All in all this was one of the most challenging and important assignment for the fledgling, but pacesetting Ernesto Tours (ET).
It went a bit like this.
John and Sue fly to Verona from Belfast and stay one night at 37 Stradone Porta Palio (the 'mini Jesus')
Ernesto and Maureena (have I mentioned those names ...
... all the warm and fuzzy but this place isn't cheesy. Romantic and charming is how the Italian people are. At least if your wanting to visit Venice, do yourself a favour, stay in Verona. (Melissa). Verona is relaxed and easy going, if a little pretentious at times. The historic buildings, ancient city defences and ruins that are wide open to be explored, climbed on or crawled through are fantastic. The food is pretty good, although I must admit ...

This morning we had breakfast at the hotel– it was quite crowded here. I rang Zia
Nanina and then Libera – to touch base about visiting when Josy comes. Then we
bussed into Verona. We had another little look around but mainly wanted to shop
at the Coin dept store again. I bought a couple of little summery tops (yellow
and black and white) as it is hot. I also bought some gift items. Craig bought
... br> except for 5 euros an hour – seems unlike most other areas – more like
Australia! We still haven’t bought a local sim – called a tim. Hope to do so in
Pistoia. Anyway we have come back to Verona to see the opera Carmen tomorrow
night in the Arena. Can’t wait. After a shop at the local PAM supermarket,
which is next door to the Hotel Maxim, we had a good rest and lunch in ...
Arrivederci, Florence! A quick stop in Verona where we saw the setting of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Everyone left love notes in the alley leading up to the balcony. The tradition was to write on a band-aid or on the wall itself. From Verona, it was off to Venice!! We took the water taxi over to the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCamping Castel San Pietro Verona
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.
