    Not our favourite campsite. Easy to catch a bus into, view is magnificent but that is it.
    Toilets are filthy on both occasions that we were here. Expensive for winter time.

    Nestled high in the hills over the Arno from the main centre of Florence is the Campsite "Michelangelo" - a short wander from the Piazza Michelangelo which has even better views over the skyline of Florence. The bus from the train station tikes you right up to the Piazza and past the campsite so it is very easy to get too and from each day. You can walk down into the city centre but walking back up takes a braver man than me.

    The campsite itself is professional and well looked after and is always popular with campers and caravaners alike. There is a truly cosmopolitan feel to the campsite and a great mix of old in their camper vans and the young backpackers off to see the world on a budget!

    It is however lacking certain key elements which some people would consider necessary for a particular level of luxury, namely there is no pool or restaurant. The tiny bar does do bar snacks and some pizzas but these are often from frozen.

    The bar itself has a little terrace which serves as a meeting point for people and is always humming with activity throughout the day and night. There is a well stocked shop with reasonably sensible hours and plenty of showers and toilets, though not always the height of cleanliness.

    We were not expecting an luxuries so to find a campsite which was 10-15mins bus away from the centre of Florence and which had all the necessary amenities was all we were after. The lack of a pool was a shame but the good atmosphere helped to overcome this to a degree and the views over Florence's skyline as the sun set behind the Duomo were simply breathtaking.

    DAY ONE Arriving on the sweaty bus through the hills of Florence I was shocked to discover a group of pubescent boys leering at my breasts (hence the title). Covering up hastily, we got off at our stop at the Michelangelo Campsite and checked into our house tent which was literally a bunk bed and single bed on a floor, surrounded by a waterproof …

    Having a sneaky sleep in, we woke up and went down for breakfast. Amazing buffet of cooked breakfast, breads and cereals awaited. I got sucked in by the coffee vending machine and got a latte which was only milk…. Had to get a separate espresso and mix the two together, but was then delicious.

    We headed into town and met up with a …

    Waking up at 6am we showered and packed up. No porridge for breakfast, but we did have pancakes with fruit syrup! We boarded the bus in what I see was minus 15 degrees according to the bus thermometer. Took awhile for the bus to warm up but the drive was stunning in the morning sun. The road ran along the river with froze banks, trees and …

    Today is Wednesday and its time to move on, we catch a train from Florence to Cinque Terre where we will set up housekeeping in the village of Vernazza. After 3 quick train transfers we arrive in time to meet Christian, the host of our next apartment. This apartment is amazing for its view and terrace over looking the Sea, the "Gulf of Poets."
