Contact the hotels directly

Hotel in Italy

It’s a known fact that well-known and popular websites offering hotel reservations take their fee for being a mediator. Use them to find the option you like and then try to email the hotel or visit their own website and check their prices. You may find the same deal at a lower price.

Discover Italian’s agriturismo

Since many Italian families have farms located in picturesque regions all around the country, why not stay closer to the real Italian life and stay in a special accommodation for guests. This may cost you around 40 euros per person depending on a farm location and the services included such as fresh home-made meals, guided walks and horse riding. This option is perfect for family holidays allowing children to spend time with animals and staying outdoors.

Search whether there is a camping available in your destination

Camping Italy

Usually, camping is in a fenced area on the city outskirts allowing tourists to stay in tents, small houses or caravans and motorhomes. There are all necessary facilities and prices that will surprise many unfamiliar with this travel option. One night stay in a small house may cost around 15 euros.

Stay in hostel

Hostels are small and convenient places with a friendly atmosphere and low prices. There are rooms for one person only or the options for several people.
