Verona and Venice

A travel blog entry by aurisch

... Venice was dotted with castles and citadels, all looking majestic on hilltops in the distance. In Venice the car drop off was just across the road from the taxi stand and within minutes we’re on the canals - magic!
Getting to our apartment was easy enough, lugging all our gear to the top floor made me appreciate shipping that carton of stuff home yesterday even more! On the way in to Venice we passed a super market. The guy that showed us our apartment gave us a map ...

Verona

What a lovely place, oozing architecture and old Venetian style - it was lovely! We drove, it took around 40 mins and headed straight into the tourist area. Parking was limited & after asking (we didn't want another tow truck!) a helpful couple on their moped showed us where to park in the centre. We were right next to the street where it is said that Juliet's balcony is (although I gather the balcony was built in the ...

A full day of sightseeing

Verona is a beautiful, wealthy, historical city compact enough to see a lot in just a few days. I, like everyone else, made the pilgrimage to see Juliet's balcony as that is what most people think of when they think of Verona. The absurd part is that while there were two politically opposed families and legends of a tragic love story, Shakespeare was the third person to write the story and is obviously the ...

... Signorvino, where we had dinner and fortified ourselves with some very nice Soave and Valpolicella. All the time our waiter was giving us some regular and quite optimistic weather reports from upstairs. So off we set for the Arena and bought some cushions for the thousands year old limestone seats where our cheap tickets got us, and ponchos just in case it rained. And then up a few flights of stairs in the vomitorium (thanks ...

Lake Garda - beauty and the beast

... but I was glad to be onshore, not drowned or wet. As we drove home we saw a sunk boat...we felt relieved it was not us!

It was a great day but such a shame about the weather... Storms were all around us when we got home and I'm afraid as we head off to Slovenia tomorrow it looks wet. Is this getting us used to the UK we have not seen inconvenient rain since Istanbul in early May.

    Rustic doesn't do this justice

    This appears to be the only campsite in Verona so if you want to camp you may have no option but to come here. There is NO sense of luxury here, this is camping at its most rustic, the hot water is only on for 2 houra each morning and evening, there is no bar, restaurant or pool and most of the individual pitches are a walk away with some kind of gradient. The shower and toilet rooms are often not lit and although they are pretty clean, this is certainly not at the top end of the scale in terms of amenities.

    That said, it has some cracking views over Verona from just below the castle which dominates the north of the river and it has many communal cooking areas so there is a very social feel to it.

    The guy who runs it is (i think) a botanist either by trade or casually and so nature is allowed to roam free over the entire site; lizards, cockroaches, all manner of butterflies and crickets are just some of the creatures you may see on wanders around the site.

    There is a shop on site and you can walk through the grounds of the castle and down into Verona in less than 10 mins (though it takes substantially longer coming back up if you are me).

    There are not many car parking spaces and most of the sites seems to cater for tents so camper vans should think about booking in advance if you can.

    I have been here twice and love it, my fiancee was less keen mainly due to once being unable to use the toilet paper in the (non-bowl style) toilets a result of the friendly cockroach which had settled down for the day there!!

    If you come expecting a very rustic experience and don't mind a bit of nature then the views and the tranquility will appeal nicely.
