Camping San Nicolò, Lido di Venezia | An Ideal Choice for Families on a Budget

*This is a collaborative post

When you think about planning a trip to Venice, I bet over-priced hotels spring to mind. There are other ways to see this magnificent city though and they don't have to be expensive either. There are some fantastic options for visiting Venice on a budget.

Camping San Nicolò - How to stay in Venice on a budget. The best located  family campsite in the Lido di Venezia area.

Camping San Nicolò is a family campsite located in the Lido di Venezia area, offering budget accommodation with plenty of facilities for families and the best part is, it's within easy reach of Venice with public transport on their doorstep.

Why Camping?


As a family, we adore camping. I love the freedom that camping gives you and how camping forces you to relax into a slower pace of life. When you need to wait 15 minutes for your kettle to boil on the stove for your morning coffee, there's nothing to do but just sit and relax, perhaps with your favourite book and this is a good thing. Our children adore sleeping under the stars too and we have always found campsites to be a fantastic way for them to make friends on holiday - you're with like-minded people and kids just seem to be drawn to each other, even if they don't speak the same language which is nice.

Facilities at Camping San Nicoló


Camping San Nicolò is a small site but it features all of the facilities you need to ensure your Venetian break is as comfortable and memorable as possible. There is a well-maintained play park for children, a bar area to enjoy a few drinks in the evening of coffee in the morning plus showers, washing machines, washing up areas and toilet facilities. If you don't wish to bring your own tent, you can even rent a tent or caravan plus sleeping bags from the site itself and there is the option of electric hook-up if needed. 


In The Area


If you choose to stay at Camping San Nicolò, you will be staying at one of the best-positioned campsites on the Lido. You can easily reach both the magnificent city of Venice and the sandy beach of San Nicolò via public transport. In fact, there is a bus stop directly outside of the campsite.

If you can tear yourself away from the 12 kilometres of sandy beaches, you'll find lots to keep you entertained in the Lido di Venezia area. You can catch a water taxi over to Venice and soak up the culture whilst getting lost in the architecture. Kids will love creating their own Venetian masks and watching the entertainment in Piazza San Marco. Or perhaps you will choose to hire a bike and explore the lido with it's many beaches, pools, gardens and family restaurants.

I'm not going to lie and for me, a trip to Italy would mostly be about the food. One of the things I love about camping is being able to shop for local ingredients in markets and cooking our own dinner in the great outdoors (which would be accompanied by a few glasses of Prosecco in Italy of course). It's a fantastic way to enjoy delicious food from the place you are visiting without the high costs associated with dining out.
