I am planning a travel to Italy by the end of July and I would love you to help me to find the best and cheapest hotels. Just want your advise. I am looking for nice places with private parking since I am travelling with my parents and they want to keep the car safe in the hotel parking.
We want to visit Naples, Sorrento, Pompei, the Amalfi Coast in the south of the country. And in the north we want to see Spezia and Cinque Terre. Do you know any good hotels in that zones, with private garage?
And finally, can you say the hotel you prefer best in Rome?
I'm sorry, I haven't experienced any hotel in the areas you've mentioned, but I can suggest you to give a look to the following web sites, where somethimes come out good offers, and you can read a detailed description of the hotel.
Alternatevely, you can contact directly the local tourist office, asking them to send you a list of accommodations with private parking. (I can help you to find their web sites, if you've any problem. By memory I only remember www.romaturismo.it (Rome))
que tal tu viaje a italia?te ha gustado? nos fuimos en valencia, que es preciosa, y en murcia, que tambien nos gusto, pero alicante y cartagena no merecian la pena. (en la costa hay demasiados rascacielos y habitaciones..y muy poca naturaleza). No tuvimos tiempo de visitar al interior.
Hello Laura and thank you for your help. You are becoming my Italy Cicerone!
I enjoyed my last travel to Italy very much. I was in Pordenone, Venice, Firenze and Bologna. I loved Firenze and in July I am going there again, this time with my parents. I'll be glad to show them what I loved from that city. I loved having walks in Venice and Firenze, this cities are made for walking. I spent hours and hours discovering streets and getting lost. In Firenze I loved the sight from Piazzale Michelangelo. I went there on a rainy day and I was all alone (except a group of japanese ones because nothing stops their cameras, not even a heavy rain!) admiring a grey view of the city and getting wet. Then I had to go fast to get cover under a porch near the Arno where I stayed for a long time watching the people and the cars going by. It was a nice noon.
¿Qué es lo que más te gustó de Valencia?

calatrava buildings by night, el barrio del carmen and the cathedral square, and a place called Tasca angel where a couple of friend of mine brought me to eat tapas. (en el barrio del carmen).
we basically stayed there just for half day , but I've friends living in valencia, so I hope to come back again and enjoy the city longer!
sobre todo espero que mis proximas vacaciones sean mas felices..before leaving I had a car accident, when I was going to my friend's home to leave my dwarf rabbit to my friend during my vacation.
My rabbit was very old and ill, and died during my absence, although my friend took a special care of him..
por eso he pasado todas las vacacion llamando a mi amigo, y esperando para la vida de mi conejo..ha sido muy triste.
(hoy tengo el examen de espanol...y estoy estudiando gramatica..)
Tuviste mala suerte. Lo bueno de tener mala suerte es que la próxima vez que vengas a Valencia tendrás mejor suerte. Hope you pass your spanish exam.
The simple advise about Naples - is don't go there! We drove there in Jan & the driving there is to be believed.. to ans yr Q We also stayed in the Holiday Inn.. if you can stomach 'American' b'fast & 'American'.. you will enjoy & it is SAFE!
I assume you might want to visit the ruins at Pompei - well there are a few reasonably priced hotels immediately outside & I would assume safe parkings.
Amalfi coast is so beautiful & we enjoyed it in Jan - but certainly wouldnt go there in July - not unless seeking a Canonisation for patience!
Soz if this sounds gloom..
if you wanna chat - snip

Thank you very much for your help Chris. My eyes are one the Naples Holiday Inn... sure my parents don't mind having any kind of breakfast while the car is safe. You know, they take more care of the car than of me... I am jealous
So, I know a very good B&B in Sorrento, which I think is an ideal place to visit Napoli, Pompei, Capri, Positano or Amalfi, because Sorrento is well connected with all of these cities, and its a charming place anyway. I think also their price is okay and the family is realy friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend it!
This B&B is not in the center of Sorrento but with a nice sea view on the Gulf of Napoli.

That Casa Mazzola looks amazing and cheap. Thank you very much Anita!
