The reviews have all been true. The directions given by the campsite to get there, I must definitely say, are terribly unclear. They left out important landmarks, the fact that the campsite is hidden BEHIND a petrol station, and most importantly, no signboards at all. As a tip for future travellers, note that Camping Venezia is NOT located along the main road. From the Hilton Garden Inn hotel's bus stop, look out for a petrol station named "IP". To get to the main entrance u walk in the direction of the Marco airport, past the IP petrol station and then, u will see a gate (on the right) with stones all over the path. For those taking the bus straight from the airport, you have to cross an overhead bridge. You cannot see the campsite at all from the main road, so use your own instincts.
We were lost in the rain for 2hours, walked all the way to Camping Rialto (where we got a lot of help, thanks to them!) and got a cab. Even when the cab arrived at the address, the driver had no idea it was the place! Simply because there were no signboards or even banners to say we have arrived at the correct place. There was nothing, only stones, snails, trees, drains, and un-used cars. THIS is the accurate description of Camping Venezia.
Apart from this, the stay was just normal as I did not expect much from a campsite. Thankfully the showers had hot water. Please also note that their reception closes at 9pm, whereas other campsites are open 24hrs. Which means, if you arrive past 9pm on a night flight, there is NO ONE to help you. We had to flag 2 random cars, 1 of them used his phone to dial the campsite number but no answer. This shows a very bad service that is not reliable. We were on the verge of staying at another campsite but the deposit has already been paid. Please think twice about staying at Camping Venezia if you mind getting lost.
