A mile or so from the A1 motorway, Camping International Florence is a good base for exploring the sights of this world-famous Renaissance city. Furthermore, you can take the bus to other nearby cities such as Siena. The bus stop is adjacent to the campsite.

Camping International Florence is unusual in that the reception area is at “street level”, but access to pitches is by a fairly steep access road. Pitches vary in size and some are better than others. Some pitches are fairly flat, whilst others slope in various directions! It turned out that we could not fit on any of the pitches that were available, so we ended up in the coach parking area. That said, we still had electric hook up and so were no worse off for being in the coach park, other than being a bit close to the motorway with the associated traffic noise.

Facilities at Camping International Florence

The amenity block has decent facilities, showers, toilets, laundry facilities and a chemical disposal point. There is also a swimming pool at Camping International Florence but this was closed during our stay. Some people may not like the fact that there are power lines over the site with some pylons in situ.

There is a bus stop about 500 metres from the site entrance. Buses run to Florence, Siena and also to Poggibosni from where a connection to San Gimignano is available. We found the buses to be comfortable but crowded. Consequently, if heading to Siena, it is worth making an early start.

In respect of a return visit to Camping International Florence, then the location sells the site, but the irregular shape and access to some pitches, the steep walk up and down to the bus stop, the pylon and traffic noise might be too off-putting! The site was once a member of ACSI but no longer. You can however check prices and opening dates here
