This place is dirty. A very bad staff ! When i said that water came inside the tent when it's rain, he was like "I don't care, what do you want that I do ?" That's was a very bad choice. We stayed only one night instead of two.


The worst camping area I ve ever seen. Too dirty tents and showers. And moronic Mosquitos.


It takes a while to go to the campside with the bus nr. 12 or 13 which was a bit strange to find at the station. The campside is very nice and cozy with the tents instead of many campers. The showers and bathrooms are fine but could be a bit cleaner. The location is totally amazing!! 10 min walk from Piazza Michelangelo with a fantastic view over all of Firenze and 20-25 min away from the center of the city. I would definitly reccomend it to others that want to stay in Firenze for cheap money!


Very nice location. Really good value for money,


The staff were extremely rude and unhelpful. The tent was not waterproof when it rained and I had belongings stolen from the common area. All in all, not to be recommended as a place to stay in Flornece.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear Mr, thank You for writing us Your comment. Our clients reviews are the best way for us to improve our services. We are very sorry about the water in the tent, usually our house-tents resist but what we got this summer were real tropical storms we aren't used to. About Your stolen belongings we are very sorry but as You can read either in the common area or in the Reception, people shouldn't leave unattended things around. Therefore we rent electronic lockers. Regards, the Managment


Good views up the top and close enough to town. We only stayed one night so had no problems except we were put in a 3 bed bunk when were meant to be in a double. Good value for money


When we arrived, the room wasnt clean, there were papers and garbage all over the floor, the sheets were not clean either. Great service at the reception, the guy was very helpful and polit, great view. The tents were not safe enough as well, they should offer a locker service.


Really nice, big tents with light inside and locks on the door; no socket though... The toilets were a little disgusting, but acceptable for a camping site. Really nice location with the most beautiful view over Florence - and only walking distance from the City center (around 20 min). Easy to get there by bus also :-) The tents are very noisy though - and we had problems sleeping because of Loud Music from a club next door.


This is so far from everywhere! Not even worth the price as you spend it in transport back and worth. A few people we were there with just left and booked another hotel . Wifi does not work at all. Cold water! Restaurant thing there doesn't open till night. Vending machines don't work.

The view from the terrace was the greatest on our entire round trip of Europe and made it our favourite stop and well worth the walk up the hill. The tents were clean safe and secure and the staff in reception were helpful and answered all of our queries! We hope to return soon.


Wifi didn't work! Showers didn't work either!

This place is quite far from center, however this place is so good and view is really good. But bathroom and toilet are not clean.


There is no electrical charges in tents. Showers suck, they are not clean, wifi like from 2000's. We paid extra money for our table covers! They didnt even said the difference between normal tables and covered tables!


It's really hot in the tents and they don't really keep mosquitos out. Other than that it was pretty good.


Pros: 2 mins from Piazza Michelangelo where you can have the best sight on Florence, great terrace Cons: HUGE lack of outlets (6-7 for all guests) which in my case resulted in no pictures of this wonderful night spent with five girls met at the camping, last morning empty bottles took 5hours to be removed from the table, 10€ for one liter of wine


We had a fairly good stay here, although it is not nearly as nice as their hostel in Venice. When we checked in we noticed a huge hole in the roof of our tent, staff were really accommodating and happy to move us to another tent, which was fantastic. The location is pretty good, 25 min walk into the city or you can take two different buses from the train station which literally drop you at the door of the campsite. The only negatives would be that the bathrooms were not very nice and smelt..


Facilities are not very clean, so I didn't bother even showering while there. Location is excellent--only 20 minutes walking distance from the duomo; 5min from piazza Michelangelo which is great to wander at sunset. There were no lockers--you just hoped your roommates would lock the door when they left. Atmosphere was nice.


The location is perfect, beautiful view, the city is a 10 minute walk away. You could close the tent when going away, the tent was clean. Enough showers and toilets, you never had to wait.


Great location to get away from the city but still walkable! Staff were helpful and friendly. If you dont mind camping and camping type facilities, this is the place for you! However the mosquitos were worse than expected, even with bug spray! Market closed, which was annoying! Pizza great from bar but fairly pricey.


Facilities weren't the best and during our stay the women's got particularly filthy (to be fair we may have just been staying with some very dirty people) If you're young and like the student scene then this would be a good place. Maybe one to avoid if you are travelling with family and young children.
