With over 46 million tourists visiting every year, Italy is the fifth most visited country in the world and it's not difficult to understand why. Italy is one of those places where life and art go together effortlessly, ans is evident in its rich history, art, culture and of course, the Italian cuisine. With more World Heritage sites than any other country in the world, motorhome hire in Italy gives you the flexibility to travel as extensively or as leisurely as you desire, and with so much to see, why wouldn't you?
So which motorhome is the best choice for your Italian motorhome hire tour? That largely depends on the size of the company you plan to travel with and where you want to go. If you are planning on a romantic break with a loved one, then the classic campervan with high- or pop-top roof is a cosy and often more economical choice. Planning on the family road-trip holiday of a lifetime? Then a motorhome with full kitchen and bathroom facilities will provide you with that extra level of comfort needed for longer tours. If a skiing holiday in the Italian Alps is what you're after, then at Campanda we have a good range of fully winterised vehicles suitable for snowy and icy roads.
However you are planning on arriving into Italy, many of our partner rental companies offer an airport or train station pick-up service, making it possible to be on the road en route almost as soon as you arrive.
Taking in the big cities is popular on any motorhome hire holiday in Italy, and Italian cities vary considerably in their diversity. A tour of Italy wouldn't be complete without taking in Rome, Venice or Florence, all of which are in the central-northern regions. But don't let this be at the expense of southern gems such as the teeming city of Naples, which is a car journey away from the ancient ruins of Pompeii and the breathtaking Amalphi coastline.
All major cities have dedicated camping grounds located nearby where you can park up your motorhome and make use of the power hook-up and sanitary facilities. Most sites include on site entertainment and convenience facilities, such as a swimming pool, bar and restaurant and shop, and with many cities located close to the coast, chances are you'll have the beach on your doorstop too. You can leave the motorhome behind for the day and use public transport to reach city centres, avoiding the often difficult and expensive task of locating a parking place.
The warm climate is of course one of the primary factors which makes Italy such a popular European destination. But being home to the 'sunny side' of the Alps and the Dolomites also makes Italy a great choice for a camping-skiing holiday, and without the crowds of Switzerland. With the prices of many hotels going up the closer you get to winter sports resorts, hiring a motorhome can save you a considerable penny on accommodation and dining out. So whether you're attracted to Italy for the romance and scenery, the cuisine and wine, or the slopes and the sea. The real advantage of having a motorhome at your fingertips is that you have the freedom to explore any and all of these, and at your own leisure.
