Turn left at this bend and you’ll pass between 2 old houses on a bumpy and slightly steep road down to the campsite. At the bottom of this old rustic road you will arrive at “Rocca di Sotto”. Please park the car at the top of the campsite at the parking lot. Tip: if the car is heavily loaded or there are bicycles hanging behind the car, we can help you with our jeep to transport your luggage to the campsite Rocca di Sotto.
