Camping Italy

If you love the outdoors, why not combine this with all the sights and sounds that this amazing country has to offer by camping in Italy. It’s a great way to enjoy nature, take in the landmarks and see the Italian side of things that can only be seen from a tent or lodge. Camping Italy is a popular activity all over the country and depending on where you go in your travels - you will have lots to see and do. In fact, there are over seventeen hundred official camping sites in the country. Having said that, let’s explore some camping Italy options.


Most major tourist destinations will have some type of camping available. Moreover, although the sites won’t be located in the city centre for obvious reasons, many are just a short ride away. Also, the campsites often have shuttles back and forth from the cities, or you can hop on a local bus or train if available. Here are just a few of the popular camping Italy destinations from the 3 major regions of the country: 

  • If you are visiting Northern Italy, you can camp near Milan and Venice. A favourite campsite there is the Pra'delle Torri. It is a mere hour from Venice and very close to Caorle, a quaint fishing village. 

  • If central Italy is your destination, you can camp near Rome or Florence. Tuscany is also a popular area for campsites. Try the campsite Mareblu if you are visiting this area. It boasts a beautiful beach and this region is part of the Etruscan Coast. Florence, Pisa, and Siena are located nearby for day trips. 

  • If it’s southern Italy you are going to, you will find camping in Naples and on the Island of Sicily. The island of Sicily has a favorite campsite called the Sporting Club Village and Camping and is situated near the gorgeous town of Mazara del Vallo on the west coast of the island. This site has two swimming pools and lots of sports activities to choose from. 

Some camping Italy sites allow you to bring your own tent and gear, but if you are traveling from far away and don’t have any, don’t despair. Many sites have cabins and tent-like building for rent, and some even include washroom facilities right inside. Also, these facilities are often full service. They have restaurants, shops, and laundry services. Moreover, they usually have great amenities such as swimming pools, hot tubs, and space for activities like beach volleyball.

Whichever Italy camping site you choose to visit in Italy, you will get the best of both worlds. The beauty of nature combined with visits to historic cities and towns is sure to make for a very memorable vacation.
