      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.

      We have found another place we would like to come back to. Our stay in Verona was just perfect. The old city is very easy to get around, and there were hardly any tourists, so no queues to get into the museums and churches, which was a plus after our last stops. Plus the apartment was in the centre of the old city and was just perfect (quiet, sunny, air conditioned, mosquito screens, lovely furniture, paved outdoor area with flowers and ...
