A little bit noisy due to trains and traffic but this is bang in the centre of Pompeii

Camping Spartacus is located close to the A3 motorway, south of Naples. The site is very easy to find from the motorway and is clearly sign posted. We had made a provisional email booking at Camping Spartacus. During our planned stay, there is another Italian public holiday. As a result, we were concerned that campsites may have been full to over flowing. I had indicated the size of the motorhome and in full credit to the staff on site, a “piazzola riservato” sign had been placed on a large pitch.
Facilities at Camping Spartacus
Like most campsites these days, Camping Spartacus offers a toilet/shower block, (somewhat dated compared to some sites) laundry, internet access point and also an onsite bar/pizzeria, although this was closed during our stay. There are also small bungalows available for rent, and these did seem to have a never-ending stream of visitors. These visitors stayed half hour or so and left, then the cleaners changed the bed linen in the bungalows!
There is a Carrefour supermarket within easy walking distance of Camping Spartacus. A little further away is a huge Auchan hypermarket.
Pompeii is of course famous for the ruined city, destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius. The modern-day Pompeii offers hotels, restaurants and shops and even a McDonalds!
We used Pompeii as a base to explore the local area, taking a train to Sorrento, a bus to Vesuvius and also visiting the ruins.
There is some noise from the nearby train line, although this did not bother us too much. The noise from the train may be worse on some pitches than on others.

There is however something worthy of a mention, that we have not seen before on a campsite. Imagine a scenario, car pulls up at reception, woman wearing a very short skirt and high boots gets out, pays some money, gets back into the car. Car and both occupants make their way to one of the “bungalows”. A short time later, the car and occupants leave the site. Soon afterwards, member of staff makes their way to the bungalow, complete with fresh bed linen in a supermarket trolley. This is ongoing, all day, day in and day out!
