Camping Italy and general Rome questions

Jump to last reply

For my first trip to Italy I am thinking of using a mix of hostels/apartment rentals and campgrounds. Are campgrounds easier to find space in now that it's not super summer or is it harder since I'm reading that this time of year gets to be high season? Or does high season generally apply to lodgings in the cities?

I'm starting off in Rome for about 7 days and making my way north on the train but I basically have 3 weeks in total to spend in Europe and I really want to get a good feel for Italy this time especially Rome. Rooms in the city right now look like they're kind of over my budget. Any good campground recommendations?

I'm also seeing that there's not 24 hour train and bus service anywhere so if I stayed outside the city and wanted to come in and just party on certain nights and go back where I'm staying, what's the best place to leave my bag so I don't carry it around all night? I see the train station has a bag drop but are there showers at the station? Are there pay showers around? Are most toilets pay toilets? Sorry for all the questions but I have no clue what to expect. Any help is appreciated, thanks guys!
