Campsites in Italy

Camping La Futa, Passo della Futa, Firenzuola
A fantastic site, terraced and grassy with some hard-standing.  You can't really beat the beautiful views over the hills from all the pitches.  There are good hot showers and plenty of hot water in the clean facialities.  Free wifi is available at the bar.  Bread can be ordered, useful as its a long way to any shops and a few basic groceries are sold.  The owners are helpful and friendly.

Camping Boschetto di Piemma, San Gimignano
A well organised site with modern and clean facilities and plenty of hot water.  Some trees on the site provide shade.  Wifi is available at 3 euro per hour.  The site provides easy access to San Gimiignano, either by bus, bike or walking (15-20 minutes).  The site restaurant is excellent and is used by locals, as well as campers.

Camping Feniglia, Laguna di Orbetello
The pitches are marked, but very crowded.  The facilities are dated and scruffy and there is no hot water for washing up.  An extra charge is made for hot showers.

Valle Gaia Casale Marittimo, near Cecina
A large and well equipped site with very good sanitary facilities.  There is good shade for the majority of the pitches, but we stayed on a higher level pitch with less shade, but better views.  Wifi is available at 2 euro for three hours and can be accessed from some pitches or from the bar and pool areas.  The site has swimming pools, cafe, restaurant and shop.

River Village Camping, Ameglia
Lots of tree cover and a scruffy and unkempt looking site.  The toilets were clean.  Free wifi can be accessed around the bar.

Camping Sole Langhe, Vergne, near Barolo
A small green site in a village with a shop selling bread and groceries five minutes walk away.  The facilities are very clean and good.  Wifi costs 3 euro as a one off charge.  The pitches are marked and a good size.

Campeggio Valle Gesso, Entracque
This site is in a lovely position.  It is a large site with marked pitches and a lot of permanent caravans, but these are separate from the touring pitches.  The facilities are clean, but a little shabby and coins are needed for showers.  The owners are friendly and in high season they open more modern facilities.  It is about 15 minutes walk in to Entracque, which has some small shops; otherwise bread can be ordered at the camp site.
