Canino Village - South West Italy 

 

Canino is a quite village. This is a traditional village with local people, rather than a touristy place.


 

The town has many small shops – butchers and green grocers etc but if you want to go to a supermarket there is a large Co-op just outside town (towards the lake) – just follow the signs.

Trattoria Casperini is in a side street by the main piazza – it is a good place to go.  I also like to go to a pizza restaurant –  Zodiaco – you find it on the left hand side on the road out of Canino (towards the sea).  There is a garden upstairs and the food is good and very, very reasonable.  You can find an excellent restaurant – Arturo/Bruchetta if you go past Zodiaco and turn left by the park. It does not look as though there will be a restaurant there but walk a few minutes and you will see it on the right hand side.  It is not always open so do check.

If you have the Comune di Canino (town hall) on your left and turn left at the end of the street passing under a portal   you find  a square with a popular restaurant at the top end.

Bar Il Giardino (free Wi-Fi) and Bar Centrale are also a popular meeting points.  All the bars are very small and there are a number of old men sitting outside the entire day!

Remember that there is a siesta from 13.00 until 16.00 when the shops are closed.  

There is a lovely swimming pool in Canino where you can buy food and drinks.  Entry is 5 euros for the day.  Sunbeds and parasols are provided.  It is sign-posted  Piscina and you find it by the water tower. You walk towards the sea, past Zodiaco along the park on your left and take the second opening in the wall along the park.

Car Rental

 

These are car rental companies which have used by our clients and they find them reasonably priced and no problems. 

Important advice:

 

When renting a car some companies will pretty much give you the keys to the car and tell you may go. At this point we suggest you go walk round the car and look for defects such as dents, broken aerials, wheel trim scuffs etc. If you see any of these, go back to the sales representative and ask them to note the defects on your sheet. This way when you return the vehicle the previous damage is shown and signed by the representive before you took the car from them.

 

Rental Car.com ( Gold Cars ) - very reasonable rates

 

Europcar - not the cheapest

Getting here from Rome Airport

 

Canino is about 1 ½  drive from Rome.


 

When you get to Civitavecchia do not take the slip-road towards town but stay on the road and follow the signs for Grossetto.  You do not go all the way to Grossetto but keep an eye out for the signs for Tarquinia.  Stay on the E80 and after about fifteen minutes after passing the slip-road to Tarquinia you will pass a two petrol-stations.  Just after the last one the road bends left and there is a sign for Canino and you go straight ahead.   The road is a little rough but you are on right road.  At the roundabout take the second turn right under a pedestrian bridge. Keep to the right and you are on the right road to Canino.

 

When you arrive in Canino you go down into town and then up a slight incline.  On the left hand side (just past a petrol station) as you go up there is a parking place.  You can park for free in any parking place where the lines are white – this is the same everywhere (Yellow and blue  parking lines means you have to pay). You will find different places to park when you get to know Canino.  Something to be aware of is that on Tuesday mornings there is a market – food, clothes, fruit and well everything. The town is full of people and all the goods are very reasonable.  However, the main parking place is closed for the market so make sure you park elsewhere just for that morning.  

The flat is in 65 Via Concordia. After parking the car turn right and walk until you come to Comune di Canino (a very small building that is the town hall).  Turn right down that street until the end of the street – right again until you come to a small piazza with a fountain, a statue of a small dog and Via Concordia is on your left. There is a café in this piazza with free WiFi. Via Concordia is in the historic centre with cobbled streets and you cannot park in the street.  I think this is the easiest way to find the flat for the first time  but you will soon  find quicker routes

Getting here from Pisa Airport

 

Canino is about 3 hours drive from  Pisa.

From Pisa you can take the motorway or drive through Tuscany – a beautiful drive.  It is shorter from Rome of course so if you fly to Rome and hire a car take the E80 going north.  First follow signs for Civitavecchia.  There are two toll stations on the way so make sure you have some euros.  Most of the booths are automatic but some are staffed.  The ones with people serving are at the right hand side and the sign above has a picture of a hand and coins.  The ones without staff have just coins on the sign.
