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 an amazing choice of Europe's most exciting amusement parks.
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 very 21st century activities and attractions.
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.
|Otherwise known as St. Mark's square, why not take a trip to Caffé Florian, one of the oldest and most expensive Venetian coffee bars?|
|The stunning hilltop town of Montepulciano is in the province of Siena. Starting at Porta al Prato, the main street stretches for 1.5km uphill to the Piazza Grande.|

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.
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'.
