Finding Last-Minute Rooms at the Olympics

How do I know so much? I spent all weekend securing my own accommodations! Keep checking this space for the very latest (I will have more information on private owners renting apartments):
  • Cartan Their packages cost nearly $1,000 per person, per night for a stay in Turin, about half that for their "mountain program."
  • CoSport (also official U.S. agent for event tickets)
  • Craig's List (Milan) This is how I found the apartment I am renting for the duration of the Games!
  • Expatriates.com Private owners have a few apartments listed.
  • Extra Torino Hotel rooms in Turin starting at 270 euros per night. Rooms in mountain lodgings starting at 320 euros a night.
  • ItalyWinterGames.com They have a number of apartments still available in Turin, including the center. Prices start at $160 per person, per night.
  • Jumbo Grandi Eventi
  • Ludus Tours Has more availability in the mountain towns.
  • Mary Nicotra (e-mail: maria.nicotra1@tin.it) is a Torinese resident who has a number of apartments available in decent locations for decent prices. Tell her what you are looking for and she can find what you need.
  • Montagnedoc
  • Select Italy They have apartments still available in Turin and mountain towns, at about $5,000 per week. They still have hotel rooms in Turin at $500 and up per night.
  • Somewhere Tours Has a a double room in a centrally located Turin apartment for 280 euros per night.
  • Vacation Rentals By Owner Worth a search for "Turin" and some e-mails, but I only heard back from one owner and her apartment is taken.

It happens if your friends unexpectedly visit your place and your place is so small to accommodate them, you need a last minute room reservation.
