Camping Rialto

I’d found Camping Rialto on the ACSI map and it was €21 a night but being an ACSI member it was only €16. Leccie, showers, laundry and a bus stop right outside the gates, what more could you ask for?

The reception staff were really helpful and friendly with great English and although the pitches are typically much smaller than British ones there was no problem at all. It’s lined with trees everywhere and screened from the road by more trees and bushes. All the services were immaculate and they used standard HU sockets so no adaptor needed.

They sell bus tickets at reception so it was easy to prepare for nights in Venice and although I never used their onsite bar it was pretty busy each evening and everyone sounded like they were having a fun time. A nice site and not charging a rip-off price. I like it.

Taking time out

Some evenings I’m simply walking the streets with the dog, enjoying being in Italy, not even going into Venice sometimes. Other times I go into Venice and walk around aimlessly, it’s very nice there so easy to do. I’ve come out to Jesolo now though as there’s a place to park here that is a bit more deserted and quiet. I’ve got loads of work done, and have decided it’s time for a campsite.

Part of the reason is that I need my mail sending over with my new driving licence, ACSI camping card and a couple of other things. They’ve got full WiFi in with the price so I can save my bandwidth, and I could really use a proper hot shower too… So I emailed a few to get a feel for them and chose camping Rialto. It’s about €21 euros a night including some tourist tax whatever that is. But mains leccie saves me about £22 in petrol over 5 days, and I can get decent showers for a few days too. The bus stop is right outside and it’s still only €2.60 return ticket to Venice as it’s only about a mile or so from where I’ve been staying.

I reckon another 2 weeks here and I may be ready to move on lol
