On the bank of the Arno River, not far from the center of Florence, we can stay at Camp Firenze . This resort has a very good location - it is close to the city, and at the same time it is protected from the sun by lush vegetation. There you can relax in comfortable and comfortably furnished holiday homes or stay in a motorhome on one of the plots.
