Italian Hotel Reservations: Enjoy Your Trip!

By Chris Robertson

According to the Italian Tourism Board, there are about 40,000 hotels in Italy. That's a lot to choose from when you're traveling from overseas. Whether you're planning to stay in a hotel in Venice or a hotel in Rome, here's what you should know when you make your Italian hotel reservations:

1. Pay your deposit - According to law, a hotel booking is valid upon payment of a deposit. Your deposit is refundable upon cancellation of your reservation at least 14 days in advance of your stay, or 30 days in advance if you are going during tourist season.

2. Time your trip - In cities and resorts, the off-season is considered November through March. April, May, September, and November are considered the off-season for ski resorts. Rates for a hotel in Venezia or Roma will be less during the off season.

3. Hotel ratings - The tourism bureau gives hotels ratings from one to five stars, with five stars signifying deluxe accommodations. Bed and breakfast accommodations are available throughout Italy, but they are not given ratings.

4. Day hotels - If you're on the move and simply need a place to freshen up, Italy offers day hotels. With baths, showers, beauty salons, baggage checking, and private rooms, day hotels are often found in cities and near train stations.

After you've made your Italian hotel reservations, paid your deposit, and arrive at your hotel in Venice, your hotel in Rome, or another Italian destination, it's time to enjoy your vacation. The Italian Tourism Board provides these tips to help ensure that your vacation is the memorable experience you deserve:

* Avoid counterfeit goods - A new 2005 law imposes heavy fines on those who purchase counterfeit goods. If you're looking for knockoffs with luxury labels, you may want to think twice. Purchasing such goods carries a fine of up to 10,000 Euros.

* Know the duty-free limits - The U.S. allows citizens returning from Italy to bring in up to $400 worth of products duty free. A duty charge of ten percent of the next $1,000 worth of goods will be assessed.

* No visa required - U.S. citizens staying in Italy fewer than 90 days do not need a visa.

* Registration required - Tourists are required to register with the police within three days of arrival. Hotels generally do this on behalf of their guests, but it's wise to double check when making your Italian hotel reservations. If you're staying in a private home or with friends, you should go to the nearest police station to register.
