Campsites Italy

Italy, in south-central Europe, lies in the North Temperate Zone and enjoys warm, dry summers and mild winters in most regions. Italy also features some of the most diverse and dramatic landscapes in the world, including beaches, lakes and mountains, making it the ideal destination for a luxury camping break.

Why is Italy the best country for family camping holidays?

Top campsites, or campeggi, as they are known locally, provide opportunities for families to experience local culture in peaceful, rural surroundings, while remaining within easy reach of popular urban destinations, such as the cities of Rome, Venice and Florence. Rome, the capital city of Italy, in the central portion of the Italian peninsula, is one of the most famous historic cities in the world and is awash with must-see attractions. Highlights of the so-called Eternal City include the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican City, home of the Sistine Chapel. Elsewhere, the Amalfi Coast, in southwestern Italy on the Mediterranean Sea is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the country, characterised by rugged cliffs interspersed with romantic bays and enchanting towns. 

Food and Culture

Italian culture has flourished since antiquity and is reflected in the art, architecture, music, food and drink for which the country is famous around the world. Architectural styles such as Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical and, of course, Roman, originated in Italy. Italian Renaissance painters, including Raphael, Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo and Titian, influenced generations of artists that followed. Various cooking traditions also exist around Italy. Pizza in Naples, for example, has a thick, fluffy crust, while Pizza in Rome is thin and slightly crisp. Regional specialities include bread, pasta, meat and, of course, a selection of palatable, yet inexpensive, Italian wine. Book your luxury camping holiday in Italy with Allcamps today.
