Camping in Venice
Here's the description from my travel diary:
....located at the end of a long spit across from Venice. We look across the water and we can see the steeples at St. Marks.
You can walk down to the ferry dock and board for getting to Venice and other islands. It docks 2 minutes around the corner from St. Marks.
When I first start doing research on Venice I thought that it would be impossible to go the camping route, but right away I found that there are quite a few campgrounds just across the water (north) of Venice. The Italians are big on camping and when they go they take everything they can tie onto their cars. Folding tables, chairs, awnings, bicycles, and grandparents all are attached somehow. They stay a month in one spot.
So I am putting this tip out so that others who are campers can see that it is possible. I am not listing a lot of information as it would be better for you to do your research as the conditions in the campgrounds are upgraded and improvements are made such as swimming pools, etc. Most of these campgrounds have websites that show the pool(s) restaurant and even activities for children. You can escape the crowds while enjoying all the Venice has to offer.
There are other campgrounds in this area. Google "camping Venice" and you can see that they rate their campgrounds by up to 5 stars. We saw one that had greeters dressed in white tennis outfits and looked like a resort. Expect swimming pools, etc., this is not like camping in the U.S. forests. We did not stay in the fancy campground, and it looked like you need a reservation.
We have camped in other parts of Italy, and if you want to ask a quesiton about camping in Italy, France, Germany, Holland or Portugal I might be able to help you.
Good luck and happy camping
Unique Quality: Pool, store, restaurant, hot showers, parking
A bit crowded at times.
Directions: My best advice for travel in this area is to get a good map. Make your reservations by internet so that you can choose what kind of campground you want.
The one we stayed at Miramare was what you might term average.
