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.

... to put her feet up. A visit to the museum was on the afternoon agenda which is housed in the castle it was interesting how many paintings of Madonna & Child can be housed in one place. The most impressive parts were the original wall decorations and the walk around part of the castle walls with great views
of the town in the evening light. She was pleased to be back to check on the patient once more and put her feet up after so many stairs.
... that looked nice, but otherwise the city seemed to be dark and covered in graffiti. I decided I would just head back to the area where my hotel was, just few minutes out of the centre and find some food there. What I didn't know was the only restaurant in this are was a steakhouse. Not wanting to ride down the major road in the dark back to the centre, I decided to just have whatever was cheapest. This turned out to be something like ...
... and we mentioned Seattle, the owner said that he knows Rick Steves who indeed has visited his restaurant. Very proudly he brought out his tablet to show us the video clip. Wine was poured with a very unique aerator that is hand blown glass from Italy. When Kathy asked where we might get one the owner said he would sell us one. Another souvenir of our trip!
Verona has been a lovely stop and one to recommend for a short stay en route to Venice.
... Soraighe". Great tasting, full body with a very nice finish. We even tried to buy some locally but could not find it. There is a website for it however - www.soraighe.com.
The tour was a great way to get a first look at old Verona, a classic Italian town with a lot of old Roman construction including a remarkable arena.
We completed our wine tasting / tour of Verona about ...
