When our favorite pensione in Rome closed several years ago, my husband and I were forced to start thinking creatively about where we could stay in Italy. Most hotels are too expensive for our modest budget, and we just aren’t into the hostel-thing any more. After a lot of research, we decided to try renting apartments, and we have never looked back. This practice is uncommon in North America, but we have now rented apartments all over Italy, and not only do we save a lot of money, we have also stayed in some great locations and have seen a slice of Italy which those who stay in hotels often miss.
