Vinitaly - how to choose accommodation

Verona fiera
You are in trouble.. why?
You have to attend Vinitaly, the most important international exhibition in Italy about Wine that take place in Verona every year, but you don't have a place to stay.
Every hotel you call say that is already booked or in some cases prices are really too high.
This problem is common during the month before Vinitaly and often also before. In fact, many producers and exhibitors use to book their accommodation even 1 year before so it is so hard to find a place to stay in the center of Verona.

Italy - An Award Winning Destination

It will come as no surprise, but in an award ceremony by the Daily & Sunday Telegraph Travel Awards 2011, Italy was again nominated "Favourite European Country" by 23,000 polled newspaper readers.

Travelling with your best friend


It’s a dilemma you’d love to take a break, but you genuinely hate leaving your four- legged friend in kennels. You could ask your parents again, but last time he stayed there he dug up their garden, so they probably won’t agree.

But you don’t have to stay at home; now you can visit historic and beautiful places with your best friend in tow. How? Well, Verona has some impressive facilities for people travelling with pets, so why not give it a try.
