Budget Holidays in Italy

By: Keith Barrett

As with many locations, you'll find that it is cheapest to visit Italy outside of the peak summer months. This is actually wise for other reasons too - the Italian cities tend to be swelteringly hot during the months of July and August.

Many complain that Italian hotel prices are high compared to other locations and that standards can be variable. It's certainly true that accommodation prices in the big cities are on a similar level to those that you might expect to experience in London, Paris or New York.

The reasons for such prices are clear: cities such as Florence, Venice and Rome attracts visitors from all over the world, due to the unique experiences that they offer.

If you want to reduce the cost of your holiday in Italy then one way to go about it is to make use of an escorted tour operator.

Escorted holidays usually include the cost of your travel from the UK to Italy, as well as your accommodation once you reach Italy.

You can also expect to get at least one meal per day included in the cost of your holiday, while the inclusion of an experienced English-speaking guide can transform your holiday, allowing you to make the most of your visit to the country.

Most escorted holidays companies rely on customers returning to make use of their services on a regular basis. Indeed, it's not uncommon for travellers to opt to use the same travel specialists on an annual basis.

As a result of their need to maintain a good reputation and attract returning custom, escorted holiday specialists tend to pick hotels of a high quality.

The end result often means that Italian escorted holidays offer real value, providing a great alternative to the stress and cost involved in attempting to book your holiday independently.

A further advantage to using such a service is that you'll be able to choose an itinerary that allows you to visit a number of cities within Italy during your stay in the country.

Such flexibility can help to maximise the potential of your visit to this wonderful country.
