Camping Village Internazionale Firenze
Reviewed April 20, 2012

My wife and i stayed here in mid April 2012 in a cabin up on the hill with free car park. Staff spoke english which is appreciated, friendly enough. This place has its own eatery and mini mart if you want snacks or a drink. To get into the heart of Firenze buy a bus ticket at reception and walk a leisurely 15 minutes to the bus stop, catch #37 which takes you to the train station as its last stop in around 15 minutes, but we found it much easier to push the stop button as soon as we saw Ponte Vecchio and get off near there. Catch #37 back again from various points around town. The toilet and shower blocks are clean and welcoming. The self contained cabins with toilets and showers are cabins #1 through to #7 (possibly more cabins than that but unsure). The reason why we chose to stay here is because we travelled by car and parking (and driving) inside Florence is diabolical and Camping Michelangelo appeared to noisy for us due to partying and disco noise going to the early hours of the morning.

Room Tip: Contiki buses bring youths here, but still not as bad as camping michelangelo

Me and my girlfriend have been there for two nights in last June. It seems far away, but there is a comfortable bus that brings you straight to the heart of Florence (public bus, unfortunately the camping does not offer bus service to downtown). The place was full of Dutch (the kings of camping) and Americans in their twenties - this not being good or bad, just for letting you know. Quite at night, although a bit uncomfortable since the tent ground is on a hill so you naturally lose grip slightly when you sleep - not a major problem though. bathrooms were large and well equipped. Reception was fine and mutlilingual.

Simply go there, Camping Michelangelo charges almost double just for the location.

This camping was told to be noisy and over-crowded and we found out that it was peacefull, not that crowded and VERY clean ! We've appreciated the shop, the restaurant with the bar and the fact that the bus stop is not too far and is very handy to go to Florence. We'll go there again when we're around.

We stayed in what they call "mobile home" . Sort of a Cabin or transportable. Very Clean. 55 Euro a night for two including bedding and a/c.
Nice park, not far from florence. There is a direct bus to Florence with the last one at 11.30pm.
When we rang to book, the man was very helpful and gave us road directions from where we were driving to the camp. This made the finding easy. The woman at reception spoke English and French as well. They provided oodles of information and advice without us asking. Wonderful. This camping is left in a natural state and is on the side of the hill with different levels. The deli/restaurant in the camp has pay wi-fi. Buying the time at reception is cheaper. The camping ground has lots of chalets, it is big but because of the trees and bush setting does not feel crowded. I recommend it.

My wife and I stayed in a "Twin Private Ensuite" for two nights as a part of an extended road trip. As such, we had our car and bicycles with us. This is helpful because the camp is probably too far from the Florence city center for most tastes - although buses appear to be a suitable means of transport. We were very pleased with the accommodation for the price we paid and given the perfect proximity to our scheduled "I Bike Italy" tour, which happened to assemble right on the camp grounds. Our room accommodation was a mobile trailer with duplex units. We had no neighbor as most folks appeared to occupy the lesser expensive camping or shared restroom facilities. The unit seemed brand new, had twin beds (with a bunk available for a third), a private bathroom with great hot water and water pressure, air conditioning, a small refrigerator and lots of shelves for storage. We were provided towels, linens, soap and toilet paper. Laundry machines are available on site at a cost of 5 euro per load but you need soap which can probably be purchased at the mini market. There is a mini market and restaurant on the site, but both are expensive. There is a pool that looked nice but we did not use it. Many bus tours make use of the site so there were a lot of people but it did not feel overwhelmingly crowded. Wireless internet is supposedly available in the restaurant area at a hourly or daily cost, but we did not try it out. Parking is ample and free. They do close their gates at night so be sure to confirm those hours.

We had booked for a week in a chalet with air-con. We found the trek to city centre fine (6mins walk and 20mins by bus) but the times that we were given were wrong! (And buy a card rather than single tickets!). We did not stay to eat as we found the food overpriced. Instead we ate at the local pizzeria/restaurant, that was populated mostly by locals. We were mostly apprehensive of the noise as a few reviews said that some could hear either the motorway or the contiki club. But we heard no noise after 11pm. (Even before there was no disturbances). The swimming pool is well attended, clean and they sell swimming hats on site.

So far it was the worst place I have stayed in Italy; it was also the most expensive camping I've seen there. The location is not as good as the website claims: to get to the historic center of Florence you need either to drive for about 15-20 minutes to the parking and then walk for another half an hour, or to walk to the bus stop, take a bus, which passes not so often, and then walk again. In May the camping was crowded; the rest area near the restaurant always had loud music on, that became only louder after 10pm, when many teenagers were hanging out there. We reserved the place for our tent and car well in advance, but our tent was locked between several campers and there was not more then a few square meters of space. Of course, being so stuffed, the camping cannot be quiet or peaceful. They have a swimming pool, but swimming caps are obligatory - I did not know about that, and a man from the personnel rudely shouted at me before I even entered the swimming pool area. If you don't have a cap, you have to buy one for 30 euros. They have wi-fi internet, but it is more expensive than in internet cafes in town, and very slow. The food store is twice as expensive as most stores around. The only nice thing I can say is that the guy who met us at the entrance was polite and helpful.
Note that there's plenty of free camping space just outside their gate, as well as a few km south across the freeway, in forest meadows.

Room Tip: Avoid this place
