Hi! Going to Italy for the first time for a holiday. Looking for a couch between 8th and 18th September 2012 in Milan, Florence, Empoli, Rome and Naples. Any leads are also welcome.

Hi Samir,
I would welcome you if your travels are bringing you to north Italy. I live in the alps, in a small city called Merano. Anyway enjoy Italy it is really a nice country with the magic of diversity between north and south and anyway don't miss Rome - I love that city . Why Empoli? and what about Venice I think it is much more beautiful than Empoli - a very special place.
Best wishes for your travels

Hi Sophia,

Thank you for your offer. Unfortunately I do not plan to be that far up north in Italy this trip. Perhaps next time.

I plan on staying in Empoli as it is central to Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca with good and frequent train connections. No other reason. Empoli is just a base for these 4 places that I wish to go to.

I considered and debated on Venice and then finally dropped it. This time I'm doing the Milan-Rome (perhaps till Pompeii) stretch. If I add more places then the stay in each place gets too short and I will only end up going to the main places in the town. I will not get to walk around the small by-lanes and take in the sights and smells of the town.

Once again, thanks for your offer.
Samir
