Camping Tiber is easy to find and affords easy access to central Rome. The campsite is close to the Rome ring road and just a few miles from the city centre.We had not made a reservation at the site, and in fact had intended to stay elsewhere, but due to conflicting price information at the first site we visited in Rome, we left and headed for Camping Tiber instead.
On arrival, we received a warm welcome and also a map of the site and another of central Rome. The duty receptionist also provided other information as required and spoke excellent English. However, I did ask to converse also in Italian.
On site facilities include two toilet/shower blocks, one of which has piped music playing, a bar/bistro, shop and a dedicated dog wash/shower area! Furthermore, there is an easy to access motorhome service point. The showers offer an endless supply of hot water and the showers operates at a decent pressure. In addition to camping pitches, there are also bungalows for rent.
Pitching at Camping Tiber
Most, of not all the pitches are on grass. Many are under a heavy covering of trees. Despite very heavy rain during our stay, the ground remained reasonably firm and we were able to drive on and off the pitch without too much difficulty – just a little care. Fresh water taps were dotted around the site.
Our trip into central Rome was very straight forward indeed. At the time of our stay, there was a FREE shuttle bus from the campsite to the train station at Prima Porta. The journey by bus was a matter of minutes. From Prima Porta station, we took the train to Fiaminio station in central Rome. In Rome, we made use of the Metro system as required. Our ticket cost us 4.00 euro – this included the train fare, use of the underground/Metro and also buses in Rome. On arrival back at Prima Porta station, we walked back to the campsite and this took about 20 minutes.
Later in the year, I am hoping to visit Italy again and will certainly look to staying at the same caravan site.
