Go Italian - you'll love it!
We have chosen five fabulous Italian regions; Lake Garda, Lazio, Tuscany, Adriatic Coast and the Venetian Riviera, each with Al Fresco camping holiday options to suit any style.
All these amazing Italian camping regions are very different, but each very special.
Italy's largest and most beautiful freshwater lakes, fringed by olive groves, vineyards, picturesque villages and medieval castles. Lake Garda is a wonderful place to windsurf, sail, swim - or just ramble round the shores. Exquisite natural beauty, along with one of Europe's most exciting amusement parks.
ROME & TUSCANY
Nowhere in the world will you find a region with so much to offer: Rome, the 'eternal city' and eternally exciting, Tuscany, the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence and Siena, both works of art in themselves. Alongside this incredible cultural heritage you'll find 21st century activities and attractions.
VENETIAN RIVIERA & ADRIATIC COAST
Rich in architectural gems, Venice and the Venetian Riviera is truly the 'Queen of the Adriatic'. Every scene is a work of art - best viewed from a gondola, of course. It's dazzling beauty is equalled only by its setting, the miles of golden sand and deep blue waters of this beathtaking coastline where action and excitement is a way of life on the Adriatic Coast.
What to eat & drink in Italy
Italian street markets, butchers, bakeries and greengrocers make buying food a pleasure; the unforced growing of local produce makes eating it even better. In trattorias, try specialities like 'tortina di carciofi' (baked artichoke) along with canneloni and pizza. Savour mozzarella and gorgonzola cheeses.
Enjoy the best accompaniment to any al fresco meal here - delicious Italian wines such as pinot grigrio, frascati and, of course, chianti. In Italian, fettuccini means ribbons, capelli d'angelo means angel's hair and the word pasta means paste, meaning a combination of flour and water.
What to see and do in Italy
Whether you're taking a short break or one of our camping holidays in Italy, there's lots of adventures to be had. Romantic rural Tuscany with its rolling hills is home to splendid villas and sleepy farms. Vineyards are sun-soaked on south-facing slopes, silver leafed olive groves shimmer in shade, and magical medieval towns are colour-washed in earthy tones of ochre, amber and umber.
Here lies renaissance Florence with its academic and artistic air, together with the walled city of Siena and San Gimignano, the medieval 'city of beautiful towers'.
