We just thought we would throw this out there. We are hard at work trying to find an apartment in the north of Italy. We are looking preferably for a quiet, 2-bedroom, completely furnished place with facilities for cooking and a place for the car. We would not complain if the area around it was pretty and the city, charming! The area we are targeting is the Veneto, either in the Veneto Plain or the Dolomites. We are looking at cities like Verona, Padua, Treviso, Vicenza or even Asiago, Montagnana, Cittadella or some of the smaller cities in that area. Venice is too expensive for us and with it being summer (we plan to leave Sicily at the end of May) this might prove challenging! There are so many possibilities, we are also considering the cities in the Dolomites, like Belluno, Longarone, Feltre, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Vittorio Veneto and cities that might be more winter resorts, but also have accommodations we could rent for the summer at perhaps more affordable rates.
If anyone has any suggestions or a place they know of somewhere in this region that they would love to rent to two reliable, clean, honest, trustworthy retirees, by all means let us know!
In the meantime we'll keep searching and hoping that we get lucky one more time in finding great landlords, a comfortable apartment, beautiful and interesting scenery to look at and more adventures to tell you about.
