Let's Go Resources about Italy MORE

Italy

RAI is Italy's state broadcasting organization ÷ the BBC with a Latin flair.

Rome Post, designed in the fashion of major US newspaper sites, is an excellent source for English-language news from the capital city and the Vatican.

Italian News. This bare-bones site provides links to dozens of Italian-language news sites, including Il Corriere della Sera. In Italian only.

I Love Rome. But don't we all? The coolest thing about this site is that it lets you search all the movie theaters in the city for the time and place of any show you want to see. Also contains maps and information on sites and accommodations, public transportation, etc.

Italian State Tourist Board (ENIT). While this site provides tourist office locations and nuts-and-bolts information on hotels, museums, attractions and events by region, don't expect any critical reviews. In six languages.

Italian Tourist Web Guide. A great general Italian travel site, itwg.com is more easily navigable than the government site and contains more listings for the traveler looking to go off the beaten path. Includes online hotel booking. In English, German, Italian, and Spanish.

Enjoy Rome. Allow the friendly folks at Enjoy Rome, a local tourist agency, to assist you with their hotel-finding, walking tour, and other varied services.

Alitalia is Italy's national air carrier.

Aeroporti di Roma has maps and flight info for Rome's two major airports, Leonardo da Vinci (Fiumicino) and Ciampino. In English and Italian.

Autostrade.it. Highway tolls, routing, and general information about the Italian state highway system.

ATAC is Rome's public transportation system; the (very cluttered) site offers maps, fares, schedules, and other information on how to get around the city. In Italian only.

Hostels-aig.org is the Italian Youth Hostel Association.

Agritour has info on "Agriturismo," which involves staying on farms in rural areas of Italy.

In Italy Online is a great overall info site for Italy with tons of accommodations of all types and levels of quality. Also has information on every region in the country, and transportation, travel, and cultural information.

Associazione "Il Torrente". Mainly a site for B&Bs and short-let apartments, it allows you to search by price and feature. Has maps, but no photos.

Bed & Breakfast Association of Rome. A very useful site for those seeking broad listings of B&Bs and apartments available for rent in the Eternal City. All listings have photos. In English and Italian.
