Use them to book your trip to Italy!
In Italy for connections between major cities (such as Rome, Milan, Florence, Venice, Naples) high-speed trains are the best, fastest and cheapest solution and Trainline offers you the best deals.
This is a great website to search for a lot of different airlines. We usually start with this website for price comparison and for looking at budget carriers. You can also set a wide period (i.e. one month) in order to find the cheapest days to travel.
This is a very cool flight search engine. They have a calendar view that lets you see the cheapest day to fly. It is quite similar to Skyscanner and offers almost the same features but you may prefer their graphical user interface.
Booking.com is our favourite search engine for accommodation. It probably has the widest selection of budget accommodation in the world. They now include also apartments, villas and even boats. They offer a wide range of search filters and their rating system is very useful to have real feedback from other travellers. Also, they have outstanding customer service and if you found a cheaper solution somewhere else they refund you.
This is the most famous site that connects directly with homeowners who rent out their homes/apartments. You can choose to rent a full apartment or just a room with a bathroom. We suggest you use the map search so that you can have a better idea of the location of the house. They sometimes are in a non-touristy part of the city so make sure that there are good transport connections with the centre and the main tourist attraction.
