Italian Republic (Repubblica Italiana) is one of the most influential countries to shape the Western world. Located in Southern Europe, Italy is just over 300.000 square kilometers, which is about the size of the United Kingdom and Ireland combined! Known for its beautiful beaches, this country has 7600 km of coastline, which is the fifteenth highest in the world. Italy also holds Europe’s only three active volcanoes: Stromboli, Etna, and Vesuvius. Additionally, almost eighty percent of Italy’s terrain is either mountainous or hilly. There is no better way to take advantage of the country’s exceptional landscape than by camping in Italy.
When one thinks of Italy, thoughts of ancient ruins, artistic masterpieces, and appetizing food come to mind. Italy boasts several regions and numerous cities that are stocked full of rich culture. One of the most popular regions is Tuscany, with Florence, Elba, Pisa, and Siena being top destinations. This region is most known for its fine art, medieval history, beautiful beaches, and rolling hills. If you would like a more lively campsite in Tuscany, Campsite Norcenni Girasole is a great option. For something a bit more family-oriented, check out International Camping Etruria. Camping in Italy is the best way to experience the country! Choose between a spacious, preassembled tent or a luxurious mobile home. With Rent-a-Tent, you’ll spend your days discovering the treasures of Italy and your nights sleeping soundly in the presence of nature! Some Italian holidays might not feel complete without seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa or tasting fine Tuscan wines and olive oils! The campsites great for this are Barco Reale and Baia del Marinaio.
In spite of its beautiful beaches, many travellers travel to Italy for its freshwater! Two popular lakes (lago in Italian) are Lago Maggiore and Lago di Garda. On the south side of the Alps, Lake Maggiore extends from the Italian regions of Piedmont and Lombardy far into the Italian-speaking district of Switzerland! Camping in Lago Maggiore is the only way to immerse yourself into its lush, green vegetation and cool, blue waters. Take a look at Campsite Valle Romantica, with its beautiful gardens, mountian views, and fantastic location right on the water. Why stay in a stuffy hotel far from the water? You can have an entire mobile home for you and your family just meters away from the shore! The same goes for Lake Garda, which is approximately 370 square kilometers of water and features approximately 160 km of shoreline! As Italy’s largest lake, it’s no surprise that Lago di Garda divides three regions: Verona, Brescia, and Trento. With its stark shade of blue and unparalleled transparency, Garda is guaranteed to be an unforgettable camping destination. Campsites nearby include Butterfly, Tiglio and the popular Bella Italia.
Whether your goal is to witness the remains of The Last Supper in Milan, learn to recreate authentic pasta with an Italian chef in Tuscany, or to hike and swim along the cerulean waters of Lago Maggiore, camping in Italy is sure to make your holiday a success!
