Italy has always been on my bucket list as a family holiday destination. So when Eurocamp asked us if we’d like to stay somewhere this summer, I had no hesitation and picked Italy.

Taking a day out of poolside lounging and floating on an inflatable doughnut to visit some culture. Just 40 mins drive from Lake Garda is the beautiful city of Verona, most known for the setting of many a Shakespeare play, most famously Romeo & Juliet.
