We are off to Italy in September, we would like to stay for few days outside Rome. Only problem may be we are taking our Pointer with us.

Is it possible to find a site near to Rome with bus/rail link into Rome ? and is it possible to travel on bus/rail with a dog ?

We stopped at this Sosta just outside the old city walls and near the Cattacombs. Catch the bus from outside the site and it takes you to the Coliseum in about 10 to 15 minutes. The bus runs every 20 minutes and is on a circular route so you get back on at the same stop as you got off of to go back to the Sosta. From the Coliseum you can walk to many of the other sites (Rome was smaller than I thought) or catch the Metro to the Vatican on the other side of the river.

We stayed at Camping Village Flaminio, www.villageflaminio.com/en/ (takes ACSI) pleasant and well-shaded but quite busy, probably due to being close to a station with very regular trains into the centre of Rome, about 15 mins if I remember correctly. Apart from doing the open-top bus tour, which we always find useful wherever we go, we walked everywhere - yes Rome isn't as big as you think.

We left our pooch in the van, it was well-shaded and frankly dragging him around Rome would have been a nightmare, for us and him - luckily he's quite happy with this. The proximity of the station meant we travelled twice into Rome, thus not leaving him for too long and not totally exhausting ourselves either.
