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.

... like the middle of nowhere. As it turns out if you take the direct route it's only a 10 minute drive to Lake Garda. So armed with 2 maps from the delightful Moreno we headed to Milralago for a lovely dinner with fantastic views. From the restaurant Jago spotted 2 football pitches, AC Garda. So the boys had a kick around and I went to check out the nearby pool. Then we drove to ...
... is still in use). There were many steps to get to the top, but it was well worth the view! Italian cities are beautiful from every angle. On our way back into town we walked across the Ponte Pietra bridge. We also found a great place in Piazza Bra for afternoon drinks and relaxed for an hour or two watching the action around the ...
... center of the city. There was an outdoor market and many shops and restaurants. This was probably one of the most beautiful piazza's I've seen because of the historic buildings that were painted. After this we wandered around to no particular place; that always seems to work out best for us. We found quite a few churches and a park right alongside the river.
We came back early for a quick ...
... stopped for lunch beside one of the 3 lakes that surround Mantova. Another beautiful, sunny day. After a shower back on the boat we headed into town for a guided tour of the town centre. We saw the Palazza Ducale which was home to the Gonzaga family for 400 years until the early 18th century. They supported the arts and the palace has many fine frescos which we unfortunately could not see. We then visited the 2 enormous cathedrals and a small circular ...
