Looking for an outdoor holiday? Well look no further than camping in Italy
With summer fast approaching now is the time to think of booking a holiday and what better than camping in Italy.
Italy has many camp sites most of which are major complexes with swimming pools, restaurants and supermarkets on site. They are graded according to a star system. In the major cities Italian campsites are usually a long way from the historic centre.
Lists of campsites can be got from the local tourist office or looked up on on various sites such as camping.ie. When camping in Italy you have a number of options. Firstly you can bring a trailer tent. This gives the freedom to decide where to go and when to go as you wish.
Specialist companies offer various packages to suit every need whether it be a family or couple, one centre or multi-centre holiday. Campotel is one such provider of camping holidays in Italy.
Besides enjoying the onsite activities there is a wealth of sightseeing to be done in Italy.
For example staying on a campsite in Lombardy affords a holidaymaker the opportunity to visit Milan and maybe take in a performance at La Scala, cruise the blue waters of Lago Maggiore, discover Mantua's fabulous Palazzo Ducale. A visit to Gardaland which is a Disney-style amusement park is also worthwhile.
In Milan there are many museums to visit. Leonardo da Vinci's magnificent mural of the Last Supper can be seen on one wall of the Cenacola Vinciano, the refectory adjoining Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie.The Palazzo di Brera houses the Pinacoteca di Brera with Andrea Mantegna's masterpice The Dead Christ being one of the better known works on display.
Italy is also the home of ice cream and pizza so while camping in Italy be sure to partake of a few gelatos and sample some pizzas. Open air cafes abound and most offer a high standard of Italian cuisine.
Camping in Italy is a fantastic experience for anyone so go ahead and try it.
