Hotel Charly, Via Settala, 76, phone: 0039.02.20.47.190
Small, cosy hotel near the train station. It’s on a quiet street and convenient to the metro. Nice people and great price for Milan.
Villa Mustafà, Via Casale, 71, Montefalco, Italy. Phone: +39.07.42.37.8329
Wonderful agriturismo just outside of Montefalco, a quaint hill town in Umbria. Large, comfortable rooms with views of the vineyards. Gracious hosts who give helpful advice on itineraries for the area. They also provide a generous breakfast with home-baked goodies and farm fresh eggs. The outdoor patio is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the fabulous country views.
Villa Nuba, Strada vicinale Colle San Giorgio, 70, Perugia, Italy. Phone: +39.07.55.72.5765
Beautiful and well appointed apartments with a lovely pool and grounds just fifteen minutes from the old city center of Perugia. Giuseppe and Elga are the greatest hosts you could have for Perugia and the Umbrian region. This would make a great base for visiting Umbria.
The Beehive, Via Marghera, 8, Rome, Italy. Phone: 0039.06.44.70.4553
This is a budget friendly, small hotel/hostel. Rooms with a private bath are available. Run by an American couple, it has a friendly and hip vibe. Small, basic rooms, a healthy and organic breakfast is available on site for a small fee. It also has a nice patio for relaxing outside. The location near Termini Train Station is quiet and safe, yet very convenient.
Piccolo Hotel Puccini, Via da Poggiol, 9, Lucca, Italy. Phone: +39.05.83.55421
Great location inside the city walls near Piazza San Michele. Small, cosy hotel with a light breakfast. Great staff. Street noise is a factor on busy weekends.
