Discovering Venice becomes a magical moment of your journey. After your visits to the famous city, stop at Camping Venezia Village to rest and spend the night.

Destination 3: Puglia by motorhome

Puglia by motorhome is one of the enchanting destinations. Along the Adriatic coast, you will cross roads with Mediterranean decor, valleys and charming fishing villages. The pleasures offered by a motorhome trip in Italy are manifold:

  • the white sand beaches by the Adriatic Sea;
  • the paths of the Gargano natural park;
  • the medieval town of Veste built on a rocky promontory;
  • the Polignano a Mare on the cliff side, a real favorite.

Tips from motorhome operators:

  • spring and autumn are the best seasons to travel around Italy in a motorhome;
  • Italian motorways are limited to 100 km / h;
  • there are many motorhome areas in Italy, free or paid, for parking outside the cities.
  • Be careful with the “Zona à traffico Limitato” (ZTL). These are indicated by a sign on the outskirts of the city center, but are not always very visible. Traffic is generally allowed to public transport and residents. These areas are sometimes accessible during certain hours of the day. Cameras record all license plates that enter it. Be careful, the fine is around 300 euros!
