About US Army Garrison Italy – Camp Darby
Camp Darby is located in the Tuscan region of central Italy between the cities of Livorno and Pisa. The installation is about a 10-minute drive to the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Camp Darby is 60 miles from the city of Florence, which is the home of Michelangelo’s statue of David masterpiece.
The Mission of Camp Darby is to provide logistical support for combat deployments which primarily includes reserve storage and maintenance of weapons, equipment, and vehicles. The military post was formally dedicated as a permanent U.S. Army installation in 1952, and was formally named in memory of the Brigadier General William O. Darby, who served as the Assistant Division Commander of the 10th Mountain Division.
Frequently Asked Questions
AER 190-16 prescribes the policy, responsibilities and procedures for granting access to U.S. Forces installations in the European theater by using the Installation Access Control System (IACS). A copy of identification must be submitted with every request. A photo copy of all adult individual(s) passport(s) or Military ID card(s) will suffice. Persons under the age of 18 are not required to have a form of identification submitted.
For those personnel assigned in the USAREUR/USAFE footprint that have installation access granted in IACS throughout USAREUR/USAFE, access will be similar to that on your home-installation.
Individuals without a valid CAC, including Embassy personnel and diplomats, British military stationed in Italy, NATO serving in Italy or other DoD Identification Card, should be placed on the local Darby Military Community Access Roster. Failure to do so will result in substantial delays or possible denied entry to installation.
At check-in to lodging, you must present a rabies certification for your pets. Pets must always be on a leash. Lodging costs for pets are at your own expense
