Italian tour

Hi all, I have seen loads about cheap(ish) hotels in France but what about Italy? Is there an equivalent to Ibis etc?

I'm looking at riding through Italy and France back from Greece and I'm in the planning stages. It sort of overwhelms you a bit doesn't it?

Italian tour

I've ridden to Crete and back via Ancona, as well as round Lakes Garda and Como. There are some great little b&bs throughout Italy where you can just turn up. They are much nicer than chain hotels and the beauty of finding them on the hoof is that you do not have to be anywhere in particlular on any day, so less pressure on the riding.

Local B&Bs are great, and friendly. Find them on the national roads. It'll give you a chance to eat great food in small resturants. Also eat at any place with trucks parked outside. When crossing into France, don't use any of the expensive tunnels. Go over the top at Mont Cenis or Mont Genevre, both are super roads, and well worth riding.

Staying in Italy

don't bother with IBIS and the like, use the B&B's or if you are in the Dolomites there are lot's of small hotels and bars in the popular towns that are biker friendly and cheap. They usually have a board up outside with a pic of a mbike on it , so are easy to spot. Spend some time around Garda if you can, plenty of digs and great places to see and eat at. You won't regret your trip.

I use farmhouse B&B, Agritourismo, hand painted signs on the side of the road, economical, comical(I had a married couple singing to use during dinner), unusual(a converted barn with my bike parked on my patio!)
