Accommodation in the Italian cities

Being in the city centre means booking into a hotel or renting an apartment. Spacious holiday home villas can be found but typically on the outskirts of the city which means a daily commute in to town - the advantage is being able to relax by the pool if you want to give sight seeing a miss!

Booking ahead, especially in the popuar cities during the peak summer months can help secure your holiday rentals in the best locations - close to the pedestrianised zones in cities like Rome and Florence which is where most of the historical attractions usually reside.
