Our Best Campsites In Tuscany
Our Tuscan campsites are well placed for exploring all the wonders that this incredible region has to offer. Stay just outside romantic Florence at the Norcenni Girasole Club, whose tiered campsite in the Arno Valley allows you to make the most of its stunning natural setting.
If you’re more of a sun worshipper, there are plenty of campsites in Tuscany by the beach. Camping Park Albatross is a fifteen-minute walk away to San Vincenzo, which boasts one of the region’s most beautiful sandy stretches.
Things to do when camping in Tuscany
There's plenty of things to do on a camping holiday in Tuscany. Historic and romantic Florence is packed with treasures. The skyline is dominated by the Cathedral (the Duomo), where you can climb up inside the huge dome to see its ornate frescoes and on to the lantern for fabulous views of the city. Be sure not to miss Michelangelo’s David in the Galleria dell' Accademia, either.
At the edge of medieval Pisa is the Campo dei Miracoli - the Field of Miracles - where you’ll find not only the Leaning Tower but also the superb cathedral, the baptistery and the Monumental Churchyard, said to be built on earth brought back from the Crusades.
Amazing as it is, Siena’s ornate gothic cathedral is just part of what was planned - the half-built Duomo Nuovo is testimony to the Black Death that brought building to an abrupt halt in 1348. Be sure not to miss the frescoes and books in the Biblioteca Piccolomini or the unusual relics of St Catherine displayed in the Basilica of San Domenico.
Tuscany’s largest island, Elba is historically known for being the destination of Napoleon Bonaparte’s exile in the 19th century. Explore its sandy beaches and quaint coastal towns or go diving off its shores into Europe’s largest marine reserve.
