Camping Italia

Italy is one of the biggest tourist hotspots in Europe because of its classical landscapes, myriad of art treasures, medieval towns, and lush green vineyards. The food is delicious, and the wine is some of the best in the world. These are enough reasons for any traveling enthusiast to head towards Italy. But the downside is that traveling in Italy can be a pretty expensive affair. So one option is to do away with expensive hotels and travel agents, and plan a trip which will take you camping Italia!

Italy as a country is quite vast and varied. Of all the regions southern Tuscany happens to be one of the biggest crowd pullers. Bibbona happens to be one such locale, in the heart of Tuscany, and parts of Grosetto and Lazio. Set between the Tyrrhenian Sea and lush green hills, Bibbona is a lovely place to launch your camping Italia experience. There are other coveted locations around the country, but Bibbona is the prototype of every campers dream destination.

The first thing you will notice about this region is its picturesque landscape. It is full of medieval towns which are rich in history and culture. The towns are sprinkled with cypress trees, in between which, you can see turrets and spirals of chapels and monasteries. These towns, though beautiful, have very narrow streets. Hence if you want to enjoy camping in Italia, then it is advisable to hire a bicycle or a scooter, which will make it easier for you to navigate the narrow and cobbled streets. Camping in Italia is also a treat for nature lovers. All over the country, there are vast areas of protected wildlife. Wild mushrooms, eucalyptus, pine forests, cork, ancient oaks and chestnut trees, and many other interesting flora and fauna are found here. The most ubiquitous tree found in Italy is the olive. These nature havens are tailor made for those people who love long walks. The most famous campsite in this region is the village of Le Capanne, which is on the fringes of Bibbona. The campsite is very close to some of the most visited towns of Tuscany. Yet it is far enough from the din characteristic of urban centers. The camp sites are hidden behind rows of trees, and all the sites are connected by winding trails. The trees form a natural barrier between the plots, thereby ruling out the need for concrete boundaries. The place is well guarded at night, and they do not allow loud music after 10 in the night. This campsite is the perfect place to go to when you go camping in Italia.

One of the downsides of camping Italia is the scorching heat of the summer months. It can get very dry and dusty, during these times. During the summers it gets very difficult to get around and heat strokes are a common occurrence. The best time to visit Italy is between the months of May to September. Weather is a big consideration when you decide to go for a camping trip.


Some important tourist locations, which you must cover while on your trip of camping in Italia, are Siena, the tower at Pisa, the Etruscan town of San Gimignano, picturesque towns of Bolgheri, Castagneto Carducci, and Piombino.
