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.

... her house is meant to dedicate your love for eternity.
In the right hand corner as you look up is a white balcony. It is exactly how I remembered it. In the centre of her piazza is a statue of Juliet herself. One of her breasts is really gold. Legend has it that if you touch the gold breast you will be lucky in love. I remember when I was 18 I was too mortified to touch her boob as I thought it was rude. Nothing stopped me this time. I am 31 and ...
Sunday we took the bullet train 1.5 hours north to Verona. We were met at the station by missionaries Michael and Loretta Hopkins who we met as itinerant pastors in our Florence church. We enjoyed a regional meal and good conversation followed by a walk around the beautiful city. We walked past the arena, similar to Rome's Coliseum, which is the symbol of the city's Roman tradition. We passed through a medieval market which was setup in the main piazza before ...
... soaring mountains to the north and softer hills to the south, we will spend the night there before driving further north to Lake Como. Along the way it was nice to pass through some hills after the flat countryside around Venice, we were in wine growing country, we passed miles and miles of vines originally the monks of the area were given special privileges to work the land and produce wine. As we approached the ...

... took photos, grabbed Juliet's breast and put locks on the back gate. I saw couples whispering to each other and sharing a secret kiss. I thought about it. Was it a silly tourist trap? After all there is no evidence that Romeo and Juliet ever existed! I could have easily laughed at the people saying their I love you's and putting their locks on the gate hoping that meant their love would last forever. But I didn't. I embraced ...
