Camping Tuscany - The 5 most beautiful nature camping spots

For camping in Tuscany and the perfect holiday in nature, you need the right campsite. Here are 5 private nature campsites for a Mediterranean camping trip in the sun.

Let's be honest. Camping is great for exactly two reasons: maximum flexibility and time in nature.
However, since free standing is illegal in large parts of Europe, `camping close to nature` requires the right campsites. Especially in popular camping regions such as Italy, these are not easy to find. What usually helps me in my search is Nomady: Here, private individuals make parts of their property available as campsites. So far Nomady has included campsites in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and most recently - and much to my personal delight - also in Italy, because this is where Tuscany is located.

Camping holidays in Tuscany

Travelling by camper van from southern Germany takes just under 8 hours, which is a great investment but can easily be split over several days.
If you do everything right, camping in Tuscany feels like a perfect summer holiday: the Tuscan countryside is quiet, warm, dry and vast. Towns are quiet, full of coffee and cobblestones and there is probably no better place to camp, ride a road bike, read and find peace and quiet.
