Hi All,

I recently posted about Italy and had a few people using the thread for some full on banter about how good and bad Italy is. All I am after if possible is a selection of Free wilcamping places throughout Italy. We will use some campsite but we are travelling full time around Italy and wish to do it as cheaply as possible.

Any help or advice is gratefully received.

Kind regards

Nathan

Hi,

We are planning to do the same so we would be very pleased to be able to share the information you gather. We also want to go to Sardinia!

Have a really good trip.

Kind regards

Italy - in our view, it has some of the best of europe, and some of the worst (so far!). We loved a load of it, hated another part of it, but overall really enjoyed it and will go back.

For wild camping, consider buying "guidacamper" which is the Italian aires guide.

Also on my site (linked in sig, and linked in download section here) my GPS databases cover Italy for Aires (also look at campingcar info downloads if you want photos etc). Also all our wild camping spots were noted and referenced (GPS on site again).

The usual ACSI/Camping cheque help if you are going off peak - Camping Flamingo for Rome (camping cheque 14 pn instead of 30-40). Venice, free at Treviso (nice by itself) and get the train in. Pompei you have cheap site outside, and Herculenium also worth a visit. Our blog may help you see what is there.

Enjoy!

Hiya Nathan
We were in Italy last March and June (travelling to and from Greece). CAn't really give you any particular spots but we found a few inland villages had places to park. We kept ourselves tucked away as best we could and didn't have any problems. Coast is more difficult. There are Lidos everywhere hogging the best beaches and parking is quite restricted. However, don't be dispondent it is possible in some places.
We loved Italy, the drivers are bonkers but it's all part of their culture isn't it.
Have a wonderful time.
Julie

Take a look at GreenStop24: GreenStop24 - Caravanning in the countryside, 24 hour free parking, hospitality, friendliness, friendship (http://www.greenstop24.it/inglese/index_Ing.php)

It works like the France Passion system where you can park for free on farms & vineyards.

We usually drive fairly quickly through Italy en route to the ferry for Greece at Ancona. We stopped last year at Fontanellato heading south towards Parma. It was a free area da sosta though the loos weren't open, we could empty the loo and get water. It was very quiet but off the motorway. We mistakenly stopped at Parcheggio Fontanellato on the motorway but realised it wasn't where we wanted to be. It was very quiet though near the north side of the motorway.

just back from a great 3 months in Italy!! Went from Venice in the north down to Sicily round the island and then round the southern coast and back up through Puglia and then stopped in a few Umbrian / Tuscan places.

Wild camped most of the time and didn't pay mostly to park. However many places we stopped do charge for overnighting in the south. Please pm me if you want further info.

Thanks.

There is a great aire type thingy near venice close to the water bus directly in. It was around 14euro a night when we went but that was in high season and it included secure parking/electric and full facilities. It was much better than most of the campsites we stayed on.

I can dig out the location if your heading that way

There are some Italian stops in Camperstop Europe.

We have only been to Northern Italy, found some good places out of this book

Bob - thanks mate, that would be very useful as Venice is on my "Must-see" list and secure overnight parking there would be very useful being a city.

I don't have the exact coordinates with me at the mOment but the town was called punta sabbioni and the site called "parking Dante alighier" near there was also one of the Italian aires but it was full and not secure.

If you can't find that on google maps let me know and il find the coordinates.

Hi to everyone, just joined today and must say I am very impressed. Anyway, just to let you know that I am actually living in Sardinia and it really is truly beautiful, you will not be disappointed! I am in fact bringing my MH (weather permitting) in January and intend to tour the entire island and cant wait! luckily here even the winter months are quite warm and so wild camping should be quite pleasurable. 25 degrees today (Tues 18/10/11). I am not sure as to whether there are plenty of wild camping spots but often see many MH parked overnight on the beaches of Bosa. I will endeavor to keep all informed of area's found around the island. I hope you all try and come and visit this beautiful island and enjoy it as much as I do. Ciao Ciao

Hi nathan


We were in Italy on part of our three months tour.On way to Venice we stopped at super market for food on return to van we found back tyre
puntured and while changing tyre our bag and passports were stolen from cab. This in turn cut short our holiday as you can only return on temp passports.This theft is common in Italy I was told and how lucky we did not confront them as they used a knife on my tyre.

Good luck Snowbirds
