      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.

      ... stop was the amphitheater a truly spectacular sight where they still perform opera and ballet. They really built things to last here!!! Final stop in Verona was the Giardino Giusti gardens which were created at the end of the 15th century and from the top offer a beautiful panorama of Verona. All in all I think Verona has been the place I have enjoyed the most in Italy. Off to Switzerland ...

      ... to the castel San pietro. The views were stunning the sun was beating down and I even had to take off my coat. Then we headed for the bell tower the torre dei lamberti to climb the 366 steps to the top. Although I didn't make it quite to the very top Nick had to leave me where the bells were because you could see through the final steps to the ground below and it freaked me out!! Not a great lover of heights. Off to the bar now for a well earned ...

      ... The Arena is a Roman amphitheater built in the 1st century completed in 30 AD. It's the third largest in Italy, the size and complexity of the structure made it an important predecessor in planning the Colosseum in Rome which began construction in 80 AD. The arena hosted popular entertainment of the time including gladiator combats and staged hunts on exotic animals, seating over 39000 spectators. Although ...

      An Unexpected Gem

      ... to the historic arena, locked up the gear and
      started to stroll. We had a coffee in a pavement café in front of
      the arena, and wandered down the shopping streets until we came
      across the market square. More coffee, or maybe beer followed.
      Every street we turned down led to a hidden square, fabulous old
      architecture or something else of interest. This city proved to be
      the unexpected gem of the holiday and it was a pity we did not have
      more time.

      ... When it turned up, it was a nearly new catamaran
      almost as quick as the fast cat from the day before. Arriving back
      in Sirmione, the weather soon began to brighten up and it turned into
      a lovely day again. We took our time looking in the shops and
      stopping for a couple of beers in a tiny bar. Jayne bought me a
      magnificent Fossil watch in one of the shops. We walked from one end
      of the town and back again, taking in ...
