Northern Italy Without Reservations?

Jump to last reply

I'm hoping that those of you who know Italy well can steer us in the right direction. Thanks to Italian law and my husband's grandfather, we were recently granted dual citizenship with Italy (and the US) and we just received our Italian passports - a dream come true! We're planning a three-week trip to Italy later this year to scope out cities where we might want to spend a few months each year when I retire in a year or two.

My work schedule won't allow us to visit until next fall. We're tentatively planning late October to mid-November, flying into Venice and out of Rome. We'll rent a car for maximum flexibility. The cities we're thinking of visiting are Belluno, Verona, Parma, Modena, Siena and Perugia. We want to stay in or as close to the city center as possible. We don't require a lot - cleanliness and a decent bed. We'll make reservations for the night we arrive in Venice and the night before we leave Rome, but we'd like to keep the rest of the trip flexible so we're not tied down to hotel reservations. Should we be okay at that time of year to arrive in those cities without reservations? As a side note, we'll have basic conversational Italian by then.

Also, if anyone has lodging suggestions for any of these cities, we'd love to know them. Thanks in advance!

Ellen
