Italy Hotels

Italy's architecture and countryside are perhaps its two greatest assets. Depending on which of these piques your interest, you can choose to stay in a hostel, hotel, or vacation on a farmhouse ("agriturismo").  Use the sites below to uncover your options and settle your arrangements.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • One option you might not have considered is agriturismo, a type of farmhouse vacationing. The Italian government began sponsoring agriturismo in 1985 as a way to preserve rural traditions and economies. Agriturismo can open the door to the serene pleasures of the Italian landscape and the best of local produce, with the added bonus that your money helps to maintain the environment. See the links below for more information.
  • If you're planning on backpacking, know that hotels and hostels in Italy are often fully booked. When you can, make arrangements in advance.
