Camping Holidays in Rome, Italy
Rome has it all: culture, architecture, cuisine, but more than anything it's the perfectly preserved sense of history that leaves the most lasting impression on visitors. The Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and the Vatican are wonders of the Ancient world. And they're all within easy walking distance.
Rome's many bustling squares and piazzas are lined with restaurants and cafes to suit every taste and budget. Sit and watch the world go by as you nurse a super strong espresso, or go large with a three course Italian feast you'll never forget.
Such is the incredible lure of the Eternal City many visitors to the area ignore the surrounding Lazio countryside.
Big mistake! Because the Lazio region has everything from lush grasslands, vineyards and olive groves to coastline and wooded, green hillsides.
Our featured campsite near Rome is I Pini nestling in The Tevere Valley, just 40kms to the North of Rome, and close to a waterpark. I Pini campsite is within easy reach of Lazio's beaches, making it the perfect family setting for a camping holiday near Rome.
