Wild camping in Italy - is it possible?

Many people like to spend the night "in the wild", which can sometimes be an additional attraction and adventure. Is it possible in Italy? Unfortunately not. The local law prohibits pitching tents or placing motorhomes and caravans in places that have not been adapted for this. For camping "wild" in Italy there is a fine of up to 500 euros. However, there are some exceptions. If the owner of a private property agrees to spend the night on its premises, it can be done.

In the case of "wild" camping in Italy, you have to reckon with inspections. This applies especially to the north of the country and the area of the most touristic cities. It's hard to avoid a fine there. So it's not worth the risk, especially since there are many nice and well-maintained campsites in Italy.
