    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.

    The satnav was taking us up a mountain - we expected this anyway as the name of the campsite was 'panoramic'. It had already gone 6pm and the other site was 45min away so we hoped this place could accommodate us. But it wasn't to be. Getting to the other campsite meant crossing the centre of the city and a suggestion was made by one of us that if …

    Venice to Florence, campsite and gelato

    We were both very tired and scratchy as the Italians although friendly, are very noisy and had kept us awake until past midnight on our overnight train trip. As we were waiting for our train, The Orient Express pulled up next to us. It was so clean and crisp. The chefs walked by in their big hats, and the waiters & porters were decked out in …

    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."
