Camping Fusina was the perfect place to stay to explore Venice, just a short ferry ride away and the walk to catch the ferry was just a few minutes. The cabins were small but had everything you might need. I loved that there was a restaurant, store and laundry on site. - Anonymous
What sets them apart?
If you're willing to try something a little out of the box, this campground has cabins and bungalows for very cheap prices. It's well outside of Venice (a 20 minute ferry ride), but the atmosphere at night is fun and lively. It's great in the summer if you're looking for a party.
Who's staying here?
This campground really is a mix of everyone. You'll find backpackers, partyers, retirees, and anyone willing to try something a little different. This is also a stopover for Contiki tours, so don't be surprised when the bus pulls up. Their tours are full of young travelers looking to have fun, so if that's what you're interested in, it adds to the atmosphere.
Bring bug spray! This is camping after all, and you're near the coast, so don't be surprised by the mosquitoes.
