If you wanna come and celebrate the 450th anniversary of this marvelous city with us and yet doesn’t know where to stay, I always recommend Booking.com when I talk about hotels, simply because I use Booking to make my own reservations, but as there are many nice deals on internet nowadays, I have used Detecta Hotel to research whether these deals fit both the hotel and the period that will be the travelling, and I’ve had good surprises with this tool.
