Camping in Liguria, know how :)

After the post about holiday homes and hotels, I decided to write also about this form of accommodation. Especially because you can find numerous campings in Liguria. Below I list the rules you should know about campings in this region:

Free camping

At first, I wanna start with a free camping. It is allowed or not? The answer is … IT IS NOT CLEAR 😉 There is no rule or regulation that forbids or allows the free camping. So it could look like it is allowed …. however it is possible that if you put your tent in a place that is not a campsite you will take a fine anyway (!!!). So what you are supposed to do in this situation? I called many different municipal offices. They told me that the best thing to do is to go to a local municipality office that is responsible for the area where you want to put your tent and ask them for a written permission for the free camping …

Well, what can I say … I don’t know if all this is worth the effort. First of all, you should know Italian very well cause Italian clerks (99,9% of them) don’t speak in foreign languages. The second thing is that you don’t know how much time they will need to give you a permission (remember that there is no rule or law about free camping). However, if you are lucky and you find a clerk that knows what to do in this case could give you the permission immediately.


The majority of campsites are seasonal. That’s why it is important to check before you come (especially in low season) if your campsite is opened or not. What is more, from November to March the weather in Liguria can be really horrible (this year snowed even in Riviera). So check all these things before you come in Liguria.


The prices are always divided into low season prices and high season prices. Normally the high season begins in June (or June the 15th) and finished in September. The gap between high and low season prices can be very wide (about 30%-50 % or even more). The average prices are: (the first price: low season; second price: high season)

Caravan/camper/big tent:  13€/night; 30€/night

Small camper/small tent: 10€/night; 16€/night

Adults: 5€ pers/night; 13€ pers/night

Children  2-10 years: 3€ pers/night; 6€ pers/night
