A Traveler's Dilemma - What would you do?

Jump to last reply

HERE'S THE DILEMMA: We leave from NY to Italy in five days. Eighteen days ago I made a reservation by phone for our first two nights at an agriturismo in the Sabine Hills. The person who answered spoke English a little but was able to repeat the dates and also gave me a phone number to call when we arrived in Italy. When I finished the call I sent an email to the place and asked for an email confirmation. I did not receive a response.

I had to be away for a week, came back and still no confirmation. This week I sent two more emails, called dozens of times and there was only a recorded message in Italian which I could not understand - except for the number I was given originally. I called that number and no one answered.

Yesterday I went to a local Italian Deli, dialed the number in Italy and the owner was nice enough to listen to the message. It was asking for the caller’s telephone number and said they would return the call. He left a message with my phone number and explained the situation in Italian.

I checked Tripadvisor and someone had left a post for a visit on the 11th. I called this morning - same message. I tried to send a fax but it wasn't answered.

I received responses from two other places in Sabina that have rooms. We leave in five days.
