How to reduce the cost of staying in Italy without compromising the quality of rest?
It’s very difficult to imagine that Italy is not at all expensive, especially during the “alta stagione” (mid season). Therefore, instead of saving on what you can, denying yourself the pleasures, it is better to eliminate unnecessary expenses before departure. Financial planning of the trip is justified.
