    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.

    The more Mary and I explored Verona the more surprises we found. As I mentioned last time we had both been craving sushi for several days so we decided to try a restaurant called "Ikai", which after a lot of research seemed to garner nothing but really good reviews. All of the research we did said that reservations were recommended so we made ours at 7:30, early by Italian standards but we didn’t know if sushi ran on a different timetable. Ikai was outside the ...

    ... to upgrade our hire car to a Classic Italian Alfa Romeo Giuletta ( or similar) was a complete wast of time and we ended up with a citroen C3 Picasso. Not at all similar !! I will be taking this up with the hire company on our return. Other than that it has been a fantastic ten days which as Kate keeps on reminding me was all booked by her.... Except the car hire! At least I tried.. So until next time it's Arrivederci from Audrey & tony. Ciao for now and enjoy the last few pictures ...

    ... and you have an interest in archaeology I would urge you to come see for yourself.

    Well believe it or not Mary and I have been craving sushi for the last several days and we think we may have found a sushi restaurant here. We're going to check it out for dinner tonight. We're not sure what we'll find in a sushi restaurant in Verona, Italy so stay tuned.

    ... in Verona, see Juliet's (or Giuletta's as they say here) house. Now having seen Letters to Juliet many times, hey I like a chick flick every now and then, I figured that was going to be about the extent of the sites to see in Verona, which was fine since we are scheduled for only one night here. Wow, I could not have been more wrong.

    We did see Juliet's house and it was as you might imagine, its in a a nice courtyard surrounded by ...

    We said goodbye to the baby sitters, Uncle Anthony (Jungle Gym) and Aunty Tracy (Just a Girl). They went to Florence for 4 days, Tuscany region. Thanks again to them for popping round to baby sit. We did some washing and then went to the pool for a dip, managed to get an early afternoon nap in with the boys. It is extremely hot in Italy Cheryl. ...
