To Find Site:- Leave Rome ring motorway at junction 6 ( take special care as junction 5 and 6 are very close together and you have to pull off the motorway as others are trying to join!) and follow signs to Prima Porta and then follow signs to campsite. When entering campsite through arch, pull over to lefthandside and report to reception.

Camping Tiber is on the northern side of the Rome ring motorway near to Prima Porta and is situated alongside the river Tiber and is an oasis of calm compared to the frantic suburbs outside the campsite. Like many City sites it is busy with a regular turn round of units as people tend to make relatively short stays. Reception staff are helpful and friendly and all speak excellent English.  It is a large site with about 300 touring pitches which are all on grass. Size varies but there are some good sized pitches around if you have the choice. There is one long road through the site from reception and the pitching areas come off this road beyond the permanent accommodation which makes the touring areas a little quieter as they are further away from the very good bar/restaurant.  Apart from touring pitches the site has a variety of other accommodation including mobile homes, more basic lodges and a Bunk House. The site is also used by coach tour operators who use the campsite accommodation rather than the camping. Electric connections are by way of CEE17 blue plugs and are rated as 6 amps. A longer lead might be required for some pitches. Water points are dotted around the site but the only options for grey water waste is either the chemical emptying facilities at the main toilet block or at the motorhome service point. Both some way from the furthest pitches. There are two toilet blocks, the main one being at the dividing point between the statics and touring pitches and this one houses the washing machines and dryers. The second, smaller, block is further into the site. Both are of a good standard and contain seated pedestal toilets with toilet paper provided. The site has a small swimming pool in which swimming caps are required. Internet is available for free in the bar but the site also has pay for WiFi and passes can be purchased from reception. Unfortunately it has very limited cover and not the 80% as claimed. Opposite reception is a site shop with a fairly comprehensive select of basics. During our stay several rallies were taking place. During the low season the site accepts the ACSI Card which offers considerable savings on normal prices. Date of stay late June.

The main purpose for visiting this campsite is its proximity to Rome. The campsite provides a regular free shuttle bus service to and from the local station at Prima Porta, from here the train takes you directly to Flaminio Station in Rome which takes about 20 minutes. From here you can connect with the Rome Metro.(please take care of personal security when travelling on the Rome Metro) Tickets for these services are available from either reception or the site shop. You can of course use the site to explore other places around Rome but be aware that the traffic is often quite manic and signing not brilliant! There is a shopping centre, with an Auchen supermarket, about five miles from the site. There is a handy Garden Centre which also sells lots of other things next door to the campsite. The immediate environs of the campsite are not particularly attractive.
