We are planning to drive down to Venice on Saturday (we were going yesterday but I hurt my knee and have another hospital appt. on Friday) and would like help with finding a campsite. We are a family of three two adults and a seven year old. We live in Switzerland and have a tent and the stuff that goes in it. I have found a couple of places but they advertise that they rent out tents. As we have our own we wouldn't need it.
So, personal rec's please.
Thanks in advance

There is one campsite near Mestre that is really nice, easily surpassing Italian general standards. I forgot the name though, and last time I was there was over 10 years ago. It was a 20 minute bus ride away from Venezia SL, bus stop *on* the campsite.

I think the campsite you're thinking of is Camping Fusina, a 20min ferry ride to Venice: http://www.campingfusina.com/home.1.html

I have stayed in the cabins and they were fine, good facilities and next to the ferry to Venice that goes/returns every hour.

Thank you both very much. We intend to go to the one you recommended and hopefully it will be OK, a couple of nights in Venice then drive down to Croatia. Happy days.
