We found this site on the Camper Contact – Parking app. 11 euros a night.
Agriturismo La Cerra was a really lovely campsite site which was about 6km outside of Tivoli. We drove up through Tivoli then further up the mountains to the campsite. The road was very narrow in places with hairpin bends to get to it but it was worth it for the views while we were there.
The bus stopped outside the campsite (down a steep hill) which went into Tivoli for the Villa D’Este Gardens.
It was so peaceful on the site even though there was so much there, I expect it was because it was so spread out. The resort also had brick built holiday cottages, it was a farm and an equestrian centre. The restaurant caters for large functions like weddings and a stop off for coaches with lunch. (although we only saw one or two coaches while we were there when we happened to go down to the reception).
It was lovely to see the beautiful peacocks strutting about showing off. There were 4 that we could see. There were also chickens, goats, cows and geese all wandering about the yard which we had to pass through to get to the reception and restaurant.
The reception was very helpful when we asked about getting into visit the Villa D’Este and assured us that we would be ok to drive in and that there would be plenty of parking for a motorhome. Unfortunately, the next day was market day and there was so much traffic with all the car parks full that we had to take the motorhome back and got the bus in from outside the campsite after lunch.
Please note that you can’t buy bus tickets on the bus you need to buy them from a tobacconist. The reception had not told us this and the bus driver would not take our money. We made sure we had a ticket for the return journey but in this part of Italy there is very little English spoken in the shops and we had trouble making ourselves understood. Eventually, an Italian gentleman came in who spoke a little English and helped us out.
