Vinitaly - how to choose accommodation

English
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.
We give you some tips if you still have any idea on how to find a place o stay.
Vinitaly at VeronaFiere, an event you can't miss if you like wine

1) if possible, plan your trip in advance (months in advance), but if you are reading this post it is probably too late
2) don't choose a hotel in the suburbs where public transport is not excellent and where traffic and caos is obviously part of the offer.
3) have a look to the train stations nearby and select those where fast trains pass almost every hours. From here you just need 10 minutes to reach the station Porta Nuova in Verona. Here, right out of the train there are shuttle bus toward the Exhibition center (Veronafiere) and they are for free.
4) select a comfortable place to stay where you can relax after a whole day at Vinitaly. You'll be tired and maybe "a little drunk", so having a walk in the nature won't be a bad idea. Be also sure that services in this area are available (restaurants, bars, supermarkets and whatever you may need). One of the best options in this case is Peschiera del Garda, on Lake Garda where you have all this and where there is also the motorway's toll if you can't avoid to go by car.
5) be sure that the prices are fair and obviously lower than prices of Verona city center (the tourist season on the lake, during Vinitaly, hasn't still begun so it will be easier to get great deals).

The accommodation we suggest respects all the points above (except n. 1 that would be the best option for you). It is called Experia residence and it is situated in the middle of a Golf Club, a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay where the only noise you will hear when you go to sleep will be the birds singing.
