Alan Rogers Review

Ferrara is an interesting and historic city, well worth a short visit. This pretty municipal campsite on the northern outskirts offers comfortable facilities for all types of units and includes 25 fairly large, grass pitches with numerous electrical connections. Trees are used to provide shade and to screen the site. Unusual concrete portals are covered in roses, shrubs and other flowers giving a cheerful atmosphere. On-site facilities are limited, with machines for snacks and cold drinks, but there is an excellent trattoria within walking distance (1 km) and a wide choice of other eating places in the city itself.

The old city, surrounded by ancient walls, is attractive and mainly pedestrianised, with several museums, a cathedral and a wealth of architectural interest, but as a result of an apparent lack of publicity, has relatively few foreign visitors. The site is good for exploring local attractions, reception staff are professional with English spoken and prices are reasonable. If you have an interest in opera, talk to Christina in reception as she is an accomplished singer with much information on Italian opera.


Two acceptable, adjacent toilet blocks are fully equipped, one heated with British and Turkish style toilets. Separate facilities for disabled visitors. Drink and snack machines. Torches required in places.
