Alan Rogers Review
Situated in former parkland, under mature trees providing plenty of welcome shade in summer, Camping Aquileia, with 115 level, grass touring pitches, is a quiet site 10 km. away from the bustling coastal beaches. The pitches, all with 4/6A electricity, are separated from the entrance, swimming pool and play areas by tall hedges, and the more peaceful part of the site with the newer sanitary block is at the rear of the site. The now small town of Aquileia, founded in 181 BC, became one of the most important Roman military and trading posts and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the basilica, only a short walk from the campsite along the former harbour, lays one of the world’s most magnificent mosaic floors.
The campsite is popular with families and for those who seek a quiet base from which to visit the beaches or tour this interesting region. From reception, tours can be organised with the town’s tourist office to the region’s archaeological sites, and not surprisingly a weekly mosaic course is also on offer.
