Sun, sea, beach and lakes
Many campsites in Italy are located between imposing mountains, lakes or on the coast. You can enjoy culture, food and drinks, both on and around the campsite. The famous lakes in the north of Italy, including Lake Garda and Lago di Maggiore are tourist attractions.
The camping holiday is an adventure in itself when you stay at a campsite in areas such as Tuscany and Umbria. At Italian campsites on the Adriatic coast it is wonderful to sunbathe and relax on the long beaches. The islands of Elba, Sardinia and Sicily are also part of the Italian Republic, and grow into increasingly popular areas for a camping holiday.
When it gets too hot for the tent or caravan and you want to take a refreshing dive in the cooling pool at the campsite, do not forget to wear a swimming cap: this is required on some campsites in swimming pools in Italy!
Visit world cities from the campsites in Italy
The country is divided into 20 so-called 'regions' (including Tuscany, Umbria, Le Marche, Piedmont). Important large cities that are absolutely worth visiting are Rome, Milan, Naples, Turin and Florence. Italian art is overwelming! The smallest independent state in the world 'Vatican City', the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, is also worth a visit. The Vatican City and many major cities are easily accessible by train from the train station in the vicinity of the campsites in Italy.
Pizza, pasta or a delicious gelato? The Italian cuisine is rich and known throughout the world. Did you know that the pizza Margherita is named after former Italian Queen Margaret? And have you ever noticed that the pizza has the national tricolor? The ingredients mozzarella, basil and tomato mimic the Italian flag.
But Italy has more to offer than pizza. Take a bruchetta in the afternoon with a glass of wine. This is a toasted piece of bread, smeared with garlic and sprinkled with olive oil, salt and pepper. There are also variations with tomato, vegetables and cheese. Ideal as a snack or in advance. Be surprised by the rich Italian cuisine.
Italy is pre-eminently the country of wine. Wine is made in almost every region, from different types of grapes. A well-known wine is the Chianti Classico. Originally, this wine comes from the area between Florence, Siena and Arezzo. In terms of area (160km) this region is larger than the French wine region Bordeaux. But also the red wines of the blue grape Montepulciano and Sangiovese from Tuscany, are widely known.
The sunny, warm and dry climate ensures that the grapes are rich in sugar. The more south you get, the warmer it gets, making the wines generally sweeter. The liqueur-like dessert wines usually come from the south. The north of Italy has especially the lighter, more elegant white wines.
From the campsites in Italy, take a trip to one of the many wineries. The owners can tell you everything about the wines of the region and of course have a taste of it. Often excursions are organized from the campsite to one of these wineries or tastings. And do not forget to take a few good bottles of wine home with you, so that you can enjoy the wonderful camping holiday in Italy!
Holidays in Italy
Italy has a number of official holidays. One of the most important days to remember when you go camping in Italy is August 15, the so-called 'Ferragosto'. All of Italy is then closed and the local population flock to the beaches, lakes and parks in the area. A good idea to enjoy the sun and the peace at the tent or caravan, at the campsite.
A valid passport or European identity card is required when you drive to the campsites in Italy. Drivers of motor vehicles must carry a valid driving license, a registration certificate and a green card. When you drive a trailer or a caravan, it is mandatory to have the accompanying documents with you. Italy is a member of the EU and has the Euro as its official currency.
