A new way to find a great Italy vacation

By: Enrico Forte

The first thing to consider is that on the net you could search on thousand of travel website...but the number of the is always the same. So it's better to consider to contact directly the owner or the travel operator to find great deals!Here a list of top tips to find great deals in Italy

  • Book in lower season (Feb-May or Sept-Jan)In these periods accommodations are empty, so it's better for them to attract as much reservations possible. The difference between this can be very sensible (40-50% lower price)
  • Book as much as earlier possibleIf you have to reserve in the high season, it's better to call and reserve your accommodation at least 3 months before. Owner and Receptions tend to cut the prices for early reservations.
  • Choose accommodation far away from the city center. In Italy it's probably to find high prices near the center of the major cities (Rome, Milan, Naples, Catania), so prefer to stay in an accommodation in the province just in the nearby of the city centers.

    Consider that you can move quickly with taxi, bus or train services.
  • Verify the services included and if prices are comprehensive of taxesWhen ask for a price, have a look if that price is tax comprehensive and if it is referred "At person" or for all the group. Usually you can find low prices for the single room service but to receive other important services like transfers, meals etc...you need to add another price.
  • Verify the distance between your accommodation and all attractions you can visit. Cause gas or rentals cost, look in the map of the place you'll visit all the attractions, services and the accommodation location the calculate distances, time and cost of transfers. It's better to verify the presence of taxi, bus or other public transfer too.
  • Buy food in the near marketsTo save up on restaurants prices, buy directly your meals in the near markets and cook in your accommodation. So not only you'll improve you local cooking knowledge, but also you could save up to 30%
  • A Bed and Breakfast is better than a 4 stars hotelWhile travel in Italy, all you need is a place where sleep...think on the attraction you'll visit and the experience!
  • Book directly with the owner of the accommodation, you can negotiate a better price In summary...on the web you can find all information you need to find . The best thing to do is find a local tourist board and search the directory of the accommodation and travel service available. Once found your accommodation you can contact directly the owner and negotiate the price conditions.
