The best five-star campsites in Italy
Italy's tourist infrastructure is among the best in the world. Hundreds of huge complexes and smaller resorts are just a fraction of the varied accommodation offer. Everyone will find something for themselves from a range of intimate campsites, larger family resorts or huge self-sufficient resorts.
There is a reason why a number of properties located in Italy have four and five-star status. The amenities and comfort they offer attract those tourists who love to relax in the bosom of nature, but do not intend to give up the hotel amenities. Which campsites should you pay special attention to when planning a vacation in Italy?
Camping Barco Reale - a stone's throw from Florence
The first site is approximately 35 km northwest of Florence, right in the center of Tuscany. It awaits holidaymakers surrounded by hills and evergreen forests, ensuring peace and quiet for those who rest. It is an ideal place for families, as well as for people who want to recharge their batteries through the closest possible contact with nature. Accommodation options include luxury tents, mobile homes and vehicle pitches. On hot days, you can cool down in the swimming pool overlooking the nearby vineyards. Children have at their disposal animators who make sure that the little ones have a great time during their stay.
Camping Barco Reale has the four stars it fully deserves. Facilities include a thriving restaurant with delicious dishes and an ice cream shop famous for home-made delicacies. There is also a supermarket on the premises where we can buy fresh bread and all the necessary products for self-catering. The campsite bar offers great drinks, perfect for hot weather (but they also taste delicious in the evening).
Guests like the resort not only because it is so well-equipped. Its location is also its advantage - it is a great starting point for nearby attractions. It has a bike rental service, so cyclists can explore the area on two wheels, even if they haven't taken them on vacation. It is worth it, because there are many nice bicycle paths around. Apart from that, Florence is nearby and it is easy to reach by car and by public transport.
You can take your four-legged friend to the camping - it is pet-friendly.
Camping Union Lido - a holiday in the shadow of Venice
Another facility on our list is Camping Union Lido, located in the Cavallino-Treporti commune. Venice is just around 18 km away. The history of the complex dates back to the 1950s, when a place for tents was made available to tourists by a narrow strip of the sea. A lot has changed since then. Nowadays , camping is not a modest campsite , but an impressive complex. On its territory there is practically everything that can provide a vacation of a lifetime. And this is not an exaggeration at all.
What makes this five-star center come to people from all over the world? In addition to a diverse accommodation base, enabling a comfortable stay for couples (including seniors), families with children, groups of friends and animal lovers, Camping Union Lido made sure that guests have access to many amenities. Excellent dishes in the rich restaurant menu, professional animators, numerous points for renting leisure and recreational equipment, amazing water parks and swimming pools, beautiful beaches at your fingertips, Spa & Wellness services ... Long list of attractions that can be used by the guests of the complex.
Holidaymakers can explore the area on their own and participate in organized trips. Willing people will see, among others Venice, discover the charms of Cavallino, go to local markets and learn about regional monuments. The choice is really big.
It is also worth mentioning the option for lovers. Coming to the campsite can be combined with organizing a wedding or renewing the marriage vow in a very romantic setting - on a private beach.
Marina di Venezia - even closer to Venice
Marina di Venezia is actually the gondola's vestibule, because we are only 11 km from the center. People who have decided to book accommodation in this facility will be fully satisfied with its offer, as well as be charmed by the views. They will remember the sunsets over the crystal clear sea for the rest of their lives.
The five-star resort is distinguished by an extensive accommodation base, and also has excellent sanitary and water facilities. From April to mid-October, vacationers can stay overnight in their own vehicle (several hundred plots), in a tent or in a hotel room. Marina di Venezia also invites caregivers with pets - it is a pet-friendly facility. An attractive addition worth mentioning is the private jacuzzi at the Aqua Lodge option. In addition, glamping is becoming more and more popular among guests. It is not surprising if we look at modern houses finished to the highest standard. They are especially loved by couples and families with children.
Marina di Venezia is situated right by the sea and surrounded by a pine forest. It provides guests with full culinary facilities (restaurants, bars) and the possibility of practicing sports (sports fields, water equipment rentals). Fans of cycling or walking tours have kilometers of trails to discover the beauty of Cavallino-Treporti.

You do not need to look for care for your four-legged friend during the holidays, but go ahead and take him with you to this beautiful place.
As with the previous facilities, sightseeing enthusiasts who want to get to know as much as possible during their stay will find themselves here without any problems. You can go on a trip, among others to Venice, Padua, and nothing stands in the way of hopping on a bike and going on the trails. On your own or rented one, you can travel kilometers of routes that lead to the most beautiful corners of the region.
Camping Village Ca'Pasquali - the kingdom of tents
Cavallino-Treporti is a unique place, not only because of the neighborhood of Venice, but also because of its fabulous beaches and crystal clear water. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that a large part of our list is occupied by centers from this region. Camping Village Ca'Pasquali is part of the canon of comfortable, worth visiting complexes.
The five-star facility is famous for its luxurious tents. We can find here fully equipped Lodge or Airlodge tents, suitable for both couples and families with children. The standard includes a kitchen, living room, bedrooms and an outdoor area.

There are catering facilities (bars, shops, etc.), a zone with swimming pools (for adults and children), a games room and sports fields as well as a wide range of animations waiting for guests.
The complex is situated next to the beach. This means that everyone who cannot imagine a holiday by the Italian sea without practicing water sports or relaxing on a sunbed will be delighted with their stay.
Sant'Angelo Village - full comfort of rest
Another center that we will focus on is Sant'Angelo Village . It is surrounded by the Cavallino-Treporti beaches, about 20 km east of Venice.
Its offer is directed primarily to families, but couples in love, singles or groups of friends will also not complain. The accommodation base includes comfortable cottages, luxurious hotel rooms and fully equipped plots.

The evenings will be made more pleasant by attractive animations or fun until dawn to the rhythms of music. Camping enthusiasts will also like walking and cycling - many routes lead to the surrounding monuments or charming places. Those who wish to travel further and explore the region can go on excursions around the Venetian Lagoon or visit Venice itself.
Centro Vacanze Villaggio San Francesco Caorle - in the shadow of Caorle
When it comes to camping, Italy has a lot to be proud of. Especially when we are talking about magnificent camping towns, which often offer guests more than many hotels. Such an object is located in the Caorle area. This is the five-star Centro Vacanze Villaggio San Francesco , located less than 9 km from the resort.

Villaggio Turistico Internationale - Bibione area
The last campsite on our list (which does not mean that it is not very crowded) is located near Bibione, in eastern Italy. Villaggio Turistico Internationale has four stars, but does not differ in the level or number of amenities from its five-star predecessors.
First of all, it is a place where children will not be bored even for a moment. Waiting for them include playground, kids club, animation team with lots of ideas and many, many other attractions. The slightly older ones can try their hand at water sports (windsurfing school) or devote themselves to physical activity on the sports fields (football, tennis, basketball etc.). In addition, there is a complex of swimming pools on the premises, which can be used by both children and adults. Villaggio Turistico Internationale is located directly on the beach, so lovers of sunbathing or lounging under an umbrella can indulge in blissful relaxation a stone's throw from the campground.
The accommodation offer of the facility includes comfortable mobile homes and cozy bungalows. Fans of outdoor recreation can pitch a tent on one of the many shaded lots, and people with their own vehicle can park on a spacious parking lot. Vacationers from the second group have access to full water, electricity and sewage facilities.

Well, isn't it worth personally convincing that a holiday by the warm sea of southern Europe is a great idea?
